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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
