What up CHU!?! Shawn B., the One Year Later Investigator, 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.Winners
Red Sonja #1 Variant J. Scott Campbell Cover – Anthony Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $8
Sold out at retailers. Still a ton of sales activity on this one. But hey it’s JSC no big shocker here.
God Country #1 – Anthony & Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $22
No shocker here! This one has averaged as high as $35 going back to March. And all the variants are doing well also including the 2nd printing.
Spider-Man #12 Isanove Variant – Mel Pick
Original Value: $20 Current Value: $24
Unlike a lot of variants this one is still hanging on to it’s value.
Doctor Crowe #1 – Anthony Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $4 Still available at Midtown.
Recent sales on the bay have been for well below cover plus shipping. There may have been quick flip potential on this one because it did sell out, because early sets of both covers sold as high as $15, but the sales are over 90 days so I don’t have the data to back it up.
Captain America Steve Rogers #9 Kirby 100th Anniversary Variant – Poyo Pick
Original Value: $10 Current Value: $5
Maybe more for the PC since it’s Kirby.
Knight Guardians Of Relativity #1 – Poyo Pick
Original Value: $4 Current Value: $4 Still available at online retailers.
I know this one heated up just a little bit for a small amount of time but I am unsure of the value at that time.
Daredevil #15 Bermejo Variant – Mel Pick
Original Value: $20 Current Value: $15
I grabbed this one. Still a really cool cover.
SStar Wars Poe Dameron #10 40th Anniversary Variant – Original Value: $20 Current Value: $33
