Item Description

Welcome to thecomicexchange. I am a private collector who began collecting comics in November 1984. Most of my books were purchased at cover price and have been in my personal collection for 25 years. All other books were purchased as back issues sometime between November 1984 and 1991. All books were meticulously selected and have been kept in acid-free bags with cardboard backings and stored in covered boxes to protect against moisture and fading. All CGC-graded books will start at my cost into the book and have a reserve price. All ungraded books will start at cover price with no reserve. I intend to liquidate my entire collection of 2000 books spanning the following titles: The Uncanny X-Men, X-Men, The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Spawn, Batman, & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.*** With the next movie scheduled for a June 6, 2014 release, the demand for this book will only increase: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1291150/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1  On Jul-29-13 at 18:45:42 PDT, seller added the following information:For those without access to the CGC Census, there are currently 508 TMNT #3 that have been graded (453 standard & 55 variant). Of this total 87 have received a grade of 9.8 and no 9.9 or 10.0 is known to exist. While this is nearly 20% of the total census population for this issue, by comparison it is far more rare than a 9.8 Wolverine Limited Series #1 (1719 out of 7576). In other words, you will be 20 times less likely to see this book up for auction than a Wolverine #1 of the same grade. All information is current as of 07/29/2013 by Certified Guaranty Company, LLC.
