Most Valuable CBCS Graded books?77

Collector rob_react private msg quote post Address this user
Ah, the joys of being able to ask this question.

Without a census to use for research I'm stuck monitoring books that come up for sale to add CBCS books to the $100,000 Club list. I've got just a handful so far, almost all from public auctions. I would love to hear about others that people know about (including form the powers that be *nudge nudge*)

Without a doubt. After so many years of being the red-headed stepchild of GA keys, Marvel 1 has been on the rise the past few years. Deservedly, in my opinion

Great set of books have come out of CBCS in the past year. I wonder if most of these were raw copies or graded before and CPRd.

That Suspense 3 was a sick book. Just insanely beautiful.

I'll wager a lot of them were raw copies just waiting for the right circumstances in order to be graded.

@conditionfreak Rob means that he has those CBCS books accounted for on his site

@conditionfreak Yeah, I don't own those. I have, for many years now, researched the most valuable comics in the hobby. The list above is the working list of $100,000+ CBCS graded comics I've captured for the $100,000 club.

Without a census, I'm really hindered in keeping track of what CBCS has graded.

I've never been a huge fan of that book in general, but that copy blew my mind.

I will tell you now, from what I know, that many of those books were never certified before.

Thanks for the info Steve. It's so cool to see new books coming into the grading world and using CBCS. Especially these significant books. Kudos my friend!
