Price Check on Gold Key Magnus #1 and Solar #1 Set in 7.5

Post by Serpentor »

I have an opportunity to buy a pair of books for $1000 shipped. Gold Key Magnus #1 in CGC 7.5 with OW pages and Gold Key Doctor Solar #1 in 7.5 with CR/OW pages. It doesn't seem like a bad deal, but not a smoking deal either. What are your thoughts?

Just using prior sales, you could make the case that $1,100 would be a reasonable deal... so it's reasonable plus about 10% off. :)

Great deal IMO. I paid $450 for my 7.5, and felt extremely lucky. Getting both in one go as well. Super nice.

Thanks :thumb:. I'm right on the verge of pulling the trigger on it. If someone wanted to go in as partners and take the Doctor Solar for $500, I would pick them up immediately. I don't really need that book now that I found one.

Updating this post since they have arrived and any talk of pressing is off the table. I don't think they would benefit from a press. They look great as-is :)
