This is a brand new article that highlights the top #1 book of the Hot 10 here at comicbookinvest.com
We will be looking at what has happened to the market in the week following the announcement of the #1 book. Trends, listings, and sales prices will be tracked from the perspective of both raw and the highest CGC graded books.
Last week, Alias #1 took the top spot on the Hot 10 list. This book has been on fire ever since the trailer dropped for Jessica Jones – the new upcoming Marvel TV series produced by Netflix. With the release of the first trailer and photos starring Krysten Ritter, the internet has been focused on this show with high expectations due to the success of Netflix's Daredevil series, which has been widely praised in the comic book community.
As of 11/5/15, there are 16 active listings on eBay. From the 16 active listings, three 9.8 CGC slabs are going for listed values of $565, $1,695 and $1,130. Raw Values are ranging from $85 for a 9.4 raw copy to the highest being $171 for a 9.6 raw copy.
There have only been 5 completed auctions since 10/30/15 (up to 11/04/15) with only one graded sale for a CGC 9.4 slab at $140.00. Raw sold listings ranged from $25 for a VG/FN copy to $100 for a 9.6 raw copy.
Market Analysis (3 months)
As you can see from the graph above, a 3 month view shows significant increases in this book in both sales and popularity. We also see from the 9.8 sales history that the fixed price point has stayed steady for the last month. I predict that this will not be staying like this for long – I can see a jump in prices shortly after Thanksgiving. The reason for this is because the Netflix release date for Jessica Jones is November 20, 2015. The Thanksgiving holiday for our US fans provides a perfect opportunity to binge watch all of the episodes and could spark additional interest. I would buy Alias #1 now before this book gets out of reach for most people.
