2018 MARKET UPDATE: CABLE STILL HASN'T CLOSED THE GAP ON DEADPOOL
Prices of this 1990 book are back on the rise, with his movie appearance coming up in the next few months.
You're still looking at a big price gap between New Mutants #98 and this book. The gap has closed to around $230. Whether Cable is ever as big a deal remains to be seen.
Recent sales show prices increased about 10 percent last year:
2017 MARKET UPDATE:
We wrongly predicted that Cable would be as hot as Deadpool by Christmas 2016. In fact, that's not FAR from the truth, as both were as cold as Rudolph's nutsack once the movie had come and gone.
Both books are massive fallers on this year's Hot 100. But both are showing recent signs of life, and we predict that both will be bouncing around at the top of the list, again, when the second movie is released.
Deadpool is red hot right now, as you'd expect, with the movie still in theaters and copies of New Mutants #98 (also on the Hot 100) changing hands faster than any other book on the planet.
Cable's first appearance as a baby in Uncanny X-Men #201 is not super-valuable, but still hot property relative to other issues of the era.
But the real money is piling into New Mutants #87. The cherry-red cover is vulnerable to showing wear, so finding super-high grade copies is tough. Stick to CGC 9.8 with white pages.
This book has doubled in price in two years, largely because Cable has been confirmed as co-star in the Deadpool sequel. We still see plenty of upside.
