Teen Titans #75 1:25 Hughes Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

Last month, a couple of 9.8s came up for sale and went for around $600. Jon Z mentioned on the Unpressable Defects podcast how rare this book truly could be, and sure enough, a raw copy appears and gets snatched up for $350. This book is in essence a ghost.

Afterlife with Archie #666 Convention Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

The trailer for the Netflix show just dropped and there are virtually no copies of this book for sale. The cover is a thick stock cover, so I’m pretty confident that 9.8s aren’t too hard to get. That being said, a 9.8 sold for$150, then a few days later for$275, while a 9.6 went for $140 and raws are averaging $75.

Daredevil #131 Pence Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepper

There are a lot of discussions on why Pence variants are worth less than their American dollar counterparts, so it was interesting to see a Pence copy in CGC 9.4 go for $425. This stood out as the last 9.4 sale was for only slightly more, and a few other 9.4s went for around $400 in the last few months (with one $500 outlier sale).
