This Godless Communism (Treasure Chest Comics)

So I was just scrolling through my ComicBookRealm website seeing what might have gone up in value and I noticed a huge amount under profit. Checked to see that it was my Treasure Chest comics for the This Godless Communism run.

I had these on a back burner to try and get when I had the choice but wasn't actively seeking them out. (For the record, it is Volume 17 of Treasure Chest issues 2-20 evens only--so 10 comic books.) I went into my LCBS one day and they have them up behind the counter for sale as a set. All 10 for $60. I knew from just mild interest that some of them had been going for that for a single issue on eBay. So it took me about less than a second to pull the trigger on them.

Fast forward a few years and now the whole bunch (I graded them about a 6.0, so I'm talking that price not for mint) is worth $1,000. That's a nice profit. Especially for something I bought just because I thought they were a hilarious throw back to the red scare shit of my youth.

3. At the value they have now

I might actually get these graded and protected. Worth looking for. They are pretty unassuming--don't have the panache of a first appearance Black Panther (which is my next big purchase since we were "born" in the same month and year).

5. I don't do it to a lot of books, but when they get up there I do.

And these are at that point.
