Collector Lisa private msg quote post Address this user
If anyone has a copy of X-Force #1 [first printing] when I was at gocollect.com today the FMV of a 9.8 slabbed is $110.00 My problem is I have 6 complete sets of them that are still in polybags and not one is slabbed

Yup. I have 20 of them in polybags. I tried to move some of them a few years ago on ebay for $5 each - couldn't sell a single one.

This book had a huge print run...the 9,8 is a little harder to come by because the polybag put a linear indent in the back cover on a lot when they were stored and polybags can sometimes blunt corners. 9.8 is nice at $110, but the drop on a 9.6 to $35 makes it tough to justify grading when they're so readily available.

I think this book also peaked with the X-Force movie news, which has now sort of died with Fox. If the Fox movie ever sees light at Disney the 9.6 could see some more value temporarily, but it's a long shot right now.

That being said, slab and collect what you like regardless of other opinion. 9.8...9.6...it's still an iconic book.

Deadpool 2 movie ruined any sort of chance for X-Force being brought to the big screen. They literally just used it as 5 minute gag and that was it.

Actually, X-Force was no more than a five minute gag. That series was garbage.

Yep, that was one of the situations leading to my departure from the hobby in the 90's. I couldn't afford vintage comics back then, and I was stubbornly "MMM", so I didn't look elsewhere for the real quality books of the time.

The moment I do that, we'll be visited by an Intergalactic Federation of trillions who worship Liefeld, making each existing copy a relative rarity.

Sorry
