Have you seen what many of the early and rare TMNT comics and collected books are going for on eBay lately? I recently watched a TMNT Limited Edition hardcover get bid up to $300 within the first day (with 5 days still remaining) and, just today, one was listed with a starting bid of $1,000!! A TMNT #3 NYC Variant just sold for nearly $800 (ungraded)!
That early TMNT stuff just gets harder and harder to find and collectors are willing to pay a premium to get it. That’s good news if you are one of the lucky few that already own one of them. If you’re like me, it’s awesome to see high prices for comics you already own but it sucks to see them when you’re actually trying to acquire one for your collection.
Remember the early days of eBay where you could find this rare TMNT stuff for a song? I snagged a 1st print of TMNT #1 for $100. Picked up my TMNT #3 NYC Variant for half of that. Try doing that today.
