Costing more and taking longer to get a GA book graded...grading + image + postage
both ways to CGC is over $125.00 per book with standard grading time of 28 days.
Getting just a little too much for me.
Not only does my copy of SENSATION #68 feature the first appearance of the
Original Golden Age HUNTRESS but might contain the first image of the
BLACK CANARY in a promotional page for FLASH COMICS #86. Both books
were August 1947 issues with on sale dates of June 1947.
I know that a seller can ask whatever he wants to and it's up to the buyer
to be willing to pay it but...COMIC CONNECT has a copy of MARVEL FAMILY #1
cgc graded 5.0 for the Buy Now price of $49,999.00.
As preservation is the main reason I have had my books graded I wonder if
PGX COMICS might be the way to go. Their GOLDEN AGE grading is quoted
at $28.00 per book with an Express Grading fee(12 Business Days) for an
additional $6.00 per book.
Has anyone had an experience with this company?
MARVEL FAMILY #1 appears to be on the move value wise. HAKES Auction 3235 Session II
has a MARVEL FAMILY #1 with a starting bid of $5,000.00. NOSTOMANIA shows a CGC 5.0
valued at $12,900.00 and a 3.0 for $8,080.00.
Be interested to see what my CGC 3.0 copy (0188743003) would be valued at.
Could be the most valuable comic book in my collection.
