  • THIS WEEK’S TOP 3 RECORD BREAKERS [Previous High In Brackets]:
  • 9.8 sold for $2,692 [$2,100 last week] +28%
  • 9.6 sold for $975 [$725 in last week] +34%

  • Last week’s 9.6 high was broken 12x this week
  • Not often can we say who specifically holds the record for the highest sale but Pharcyde Comics reached out to Key Collector on Instagram with proof of sale that a couple of the record-breakers this week belonged to him
  • Pharcyde explained that the 1:25 was an investment to be given to his daughter, 15-20 years from now
  • This begs the question, is that what is happening with the majority of the high graded 1:25s of the Ultimate Fallout #4 variant and the ridiculously few Newsstands graded 9.8 (possibly only two known to exist)?
  • There are now 644 1:25s graded (CGC/CBCS) and 151 are graded 9.8 which is approximately 6% of the standard cover quantities in the same grade

  • 🏅 #4 on the Hot 10
  • 1st appearance of Mephisto
  • THIS WEEK’S TOP 3 RECORD BREAKERS [Previous High In Brackets]:
  • 9.6 sold for $15,950 [$9,700 last week] +64%
  • 9.4 sold for $8,000 [$5,250 in Feb] +52%
  • 8.5 sold for $2,800 [$2,325 last week] +20%
  • This issue has received a TON of attention lately due to speculation that Mephisto would be introduced in WandaVision
  • Hopefully by now, we all know that didn’t happen but the theories granted Mephisto attention like no other time in the character’s 30+ years of existence
  • But Silver Surfer #3 began increasing in value months before the WandaVision theories made the rounds
  • Remember in November, a 9.8 sold for $38,000. The last time a 9.8 sold was back in 2011 for $5,700
  • 9.6s were sitting at $5,000 which is a huge disparity from 9.8
  • In other words, a full pricing correction was set into motion with the November sale and though WandaVision likely had a part in accelerating the process, these values were due to increase on their own
  • These recent increases are not due to false hype but it will be interesting to see if bad speculation has a detrimental effect on this previously undervalued issue
