SOLD: $2,000 CGC 9.6 SS - Bloodshot #0 (Platinum Error)

Post by DirtbagSailor »

I am NOT in a rush to sell, as clearly the market is all over the place due to the current state of affairs. Financially speaking, I am in a good place financially and have not taken a heavy hit as a result of COVID-19 (except my Delta and Carnival Stock drops this past month; will see how that plays out).

That said, there are likely a few out there who have been on the hunt for a Bloodshot #0 Platinum.

Well, there are only two Signature Series copies in the census currently (BOTH are 9.6).
  • 1. A copy signed and owned by Jason David Frank (Who played Bloodshot in the Bat in the Sun YouTube Series)

    2. THIS copy, signed by cover artist Joe Quesada. REALLY sweet signature placement too!
Perhaps you want make an offer now? Great!

Or,

Perhaps you want to make an offer down the road, because now is not the best time? Also possible.

Or I could just hold and make it available in a few years (or not).

Anyhow, just LMK. :thumb:

Sounds like the kind of beautiful comic that would be nice to see pictured here!

(not gonna make an offer though, as I'm happy with the one I have)

Nice book. GLWTS.

I am looking for CGC 9.8 Universal copy (so unsigned) Bloodshot 0 Platinum. Someone was on the board a few months ago saying they had one to sell and then disappeared.

I haven’t followed these sales lately, what’s the market on a blue versus yellow label?

Great book!

Generally speaking, yellow labels command a higher market value. However, with books like this, it sort of depends. As there are only 25 or so known copies, collector opinions will vary significantly.

Maybe I should be a bit clearer; without me logging into gpa on my phone, has there been a premium in price on recorded sales? Without disclosing details, are you looking for a premium on this book over its blue counterpart?

Thanks Greg. So there’s been no yellow label sales of this book?
Has it really been three years since the last copy surfaced?

Only two yellow label copies of this book exist, and neither JDF or I have ever sold our copies.

There have been copies for sale, so the book has "surfaced" but not sold at a venue that reports to GPA.

I think the majority of valiant slabs don’t get reported to sites that aggregate the data. I have bought over 1,000 VH1 and VEI slabs and less than 10% would have their sales data recorded anywhere.

When "researching prices" there's not much point in knowing sales with no accessible records also exist. :kidaround:

Yes, very fair price. Should make a board member very happy. Finally good to see a non-outrageous price come through, ... ie $7k raw price on the Bay. :-)

DBS could easily ask more and wait for his price. When I sold my Maxx Ashcans, I was happy with the price I received, but now if I were to sell them they would go for far, far more, even with additional copies that have shown up in the marketplace.

I didn’t think they would sell for what they do now (I’m sure a lot of it is speculative money), but it’s not like I can just login to ebay and get another copy.

I believe that this book could easily go for $2,500 under normal market conditions; however, clearly these are not normal market conditions.

Such an awesome book, was it a private signing with Joe Q or at a convention?

I paid $3103 for my 9.8 blue label in 2017, and I sold my 9.4 the same month for $1700 to help cover the costs.

I think this book is easily worth $2K.

That is a good price.

There's an unsigned CGC 9.8 over on the CGC Board for $6K (negotiable): https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/topic/ ... m-version/
