Marty - can you let us know what CGC put on the label for distinguishing your variant?
Overstreet has two entries:

1) nn scarce used in SOTI, pg 310 - 311

2) Diff. version (7 1/4 x 11")- redrawn 16 pgs, paper cover

Tommy...

I posted scans of my copy and the copy used by Overstreet on CBCS thread Astonishing Comics Prices
Post #33.
CGC lists it on the label as Variant Edition...0220136001.

Original edition with extra illustrated panels on cover.

Good stuff Marty - keeo it coming, it's like filling in Gerber White Spaces! I'll try and get these in
the database. Stay tuned, I'll confirm here if all ok.

Marty - what are the Grand Slam Three Aces? Promotionals? Not seeing refs in Overstreet.

PS, got your Peter Penny added to the development database, will let you know when it's
promoted to production.

Tommy...

Thank you for all your efforts.
My copies of GRAND SLAM THREE ACES were purchased off the newsstand right alongside all the
other major comics in 1945. Published by Anglo-American Publishing in Ontario Canada.
They carry advertising for Fawcett Publications CAPTAIN MARVEL CLUB and MACHANIX ILLUSTRATED
magazine.

While listing my comics I discovered that the value of my remainder copy of
DETECTIVE COMICS #168 which I graded at 0.5 was extremely high...
Uncertified value $559.00
CGC value $1,140.00
CBCS value $1,040.00

I'm pleased at the value placed on it but would anyone actually pay that much?

Marty - see for yourself. We feel those numbers are very accurate, based on this...

Sign in, click Comics, then Pricing.
Now, search for Detective Comics
Now, "GoToIssue" 168
Click on that issue number

Now you are on the "pricing details" page. Scroll down. See the pricing
curves and actual sales recorded for this issue? Those sales are
what fuels the Nostomania pricing algorithms. If we have recent sales,
(and we do here), those numbers are solid.

Can you see how somebody recently paid over 8 thousand dollars for a
VG+ ?? It's getting insane, some of the sales for these books. But great
for you! Let us know if this helped.

STARMAN...

I am not questioning the accuracy of the numbers just the willingness of someone
to pay that amount.
Thanks for your response.

Marty - ahhh... Canadian publisher. So probably not listed in Overstreet?

Good news is Jim decided this year Nostomania should start supporting
Canadian, U.K., and other Editions and publishers. Mainly because we are seeing
more and more sales of these and we feel our users will for example want to know
the price differential between a U.K. Hulk 2 and a U.S. Hulk 2.

And... of course, there are collectors like yourself who are living historical treasures,
who purchased books like these off the stands. Amazing.

So we will get this title in the database for you. Remember though, the change
won't migrate to the production database until the next site update.

RE: My DETECTIVE #168...it would appear that I could almost double it's value by
having it graded.

I have 692 books on my PARK AVENUE COLLECTION List...still a few more to
post.
Next I'll try listing my CIRCLE COMICS COLLECTION which includes BATMAN #295
through #545 and DETECTIVE #507 through #681.
Also includes a large assortment of Bronze Age MARVEL'S & DC'S bought from the
PASSAIC BOOK CENTER.

Marty - good news here, we were able to find some actual sales for "seed values" and now have this title in our development database. The bad news is you have to wait until the next site update to add these to your collection in My Lists.

I think what happened here is originally, for some reason, we were only going to support U.S. publishers, but have since changed that policy, so if you see any Canadian-published titles that are missing from Nostomania, we will add them. Thanks Marty.
