The market for high grade Duck books is getting downright bizarre. Comiclink just listed a WDCS 43 9.4 that sold for roughly 13x guide in 2007. The owner must sure have loved that book when he bought it.

\:o


maybe he ended up with an upgrade or a duplicate? \(shrug\) how does the current listing price compare to the 2007 price?


I hope so. There are many other books listed that sold for record prices in 2006 and 2007, though. Hopefully this is not a fan who got discouraged after seeing Geppi's wholesale.

HAW! Makes you wonder how the poor guy chews his ambrosia in the afterlife!
Great piece of Barks memorabilia. I'm surprised that it didn't sell for more.

(The auction title really did make me wonder what I was going to see.)

Picked up this D Duck #43 1955 not too long ago. Its not a Barks....but its still a really good story and art. The last story art isn't too hot though. It must be tough to be known as......."Not Barks"

Geppi still has the remainder of the higher graded Crescent City run and who knows how many other sets of file copies he may be waiting to unload. It would be really nice if he would clarify this publicly since, right now, a few of us who have been bidding high multiples for these books don't really know what to think. Investing in subprime securities is starting to look like an interesting alternative...
Do you really expect him to let loose with that information? The only reason he has to reveal it would be if he does NOT have multiple high grade copies. Otherwise, one can infer the alternative from any silence. It goes back to tth's point. It's a huge amount of HG Ducks coming to market at one time. I'll be watching to see how they do.


Hi, I've been catching up on this thread and reading comments from some of the more opinionated posters on this issue. I would like to acquire an issue or two (or three) of those amazing High Grade WDCS books that Heritage has coming up. Obviously it will take multiples of guide to win those higher grade examples but like anyone who will be bidding, the dilemma is fearing that other high grade books from Geppis collection (or this mystery collector with the warehouse) will release others into the market IF indeed there are others.

A couple of questions, has there been a list complied (I know that Moondog mentioned that he would post a list, was this ever posted) ? And regardless of the multiples of these books, what is the opinion of those out there whether the ones listed now at Heritage are the highest OR are the highest examples being held until the lower grade ones sell (which makes the most sense for the owner(s) of these high grade books as to max-out, dollar wise …. i.e. sell the 9.2’s first while they are the current highest and then wait a few auctions, grade the better batch next and then sell those 9.4’s which would then be the highest).

Appreciate any thoughts on this …Thanks, Hank

Imagine an allegory that juxtaposes incongruous emotions while an uncomfortable transfusion of the ideas seeps back and forth between them... Never mind. I'll imagine it for you.
