As we start out, astute collectors will quickly notice that the prices for grades above 9.2 are the same as the prices for 9.2. Clearly, this does not reflect the market.
For those of you familiar with print version of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, you already know we have not previously supplied those prices as they were simply considered too volatile to establish in an annual publication (As several collectors have good naturedly put it, “The madness begins at 9.4!”).
Here on Overstreet Access, however, this will not be the case.
Since our name is Overstreet, though, we’ll be doing it right rather than doing it fast.
The Guide has a tremendous history of being accurate over the long haul, and we’re not trading away that for some quick fix. We’re not going to put up prices just to have them there, only to have them be wrong. You deserve better, and you’re going to get it.
Over the days, weeks, and months ahead, though, Overstreet Access will indeed begin supplying updated prices for grades 9.4 and higher. In fact, we will have a significant number of comics priced in those grades by October 26.
In fact, some prices will be updated even before that. And when they are updated, the estimated values of those comics in your collection will automatically update as well.
There’s already an incredible amount of research going on, and we look forward to sharing the results of that number crunching with you here.
