  • 1st appearance of Cobra Commander, Baroness, Snake-Eyes, Scarlett, Hawk, Grunt, Breaker, Rock 'N Roll, General Flagg, Stalker, Zap and Short-Fuze in comics.
  • For many of us, when hearing someone say the words "now you know" in our heads we finish the popular G.I. Joe cartoon sign-off it with "and knowing is half the battle." With this type of nostalgic muscle memory, it should come as no surprise that the comic book series, which the cartoon is based on, would sustain a steady demand for decades
  • The G.I. Joe comic vein is rooted even deeper in Marvel history as it was based off of an early 80s concept that Vietnam veteran and writer Larry Hama was working on called Fury Force featuring Nick Fury
  • Serendipitously, Hasbro was looking to team-up with Marvel at the same time as relaunchng the new 3.75-inch action figures (a term coined by Hasbro) and Hama's Fury Force concept was a snug fit for G.I. Joe
  • G.I. Joe comics have been published by Marvel, Image, Dreamwave, Devil's Due and IDW almost without interruption for almost 40 years
  • The most significant absence of new stories occured between 1995 (after the Todd McFarlane G.I. Joe Special) and 2001 when Image launched their first ongoing series
  • Despite multiple relaunches on the comic series and multiple movies, the demand has not caused any significant price spikes until the beginning of April 2020 when the $350-$400 9.8 CGC graded G.I. Joe #1 breached the $500 mark three times
  • This set a new standard of pricing for the book until the next milestone was cracked at $600 in July 2020
  • Since then, the book has had momentum, fueled in excess by Snake Eyes movie leaks (coming October 2021) and just recently, John Cena teasing Instagram with an image of the character Duke (although no confirmation of an upcoming role announcement)
  • August 2020 saw graded 9.8 sales sell between $600-$750
  • September 2020 posted early all-time highs of $900 and so far, a $600 9.8 has not been seen since
  • Last week, G.I. Joe sold for an all-time high $1,000 and this week, for the second week in a row, G.I. Joe #1 notches another $1,000 sale under its belt and retains its #7 spot on the list
