PGM Hulk 330--Mark Jewelers
3 3

9 posts in this topic

I've got another book much higher in the queue to post later, but I thought the forum participants might find this book interesting. I just found this Friday while sorting through books. It definitely needs pressing, and my untrained eye thinks it's a good candidate to remove the superficial non-color-breaking defects. This probably wouldn't be anywhere on my grading list, but for the MJs insert, albeit this is still a milestone issue as the first McFarlane Hulk. I haven't been able to find a price point to help ascertain how worth the grading expense would be. None sold recently or listed for sale. I wish there was a quick way to ID these MJs in a bagged/boarded comic b/c I've only found them by randomly opening books, not yet when I intentionally grab a handful thinking there might be one and sort through it.

8.5-9.0 due to staple stress breaking color and that bottom right corner of cover.

9.0 is about the max I was thinking with C&P. 9.2 if super lucky. From why I've been able to determine, the majority of the MJs out there are in garbage condition. That or they're stored safely by a specialist collector and not for sale. Getting a 9.0 is about the equivalent of a 9.8 with a regular comic

8.5-9.0 after a C&P.

Minor key IMO. It should get more love but the cover is kind of dull and most folks love the MacFarlane Spidey era stuff.

 Might be worth grading with the Mark Jewelers insert. I rediscovered many of these fairly recently as I rebagged and boarded my Bronze and Copper Age ASMs. They'll be thicker and have more rigidness than a regular edition but trying to feel that out when rifling through a long box is hard.

Thanks for sharing.

Recent sales for this book (direct edition) in ~9.0 CGC are a bit all over the map. Newsstands are higher, but there aren't many of them. No MJs that I've found. All things being equal, $24 is a pretty small price to pay if some of the prices I've seen for minor keys with MJs are indicative of demand.  It seems like MJs demand 50% or more premium depending on the significance of the book. Since I have no intention of selling anytime soon, I'd love a TM signature series for it. I'm going to say the TM Hulk run is the more important between Spider-man and Hulk b/c my Spider-mans look like dog 💩
