Comic book performance 2021
Things have cooled off since the heady days of a couple of months ago, but market sentiment remains strong, particularly among the blue chip assets.
Last week’s performance
Fractional secondary markets
Comics were mostly flat to down last week with the notable exception of a copy of Fantastic Four #5 CGC 9.2, which traded up nearly 30% (still well below FMV).
On average, comics are undervalued by around 16% on fractional secondary markets, though there’s a very wide range.
No new IPOs this week.
There are two comic books trading this week on Rally: Batman #2, and The Flash #123. As if to illustrate the divide between blue chips and non-blue chips, Batman #2 has some room to run, whereas The Flash #123 is a bit overvalued.
There are also a number of comics trading daily on the fractional secondary markets, and they’re undervalued by an average of 11%. (market cap as of Monday morning, inferred value accurate as of Wednesday morning).
Comiclink are auctioning off a number of key titles from the golden and silver age, including:
Amazing Fantasy (first Spiderman) #15 CGC 4.0 and CGC 3.5 – look for this key issue to top $50k and $40k, respectively, to bolster the trend of blue chips making moves upward. The CGC 4.0 copy is already at $52k.
Other issues to watch:
- Tales of Suspense #39 (first Ironman) CGC 8.5: look for $50k+ (at $50k now)
- Fantastic Four #1 CGC 6.5: $60k (at $21k now)
- Daredevil #1 CGC 9.0: $30k (at $20k now)
- Amazing Spider-Man #1 CGC 7.0: $35k (at $19k now)
