Investment Potential and Analysis of Star Wars 1-10, 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A

Investment Potential and Analysis of Star Wars 1-10, 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A

The first Table presents the Bias Score for 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. 

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,  for the first 3 issues with the A variant. Note Issue 4 A has a negative B Score.

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 and red stained issues are a negative and invite a non-focus in only investments

We then compare those SLN numbers and generate a difference number we call the DF. Finally add the I and O SLN numbers together (total) and determine the %DF number for each issue. Green staining is good (Higher Bias) and Grey and Red are issues that are not good for an investment focus. This data stream is more liberal in the rigor and you get the best case for an issue,

Almost all issues are highlighted here except for 4A?

The deepest level of analysis we developed is the ADF number (average difference between the I/O worlds) of each issue at each grade. I denote a high I Bias with the orange $.

Lime green stained issues are rated I Biased in all grades or at least 9.4 and 8. Dark green stained issues are only biased at the 9.4 grade while the other grades are overbought relative to the professional investor’s desires.

Table 3 is the stricter data stream and highlights both the issue and grade. We calculate the average difference (ADF) in Issue Bias between the Insider and Outsiders groups.  Lime Green are issues that are I Biased at least 9.4 and 8 grades (High Bias). (Orange $). The dark green issues are support with a Bias in 9.4 grade only. The other issues are to be avoided.

The Issue is that the regular number 1 is worthy of investment focus at the 9.4 grade only. The variations of 1,2,3, and even 4A are worthy of your focus as well. 4A is certainly a surprising issue based on the mixed signals!.

Table 4 is the Score Card information for each issue at the 3 data streams. This allows a top down view across the data streams. We denote the issues supported in all three data streams with a Lime Green staining. Dark Green has only 2 data streams support and yellow issues are supported in one data stream only. 

So as before its 1, 1A, 2A, and 3A. That is it.

Table 5 is the last bit of data, the Scaled Desire Ranking. I have grouped 1356 issues of comics that I have covered and developed scaled desire rankings. The percentile that an issue occupies gets wonderful insight into true value between titles. So we position our title and its key issues in context. A score of 99 means that comic issue is desired at the highest level while 1 percentile is the lowest desired issue.

Amazing desire rankings!. 1,2,3A in the 93 percentile vs top comics like FF, Avengers, Early ASM etc!
So given the price of the early marvels, I am think these are worth the expense investment. My data suggest room to go up!. Given the new movie another generation will be focused on Star Wars when they are in their 30/40s and can invest in their childhoods. So in 2030-40 is the sell time-frame if you mortgage you house to get one. I would have to will it to my children for their college fund then!
