MC 1 v Supe 1 for #3 

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Marvel 1 the #3 most valuable golden age book back in the 90's per OSPG? If so, looks like we're heading back there lol

A 9.2 Superman ! Would be a 5M + sale.  And maybe not even the best copy.  Then again, after this book sells, more HG copies of Marvel 1 could help it’s sales reach higher numbers.

Clark never would give you a bad time. I really apricate our friendship and understand why you sold your Batman 1. I think this is a crazy price for a Marvel 1 in 2.5. I will say Key books are getting so rare in low grade that people have to buy something now or will never have a chance to buy 1 again.

Harold the influx of new money seems unstoppable. What was once considered common is no longer, I guess

The new money is directed at keys and highest graded. Do you think books that don’t fit into those 2 categories are benefiting from this trend?  Are the run-of-the mill books also experiencing crazy price gains? I truly don’t know

I had my Tec 27 restored 40 years ago and all the key Dealers at the time called it a restored vg/f. I have always believed that having it restored in today's time would not benefit the price any. Buyers want high grade or low grade the middle don't seem to do much.

Heritage had a CBCS E restored 4.5 Tec 27 that sold for 167k in 2016 Detective Comics #27 (DC, 1939) CBCS Restored VG+ 4.5 Extensive | Lot #91043 | Heritage Auctions (ha.com)

 I think and the sale that closed on the 7.0 E was 336 Detective Comics #27 (DC, 1939) CGC Apparent FN/VF 7.0 Extensive | Lot #91041 | Heritage Auctions (ha.com) so as we know prices have jumped so the 167k 2016 sale of none cgc book would go way higher now

Didn't this one used to be a 9.0?   I always thought it was over graded at a 9.0 because of the writing.  I guess it got the "historical notation" exemption back then and now.

And currently All American #16 is the 4th most valuable Golden Age book according to Overstreet.
