"The liberty of any person to own a military style assault weapon and a high-capacity magazine and keep them in their home is second to the right of my son to his life." - David Wheeler, father of Newtown shooting victim.
I was posting here when you were in diapers.
Wow, it's been awhile since we've had a post in this long-running Centaur thread!
Anyways, I was flipping through the new OS guide and noticed that Funny Picture Stories #7 has been broken out in the guide from its surrounding issues. I actually went back to last year's guide and it seem that this was when the breakout was done. I am always way behind the times!
Does any of the Centaur experts here know anything about this book besides the fact that it has a racial humour theme cover? Is it really a tough book to find since Overstreet is now denoting it as a "rare" book in the price guide?
I am totally shocked at the price movement on this book as it has really shot up the Centaur charts in a short period of time. The 2010 guide showed a 60% increase from $1,250 up to $2,000 when it was broken out. This has now been followed up by a further 40% price increase from $2,000 up to $2,800. This amounts to an overall price increase of 124% over a short 2-year time period.
Is there another Centaur book or even any other GA to show this type of increase in guide price during this same time period? The only one that I can think of is 'Tec #27 which is also over 100%, but this had some highly publicized solid sales behind it.
Anybody aware of any documented sales for this Funny Picture Stories or is this another relatively unknown (keep quiet until I get one) and impossible Centaur book that would blow the price guide out of the water similar to Amazing Man #26 which is only denoted as "scarce" in the guide?
