2022 MARKET UPDATE: JUGGERNAUT ROLLING SLOWER
So it was a new entry on the 2021 Hot list, and then immediately the pressure got too much?!
Whatever. This book was crazy hot, and now it's not. There are some impressive prices amongst the downward momentum, notably the CGC 9.4 sale for $24,110 and $15,000 for a 9.2.
CGC 0.5 entry price is $225.
Juggernaut is one of the more popular members of the early X-Men team.
Yes, the character has been "done" in the second Deadpool movie, but there is plenty of scope for a more serious look at Juggernaut in the future.
Looking at prices of this book, it's even possible to make the case that X-Men 12 is still actually an under-valued comic book.
Published in 1965, it's still possible to pick up a VF-NM for around $3K. That seems way too cheap for such an important Silver Age first appearance issue.
What a strange book this is.
You can buy a CGC 8.0 for less than $2,000. A CGC 9.6 sold for $13,000 in the past year. A CGC 9.0 sold in December 2020 for just $3,022.
But if you look lower down the grades, there is a ton of price compression, especially in the VG-FN range, which means prices in these middle grades can only move up.
That will in turn push up the VF and higher grades. It's a good time to get on the bandwagon -- or rather the Juggernaut.
Another amazing (to me) price is $1,000 for a CGC 7.0. Especially as a 6.0 is just $100 less.
Truly this is a great time to be getting into this book.
One of my hottest picks for 2021 and beyond. I'm going to buy one.
