  • In June 2020, we predicted Daredevil #1 was grossly undervalued and would soon experience a price correction
  • After spending much of 2021 on the Hot List, we’d love to brag about our mutant abilities to see into the future but the truth is much simpler than that
  • Anticipating a comic book’s increase in value can be determined by analyzing comparable items
  • For example, in 2015/16, The Incredible Hulk #1 graded 5.5 jumped from an average sale of $8k to $15k
  • The Fantastic Four #1 averaged $7500 in the same grade throughout 2015/2016 then in 2017 increased to an average sale of $12k and even more in 2018
  • There is a cyclical aspect to Blue Chip Key Issues correcting in price that occurs over the course of years to match other comparable books that have increased in value
