adrian hunter Posted November 12, 2022 Share Posted November 12, 2022 So everytime we update comicbase we get that summary of top gainers and losers. And every time my eyeballs pop out of my head on the estimated value of my collection, and it's really, really difficult to believe some of these issues are selling for what's claimed. I thought the prices in comicbase were generated by a consensus of prices actually reported by comic shops and online services. But, as an example, who the hell is paying 86 dollars for a Superior Iron Man 8 when ebay has it for 3.24?! There is literally nothing interesting about Superior Iron Man 8, not the plot, art, or significant first appearances. It's literally being listed BELOW cover from several sellers. So how 86 dollars? Did someone actually grift the living hell out of a buyer and skew the results THIS BADLY? Or are people seriously inflating their sales and just not reporting right? This absolutely CANNOT be accurate. Sometimes I wonder why it will be weeks between Atomic Avenue sales using the default prices but i guess i know now! Superior Iron Man is just an example. Don't get caught up on this one detail. Baltimore: Empty Graves 4 is similar, below cover on ebay, 64 dollars in comicbase. NON-CGC versions of Joelle Jone's Lady Killer are routinely below cover to maybe 8 bucks. comicbase has a second print of #1 for 82 dollars. This isn't making any kind of sense. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
