2023 MARKET REPORT: A COOL SLICE OF SAMURAI
There just isn't the activity on this book to make it truly hot, but this book is one of the 1980s-era must-own comics.
It will always be a key. Just not as hot as it used to be.
2022 MARKET REPORT: TOO RARE TO BE TOO HOT, BUT STILL A MUST-BUY
214 Universal copies in the CGC census tells its own story. Albedo 2 is a really tough book.
This is a weird book, which is difficult to pin a price on in virtually every grade. It's not a smooth ride, so if you're risk-averse then I advise you to look elsewhere.
CGC 9.0 almost doubled this year!
2021 MARKET REPORT: TOP GRADES DROP, OTHERS RISE FAST
I don't want to rabbit on about this all day, but there seems to be a lot of supply in CGC 9.8 and 9.6, and prices have softened.
An all-time high of $31,000 for a 9.8 two years ago, and the most recent sale stopped just shy of $20K.
My grade of 9.0 returned 15 percent.
IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:
Here's the bottom line.
I bought the collected edition of Yusagi Yojimbo for my son for Christmas last year. It's over 1,000 pages long!
Who'd have thought that a samurai rabbit would catch on?
But Albedo 2 is one of THE hottest 1980s comic books.
Owning one is not going to be a cheap investment. It's similar to buying a copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1. Expensive, but probably a good idea.
Lots of grades are hard to read, but our recommendation is CGC 9.0.
The 9.8 sale puts Albedo 2 right up there among the giants of Copper Age comic book collecting. The next 9.8 to sell will be VERY interesting.
