some modern variant signed by mike mayhew.

The description in the link seems either incorrect or very misleading. It certainly suggests that this is the real 1961 Fantastic Four #1.

"Gotham City Edition"

"Signed & sketch by Mike Mayhew on 8/31/18"

-- your position is that someone had a 9.6 1961 FF1 signed by Mike Mayhew ?

Its clearly a poor description, but will be made clear via the image.    Likely they have the same description in their database for any version or reprint of FF1.

Someone just sold an ASM 1 9.0 listed at 100K over in the Sales Forum.  

But, not sure if there was a PM offer or not (assume yes?).  Either way, it was listed for 100K an hour ago and it's already marked as sold.

I didn't even notice the signature.   Will remove from the list.   I actually doubt that X-men #1 9.8 is really the 1963 version.

I don't have a position on this. I'm just saying that description could be better. While it's obvious to me that this is not an FF1 from 1961, the date at the top of the description says 1961 instead of 2018 or whatever the actual date of publication is for this book. And yes, a pic would help to clear it up as well.

Just stumbled on this -- Crime Does Not Pay #24 CGC 9.4 squeaks in as well @ $102K --

https://comics.ha.com/itm/golden-age-1938-1955-/crime-does-not-pay-24-lev-gleason-1942-cgc-nm-94-cream-to-off-white-pages/a/7266-92009.s?ic4=OtherResults-SampleItem-071515&tab=ArchiveSearchResults-012417

This list is a cool idea, but if you really take the time to go fishing in HA's archives, the number of six-figure GA sales is probably quite stunning.

I am constantly apologizing to GA collectors as it is not my area of expertise especially outside of SuperHeroes - I know a few of the big ones to look for but definitely not all.   But I also tried to limit this to sales since 2020 when the most recent boom took off.

No apologies necessary; just musing out loud. (thumbsu
