AFA 95- still overpriced though

Postby TrisCompany » Sun Jan 08, 2017 5:48 pm

I haven't seen many straight 95 subs?

Still overpriced though.

If grading was consistent I could see why people would pay a premium for straight 95s, but the problem is anything above "C9" is a complete lottery and can grade anything from 80-95. It looks no better than all the other 80s and 85s on eBay for a quarter of the price.

It won't sell for anything like that price. Thing is even collectors who chase numbers wouldn't even won't it because it wouldent match all there other AFA 90's. :roll:

Maybe Zach Tann will buy it, then he can sell it "fresh back from grading" for $6000 on Facebook

Am I the only one thinking that this should have been an 85 grade, but the guy working at AFA mistakenly pressed the number 9 instead?
Maybe my eyes aren't what they use to be, but I'm sure I can see some minor border wear, so how on earth did it get an 95?
Also, how did Robbie come up with this number for an asking price? Surely it's a £250 MOC, maybe £300 in that condition.

I reckon you could be right, another classic from AFA! :lol:

I bet the dollar signs lit up in the seller's eyes when he opened the packaging up and saw 95s. Anybody ever seen a 95 before ? or do we think this was a genuine mistake?

I'm not sure now I've looked the serial number up on toygrader.com and it was graded in 2004. There have been a couple AfA 95's on eBay for about 4 years but silly asking price. Not sure if they are still on, one is a Lando General POTF I think.

Does that mean AFA 100 is possible?
