And then there was the time the Mike of 1993 already priced a comic for the Mike of 2013.

This showed up in a collection on Friday…a copy of the Venom: Deathtrap The Vault one-shot, complete with our store’s old pricetag with the price in my handwriting. And now, according to the most recent Overstreet price guide, a copy of this comic is today worth a whole $7.00!

Surprisingly, I don’t often see old comics (and I hate calling this particular comic “old,” but it is from twenty years ago) come back into the shop with our original price tags still on them, but I have been to other shops out of town and seen my writing on price stickers that the other shop just left on there (with the “store name” bit of the sticker removed at the perforation). “Well, whoever priced this comic is clearly wise and all-knowing in the ways of comics retail. We shall honor his magnificence by leaving his price tag as is!”
