How much are First Print TMNT #1 worth?

Hey am not looking to buy or sell here, but since it is specifically about comics I thought I post here.

Anyways what are graded first prints worth? I have a chance to buy a graded 8.5 copy and was wondering how much I should pay for it. Thanks in advance!

Prices for TMNT #1 1st printing are all over the place and it's subjective to multiple factors. Pretty hard to nail down exact value / pricing. However, I'd put a CGC 9.0 at around $8k. An 8.5 would likely be around $7500 and an 8.0 around $7k.

Here are some recent sales to show you the wide disparity in prices for pretty much the exact same grade.
- TMNT #1 CGC 8.5 $7800
- TMNT #1 CGC 8.0 $9550
- TMNT #1 CGC 8.0 $6500

I think page quality might factor in too. Some collectors will pay a premium for "white" pages. Luckily the one you're being offered is graded. That takes away a lot of the guesswork.

Wow, I remember a time where TMNT #1 was around $800 and it seemed a lot to me!

Well I offered a little below that bc I am ignorant of pricing with this book. Say a prayer for me fellas that he takes it bc I don't want to dish out 7.5k for a 8.5 copy

Thanks for the responses guys!
