Golden Apple 10th Anniversary cards
Hi,

I was wondering if anybody has information about these cards? I just happened to see on on ebay because I was looking for something else with the same name: "Groo", he happened to be on card #12.

Golden Apple if I am correct is a comic shop in the Los Angeles area.

So how big are these cards? They are supposed to be oversized? Also do any of you guys know who is on the others?

Thanks,
David

They are somewhat oversized apparently, 4.25" X 5.5"

I don't have any of my own but didn't like to see your post go unheeded for so long.

Here's a partial checklist from an auction from 4 years ago, not one of mine.

They don't surface often, it seems, so good luck!

Number 4 HAWK & DOVE by LIEFELD & KESEL

Number 5 BATMAN AND STARFIRE by CHUCK PATTON

Number 6 BETTY PAGE by DAVE STEVENS

Number 7 THE MAZE AGENCY by ADAM HUGHES

Number 8 SCOTT SHAW & FRIENDS by SCOTT SHAW

Number 9 USAGI YOJIMBO by STAN SAKAI

Number 10 FLAMING CARROT by BOB BURDEN

Number 12 GROO THE WANDERER by SERGIO ARAGONES

Number 16 MIGHTY MARVEL ANNIVERSARY GREETINGS by JOHN ROMITA, Sr.

I've been looking at some of these cards online for a couple of years. Unfortunately, sellers want a ton of money (as in $75-200 each) for them even though almost every one I've seen is less than Near-Mint - often with at least one damaged corner and/or creased. They have been fishing for the desperate even before the current card craze. They are uncommon but don't push for the Mint price for cards that might not even be Excellent. I've noticed that when they are offered in auctions, EX-NRMT cards actually sell for $10-30. I missed out on some recent auctions that appeared when I wasn't checking.

I would be careful if you're thinking of buying one because some of the ones I've seen appear to have been trimmed at the top and bottom borders at least. Keep in mind these cards were originally 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches and should not be smaller along either of those dimensions.

Here's an updated checklist (I still haven't seen three of the cards):

No. 1 "The Hernandez Brothers"
No. 2 "The Punisher by Jim Lee"
No. 3 "Matt Groening"
No. 4 "Hawk & Dove by Liefeld and Kesel"
No. 5 "Batman and Starfire by Chuck Patton"
No. 6 "Dave Stevens" (Betty Page art) sold for $16.27 w/ 5 bids on 3-8-21 and $15.75 w/3 bids on 2-6-21; one sold for less than $75 on 11-13-21 with a Best Offer so I'm guessing maybe $55-65?
No. 7 "The Maze Agency by Adam Hughes" - has sold for $10-20
No. 8 "Scott Shaw & Friends by Scott Shaw"
No. 9 "Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai"
No. 10 "Flaming Carrot by Bob Burden"
No. 11 "Batman by Denys Cowan"
No. 12 "Groo The Wanderer by Sergio Aragones" sold for $59.27 4-10-21,
No. 13 unknown
No. 14 "Golden Apple Graffiti Board" - has sold for about $60
No. 15 unknown
No. 16 "'Mighty Marvel Anniversary Greetings' by John Romita" - has sold for about $60; one sold for $225 on 11-12-21

Here's the No. 9 card:

Hi Promoking,

No, and as you know, these cards have wild price ranges. I've seen a #7 card sell for as little as $7 and the most I've seen any of them sell for is $225 for the #16. Nearly all the ones I've seen for sale would be graded less than NM. Usually, there's at least one creased/worn corner and a couple of nicks along the edges but a card like that can still go for $50 or more. That tells me that they have become rare and those who have been looking for particular ones will overlook dings to get an otherwise decent example. Sellers have been trying to get between $150-300 each online but I've seen one actually sell for more than $100 just once.

The link says that the Punisher card sold 9 years ago in February 2013.

But it won't tell me the price unless you pay $11.99
