What up CHUncanny X-Men!?! Shawn B. back with another One Year Later round up, where we take a look at some of the comics that Anthony, Mel and Poyo specced on one year ago. Their specs turn out to be quick flips, slow burns, straight up misses, straight up winners and on and on. Sometimes they spec with their hearts out of their passion for comics. Sometimes they spec based on data. And sometimes they spec based off the word on the street. Either way, all their specs appeal to a few or many collectors whether it is due to them having similar taste in writing or art, or just an opportunity for a collector to flip a book and make money to “support their habit”. So, this is our weekly chance to look back at how some of our buys from a year ago are doing today.
Uncanny Inhumans #11 Regular Cover – Anthony & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $6
The hype on Mosaic has died down but you could have easily double or tripled your money with a quick flip early on.
Uncanny Inhumans #11 Yasmine Putri Variant – Mel, Poyo & Anthony Pick
Original Value: $15 Current Value: $32
I am sure I will get some feedback on these numbers. But based on sales in the last 90 days this is the average. That being said, there are copies for sale now for $60 – 125. If you got this at the original value or cheaper and did a quick flip you could have made over $100 on the sale.
Hillbilly #1 – Anthony & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $10
Still holding strong a year later…..I can’t freaking believe it’s been a full year since this came out!
Black Panther #3 Kyle Baker Variant – Mel Pick
Original Value: $30 Current Value: Still available at Midtown and cheaper copies on eBay.
I wasn’t feeling this one either to be honest.
Haunted Mansion #4 Kelly Jones Variant – Mel Pick
Original Value: $15 Current Value: No recent sales. Still available at Midtown.
Copies for sale on eBay for $10-25. If you were able to get it at a low price originally, a quick flip could have made you something.
Sweetness #1 – Anthony & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: Still available at Midtown and cheaper copies on eBay.
No unspecced issues from this date that went up in value.
