DROPPED OUT OF LIST
2022 MARKET REPORT: HIGHER THAN LAST YEAR, BUT PROFIT TAKING BRINGING DOWN THE SURFER
You'll wish you sold in November last year, as prices since then are receding in all grades on this book.
It's clinging to the hot list by the silver toenails of Norid Radd.

2021 MARKET REPORT: HIGH GRADE SURFS THE WAVE OF OPTIMISM
The leaky MCU rumor mill has all but confirmed that the FF Homecoming movie will feature the Silver Surfer.
This book is red-hot this year! Almost every grade, especially above VF, is returning spectacularly.
IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:
Here's the bottom line.
2020 MARKET REPORT: MOVIE RUMORS ARE SOLIDIFYING
We still haven't got the final nod on the Fantastic Four movie reboot, but it must be happening.
There is simply too much speculation around the important Silver Surfer comic books. Silver Surfer 1 has benefited from this, with strong sales above FN.
2019 MARKET REPORT: NEW ENTRY ON THE 100 HOT COMICS LIST!
Silver Surfer 1 has always been popular. The recent surge of interest in Fantastic Four comic books in general, and Silver Surfer comics in particular, is too powerful and sustained to be purely speculation.
There is a leak in Marvel Studios, and it's got out that FF will be 'coming home' like Spider-Man did. I'll eat my hat if the Herald of Galactus isn't in the movie.
There are tons of comics which I could include in this list. I had to draw the line at FF#48, for example, though I do feature #49 and #50 on the same page. FF#72 is also a classic Silver Surfer cover.
I did include Silver Surfer #4 elsewhere on this list, but the origin issue is pretty hot right now and you ought to own a copy ASAP.
This book feels like a long-term hold to me. It will never go out of style.
The Marvel 'squarebound' annual sized books like this one are really tough to find in VF or higher. That means they command a significant premium when they come to market.
Prices of this issue have risen across the board. Don't be tempted to go too low. The average copy we receive falls in the 3.5 to 5.0 range, and spine splitting is common.
These larger squarebound books look awful with lots of spine stress, and their thick, glossy covers are not kind to hard corner creases.
There is little significant difference in price between 8.0 and 8.5, so that is where I would put my money. Half a grade isn't much, but it is better than nothing.
CGC 7.5 looks like a decent bet if you don't have the extra $500 to spare, and 6.5s are selling for about the same price as 6.0s.
Here are the most recent sales.
