Besides the Plat, which book is most valuable?

Not sure. With the movie news, probably the A&A 1:20 9.9.

The Harbinger 1 9.8s are up there.

My favorite though is the Unity 1 Gold 9.9. I don't know if that's the highest. I haven't looked at the census.

I would say the 9.9 Unity 1 Gold is 2nd in value.

Thanks, Greg!

I looked at the census, and it looks like there are:
Unity 0 Red - 1 9.9
Unity 1 - (1) 10, (4) 9.9
Unity 1 Gold - (2) 9.9
Unity 1 Platinum - (1) 10

So, it's definitely a rarity, but not unique. There is another one. Of all those Unity issues, only 9 are graded higher than 9.8.

Nice set of slabs. That Plat must have cost a fortune.

I bought a collection from a fellow member, and the price was very reasonable. You'd be surprised.

Not a bad list. I would think the 9.9 Magnus 0 would be in there somewhere. I'm not sure how I feel about the Bloodshot pink. I still believe there is only one copy (my 9.6). The 2nd copy, to my knowledge, was never confirmed and, if memory serves, there were questions about the veracity of the seller. Also, I think the Valiant Heroes Special is undervalued. Yes, there are 6 9.8s, but 5 of them were submitted at the same time by me in Chicago way back when. I don't know that there's another 'stash' of high grade copies out there. Last thing, and some might question it because of how recent the find is, but I think the 9.8 silver foil Secrets of the Valiant Universe #1 belongs on that list. I highly doubt there will ever be more than the 3 current 9.8s. :thumb:

This list will be somewhat different by this time next year, and now that I have more information (did the best that I could at the time) I can focus perhaps on an "expanded" list before too long; perhaps top 20?

Needless to say, I really want to increase visibility on these gems, as it is LONG overdue.
