Why NYX 3 is a Hot Comic

2019 MARKET UPDATE: CGC 9.8 HAS SHOWN GAINS

If you took my advice and held this book last year in CGC 9.8, then you did okay. Other grades, not so much.

IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 9.8 2018 $825
  • LAST SALE $950
  • PERCENT CHANGE +15%

There are simply too many modern books around to let your standards slip. People rushing in at CGC 9.4 or 9.2 are the ones who have the most to lose.

Recent sales:

  • CGC 9.8 $950
  • CGC 9.6 $575
  • CGC 9.4 $375
  • CGC 9.2 $350
  • CGC 9.0 $400 (!!!) More than 9.2 AND 9.4!
  • CGC 8.5 $350 (!!) That is really a dumb investment
  • CGC 7.5 $265 (!) You have got to be kidding me, basically a modern rag

2018 MARKET UPDATE: HOLDING WELL, ONE FOR THE FUTURE

This book has bucked the trend of movie-out, prices-down. So we are confidently predicting a solid HOLD.

It's still currently more valuable than New Mutants #98, which is hardly surprising -- NYX #3 is much rarer.

Don't buy below 9.4. Recent sales:

  • CGC 9.8 $825
  • CGC 9.6 $550
  • CGC 9.4 $500
  • CGC 9.2 $355
  • CGC 9.0 $350
  • CGC 7.5 $195

2017 MARKET UPDATE:

(SPOILER ALERT!) With the death of Wolverine in the Logan movie, all eyes are on X-23 as the future star of the Wolverine franchise.

As expected, prices went crazy just before the movie came out. But unexpectedly, sales have continued to be strong, as speculation of X-23 in future movies is rife. Still a good time to invest? We believe so.

  • CGC 9.9: $4,500
  • CGC 9.8 $780
  • CGC 9.6 $480
  • CGC 9.0 $370
  • CGC 7.5 $270

Everything Wolverine is red hot now. Several of the books on the Hot 100 list are key Wolverine comic books, including the following:

Incredible Hulk #180

Incredible Hulk #181

Giant-Size X-Men #1

NYX #3 is definitely among the most in-demand modern books. It's fascinating to see what happens to prices of relatively common books like this when demand goes crazy.

Insist on a CGC 9.8 with white pages, ignore all the crazy stuff that's hard to price like CGC Signature Series, and you should do well over time.
