  1. And now for something a little different. Not a comic book or comic art, but my top 5 comic cards I purchased in 2023! Apologies that the audio is a little low...I'm new to this "content creation" thing.
  2. I have every copy of the card in every language (including proofs), but they're on display elsewhere. Yes those are the originals to Signet and Locket. You can see my art collection here: https://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryDetail.asp?GCat=107147
  3. The crown jewel of my comic OA collection, I present Dave Palumbo’s Wolverine from Marvel Masterpieces 2020.
  4. Oh god did a 9.8 really sell for $5K last week? That can' t be legit can it?
  5. $1800 PayPal shipped with insurance US only please. Returns welcome. She’s beat but still beautiful.
  6. Undecided as of yet. Probably these boards.
  7. Cool thing about this copy is it was from the collection of Julius Schwartz.
  8. Nope, so there are 2 coming for sale soon!
  9. Here’s my copy. It will be up for sale soon!
  10. 2 more $3K+ showings for X-Men 129. It appears this is the new norm for this book, even for not so nicely presenting copies. https://www.ebay.com/itm/X-MEN-129-CGC-9-8-WP-NEWSSTAND-RARE-1st-KITTY-PRYDE-EMMA-FROST-SEBASTIAN-SHAW-/254874527700?nma=true&si=rbarKKFBKJNLc5Bnz9TkXCU8d8M%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 https://www.ebay.com/itm/X-Men-129-1980-CGC-9-8-1st-Appearance-of-Kitty-Pride-Emma-Frost-Seb-Shaw-/174647538416?nma=true&si=rbarKKFBKJNLc5Bnz9TkXCU8d8M%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  11. $3840. Essentially doubled in price in the past 2 months. https://comics.ha.com/itm/modern-age-1980-present-/superhero/x-men-129-marvel-1980-cgc-nm-mt-98-white-pages/a/122107-15636.s?ic2=mytracked-lotspage-lotlinks-12202013&tab=MyTrackedLots-101116
  12. I have some Jeff Easley transfer sketches from the 2019 Flair set available. They're pretty rough because he used them to transfer the pencils from the paper to the painting surface. Still very cool process art.
  13. It either means the 9.8 is overpriced (unlikely since 3 sold very quickly at that price), or 9.6s are underpriced, and will also disappear shortly from the supply. I had been looking for this book in 9.8 for a couple months and none were available. I snagged one ~$2400 once these sales happened.
  14. Julie also mentioned that her Clone from Alpha sold privately for $120K at some point (she didn't sell it for that, a private collector did). Not proof, but strong evidence of a 6 figure sale.

  16. Walking Dead #1 cover? Maybe a REAL nice early Spawn cover?

  18. As much as the power of the card matters in MtG art, there actually ARE other factors. I own a bunch of pieces that are blah cards, but beautiful art, and not cheap to purchase. The name of the artist DOES matter too. As does nostalgia.
  19. It's definitely higher than I thought it would go for, but it is a nicer Phil piece. The Foglios definitely have a big following outside of MTG, and their pieces were all sold long ago, so they are very rare to come up for auction. Also, bitcoin.
  20. But she's evolved as an artist a LOT since then. The art on the original Force of Will would be mostly forgettable on a non-iconic card. The arts for these Planeswalkers are really amazing, and traditionally painted PWer art is few and far between, adding another premium.
  21. I wouldn't say that Force of Will has anything to do with this. Terese has a very distinct style that is really appealing to a lot of collectors. I would love to own a Nielsen, but in general her cards don't fit my collection, or are out of my price range.
