  • The X-Men are the fifth most popular search in the Key Collector Comics database beaten out only by Hot Keys, Trending 20, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Spec Deck
  • Throughout March, long-standing high sales of classic X-Men villain key issues in high grades were shattered by $500 - $1,000+, specifically the Juggernaut (X-Men #12), the Sentinels (X-Men #14) and Emma Frost (X-Men #129)
  • The value of Wolverine’s arch-nemesis, Sabretooth is often overlooked as he first appears in the middle of the run in the Iron Fist title but this week gave way to a surge of momentum for this undervalued issue
  • This week saw the 9.6 grade cross the $2k threshold for the first time
  • Let this issue serve as a reminder to utilize the Check Your Collection Subscriber feature for issues in your collection that could use a closer look
  • The $0.35 price variant of Iron Fist #14 sells on average for 15-20x higher than the standard $0.30 cover price
  • Price variants were printed in fewer quantities and distributed to specific geographic areas to analyze the risk of customer attrition versus increased profit
  • An honorable mention goes to Iron Fist’s first appearance in Marvel Premiere #15 that sold for $14,400 on Heritage
  • This is $10,000 higher than previous 9.8 sales for a copy with white pages, exceptional color and cover appeal
