    I have one listed on ebay right now for $450 with a buy it now for $500. It has the Tale of Teela Comic. It is priced low to try and move it, there is an AFA 85 one listed for $1,250 a few months ago so based it on that.

    No way your the only person here with an opinion. Anyone else? Could it go for $350 or maybe $600? I mean it is an 8 back right?

    An AFA rating only means something to the people who think it means something. This discussion has taken place here before.

    There is nothing official or remotely professional about the AFA grading system. It is a private company who display no credentials or proof of expertise on their website. They've also been known to change their unchangeable grading system.

    Nothing is worth an extra $1000 just because it's in a hard case.

    Ok, then with that said, what is the going rate for a teela 8 back in about c-8 condition with yellow bubble?

    A picture of the figure will help a lot to answer your question.

    It's arguable how much extra worth a figure has if graded by AFA but IMO it's unquestionable that a graded figure it's more worthy than a figure which has not been graded.

    Sorry, I have to respectfully disagree. If the grading were by a recognised body with expertise then maybe, but not when it's by a private company with no credentials just using their own method.
