Why (Uncanny) X Men 94 is a Hot Comic

2019 MARKET UPDATE: A TOUGH BOOK TO CALL

Everything to do with Wolverine was scorching hot last year, not least Incredible Hulk #181, which is closely related to this issue.

Let's look at my grade pick and then move on to the trouble with X-Men #94.

IF YOU BOUGHT MY RECOMMENDED GRADE LAST YEAR:

Here's the bottom line.

  • CGC 9.0 2018 $665
  • LAST SALE $810
  • PERCENT CHANGE +21%

This book is really, really hard to get a handle on though. Let me give you an example. Of three reported sales in CGC 9.8 last year, here were the results:

  • August 2018 $9,000
  • October 2018 $12,000
  • November 2018 $18,000 (three days after Stan Lee died)

That is clearly insane, and probably unsustainable. Other grades show not nearly the same heat as Hulk 181, with a more gentle increase across the board.

I would hold your 9.0 if you still have it. I am not really excited about this book going forward.

Recent sales:

  • CGC 9.8 $18,000
  • CGC 9.6 $3,750
  • CGC 9.4 $1,975
  • CGC 9.2 $1,305
  • CGC 9.0 $810
  • CGC 8.5 $700
  • CGC 8.0 $500
  • CGC 7.0 $330
  • CGC 6.0 $290

2018 MARKET UPDATE: NEW RECORDS BEING SET IN HIGH GRADE

Some softening is being seen at CGC 9.8 -- there are plenty of books available -- but other grades are looking strong.

Low grades are also doing well. Recent sales:

  • CGC 9.8 $11,600
  • CGC 9.6 $2,800
  • CGC 9.4 $2,400
  • CGC 9.2 $1,350
  • CGC 9.0 $665
  • CGC 8.5 $430
  • CGC 8.0 $425
  • CGC 7.0 $305
  • CGC 6.0 $265

2017 MARKET UPDATE: NEW TO THE LIST!

At the top end of the market, Uncanny X-Men #94 has broken out of the holding pattern past the $10,000 mark. You'd have made 50 percent if you bought one two years ago!

Of course, we're all richer in hindsight. As the prices below show, there is plenty of support for this book from people who don't have five figures to drop on a comic book.

We recommend a CGC 9.0. Note that for another couple of hundred bucks, you can afford a 9.2.

  • CGC 9.8 $14,000
  • CGC 9.6 $3,550
  • CGC 9.4 $2,100
  • CGC 9.2 $1,000
  • CGC 9.0 $800
  • CGC 8.5 $590
  • CGC 8.0 $465
  • CGC 7.0 $370
  • CGC 6.0 $200
