This is a question that is going to be asked by many collectors and speculators over the next several months with the Preacher AMC TV series premiering on May 22nd, 2016. The price of Preacher #1 has already shot up quite a bit. In January and February 2016 you could have purchased Preacher #1 CGC 9.6 for around $350 to $400. On March 30th, 2016 the price is $590. Expect it to go higher. The price of Preacher #1 CGC 9.6 will be close to $750 or higher by Memorial Day weekend.
If the TV show is a hit like most people are predicting you can expect Preacher #1 CGC 9.6 to get as high as $1500 and CGC 9.8 to be over $2000. Remember that The Walking Dead #1 CGC 9.6 is selling for over $1500 and there are many more of these available compared to Preacher #1.
There are only 430 Preacher #1 CGC 9.6 copies and 423 CGC 9.8 copies on census. The Walking Dead #1 CGC 9.6 has 737 copies on census and 826 CGC 9.8. Also note that Preacher #1 is eight years older than The Walking Dead #1 meaning there are fewer high grade copies available. Let’s put it this way, if you can get any Preacher #1 for under $1000 you will make money in the near future.
Show runners and directors are already talking about future seasons of Preacher so you know AMC loves this show. Buy your copies today and hold on to them and you will double and possibly triple your money in less than a year.
