Checked Tig Fromm off my list today. After watching paint rubbed, no staff or coin loose versions sell for $100+ on ebay and complete loose ones sell for closer to $175 I decided to jump on one at Brianstoys that I've had my eyes on for a while. It was right in the middle of those as far as price. AFA graded carded version. C50 B70 F80. I thought it was a steal of a price. Not sure why it lasted. At $150 (-$15 w/ coupon so $135) it was a little more than I wanted to spend on a loose Tig Fromm which is what I was expecting to own some day, but I sold some sports cards I decided I could let go in place of this and am happy I did so. Cool to have one carded.
I know AFA is not everyone's favorite, but it can't be that hard to bust open one of those cases. Again just surprised it was that price. Obviously the card and bubble aren't great, but it's just a couple creases and dent to the lower right of bubble. The figure, staff and coin alone are worth that (again if the recent ebay auctions I've watched are a good judge). So needless to say I'm excited about it.
Sorry to make a short story long.
