Have you made $160,000 profit since 2009? Here is an example of why I collect comics. This screen shot is taken from comicbookrealm. Your $21,000 comic is now worth over $180,000, not a bad profit in 8 years. This book is available on ebay (graded at 3.5) and is currently at $1000. Even in this low grad condition, this book should sell for over $20,000!
