It is easy to get carried away during the holiday seasons. When people spot the perfect gift they sometimes can get dialed in on obtaining it and will go to any length to add it to their stash (even if the gift is for said buyer themselves). Well, the bidding on Friday night's auction for a CGC 9.8 copy of Chew #1 appears to fit that mold.
This copy has the signatures of writer John Layman and artist Rob Guillory making it the ultimate authenticated edition.
How big was the price tag on this delectable morsel? Menu price was market value at $909.97.
The previous high for a CGC 9.8 copy of Chew #1 until tonight had been $450, reached earlier this month, with one signed by Layman going for $760 in September. With this series only continuing to gain in popularity, and the show from Showtime still in the works, prices like this could become the new norm. With 20 total bids, more than one person ordered the lobster and caviar tonight.
I have no intention of selling mine, but it is nice to see that I can pay my mortgage with it if I wanted.
