The one thing that hasn’t been taken into account about the price is that it’s on websites that require fees to be paid. At 3k on eBay 10% goes to them and 2.7% goes to PayPal. Some of you noted that they are consistent on 25-2600. That is roughly what would be left after the fees are paid. It may not be a 3k book, but markups are required to get the price you want. 2500 up from 1700 back in 2017 isn’t that big of spike on a book like this. We see modern books printed in the hundreds of thousands have bigger jumps that are readily available.

So the game begins...

I think that a 9.8 Platinum could sell for $10,000. Absolutely.

Not at this stage though. I suspect that the type of collectors with the motivation and pockets to buy it are not ready to jump all in on this yet as no recent sales data for this book exists to provide them an updated/current baseline price/value expectation.

What would need to happen is a highly publicized auction with a few interested parties competing.

That would set the baseline, and signal to the market what sort of prices to expect moving forward.

Why would they put in a cbcs slab. It would be worth their while to switch it to a CGC slab.

I think they save a few dollars by using CBCS :)

And another one on the market. I seem to recall this one being available before. Is that correct?

I offered $850, but was outright rejected. I think that's what it's likely worth - in the 8.5 range, if I had to hazard a guess.

Saw that too. Does something look off with this Plat to you? I have a CGC 8.5, and have seen others, but the distortion in the logo doesn't seem to be consistent with the others. Kind of curious (and suspect) as to why it hasn't been graded.

It's the back, you can see a heavy spine crease, and there is distortion in the middle making it look like it's slightly bent.

Honestly, I think this one’s a fake. Having personally owned two copies; both raw, of which one I had slabbed a CGC 9.6 and sold directly on this site; I completely agree with you “something” is off. The price/V1 logo box looks f&ckered up. NO other copies that I’ve seen look like that. Goofier still is the front cover looks “altered”...but the back cover doesn’t, regardless of the distortion in the middle, like Steve pointed out.

This is one I would heavily emphasize that whole “buyer beware” thingy.

Just me two pence.

I think this book is legit. I have a raw copy that looks the same. I asked the seller to post some better pictures of the inside front/back cover.

Received a notice that the raw platinum book sold. Funny, I don't usually get those for items I am watching, but don't buy. Anyway, thought I'd drop a note here.
