If you go back through some of the forums (say 5-6 years ago) there was a notion, true at the time, that X-Men 94 was tougher than GSX 1. The census led credibility to this argument and for a time, say 18 months to 2 years there was a real upswing in prices. Buuuuuut as other people have posted in this thread, supply started to catch up, copies began to get 'the treatment' and the prices have correspondingly come down.
Very traditional market forces at play in regard to X-Men 94. In my personal instance I was lucky enough to resist the temptation to upgrade my 8.5 copy when 9.2s and up were and I will probably pick up a 9.4 this year where in the mid-2000s I was looking at a 9.0 or 9.2.
