Investment Potential and Analysis of Avengers Annuals_Specials_Giant Size

Investment Potential and Analysis of Avengers Annuals_Specials_Giant SizeThe first Table presents theBias Scorefor all the issues. Bias scores show which issues are being bought by the Insiders (Pros) vs. the Outsiders (Fans Less Serious). The concept of my approach is to focus on the issues being bought BULLISHLY by the investors.
We developed an analysis of data to quantify this Bias (B Score). We mark the issues with the highest Bias with Lime Green followed by a Dark Green staining for issues with a lesser but definite Bias.
Table 2 data deals with another data stream on comic-book issues. This run’s issues are looked at 3 grades 9.4, 8 and 6. The changes in bias between the different grades are calculated and the SLN numbers were born. The SLN numbers look into each “world” of the I vs. O bias data.  This data has shown historically to be the most liberal and establishes the investment potential across the grades of 9.4, 8 and 6. Very quickly, the green stained are positive issues…

Special__Quick hit Post. Investing in Comics is not just about the price

So here are factors that I have thought about in my investment journey.
1) Blocks of time. If you do not have sufficient time to spend and focus on the deals at LCS, CONs, Auctions, Ebay etc. DON'T! 

2) On Ebay look at the new listings and focus on those. Use the notes to set price points (see previous post). As you look then, just delete those listings that are near your price points. Move on.

3) On Ebay, use broad search terms over titles as people can incorrectly spell titles.

4) Bankroll. Sell off unwanted items. Have a garage sale and come up with cash.

5) Raw vs Slabbed Books! I would only focus on one type in your investment block of time (Session)

6) Keep up with profits in your sessions. If you buy below the issues's average then you have made money (virtual of course)

7) School yourself in deal-making face to face (LCS or CONs). Plenty of resources to read about closing deals etc.

8) Psychological Strength. Are you weak? Be honest. Impulsive? Then I would not do dea…

SGT FURY is certainly a interesting run. It was come into its own as the Avengers movies have highlight Nick Fury. Issue 1 to 3 are highly Biased! Note the SGT FURY #1 with a B Score of 21531! the other 2 are 2563 and 2801!. Even the issues of 4 to 8, 10 and 15 are also Biased and are a focus for investments!

Issue 1 is the beginning and introduces the howling commandos including Nick Fury!. Issue 3 has Nazi soldiers and continues the tough war theme. Issue 10 has them fighting t…

The Star Wars early issues are overshadowed by the 35 cent variations as those issues are  denoted by the A symbol. 

The Star Wars #1 35 cent variant has been one of the most valuable and sought after comic books of the Bronze Age for several years.

These were in very limited distribution, and although the exact numbers aren’t known, the estimate is about 1500 copies for issue 1. 

So the B Scores are phemonal for the A issues here. B Scores of 8027,  652,  2221,  f…

We see the main issue is issue 1 the first appearance of the Defenders but two story Arcs preceded the Defenders. They were the first ARC in Doctor Strange #183 (Nov. 1969), Sub-Mariner #22 (Feb. 1970), The Incredible Hulk #126 (April 1970)  and the second Arc found in Sub-mariner #34 and 35. These ARCs are thought to be the beginnings for the Defenders!

Issue 1 has a Good B Score of 249, issue 3 ( the last Defenders story here) has a score of 59 and Issue 5 ha…
