Why Albedo 2 is a Hot Comic

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.

Recent sales:

  • 9.8 $19,800
  • 9.4 $10,000
  • 9.2 $7,900
  • 9.0 $5,500
  • 8.5 $6,200 (!!)
  • 8.0 $6,500(!!)
  • 7.5 $3,050

IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 9.0 2020 $4,775
  • LAST SALE $5,500
  • PERCENT CHANGE +15%

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.
