Default Difference in value between 9.6 and 9.8

I'm fairly new to graded comics and was wondering the whats the difference in value between a graded 9.6 and 9.8 comic. I know it will vary depending on comic but is there a basic estimate or percent equation one can use to deduce what a 9.6 is worth is the 9.8 is worth $XXX?

I'd say a 9.6 is worth about 50% to 75% of a 9.8.

It's like all in your mind man, there is virtually no difference in quality but about 50% in value.

agree---my 9.8's are truly 9.4's nm+, i guess. Its a ridiculous premium for modern books. Older books are worthy of a premium, but that premium is totally off and subjective. Buy the book, not the grade.

Do 9.9's and 10.0's even truly exist (I know they do, but wonder if they're "gift grades" given with bias as favors to certain submitters), since they're almost non-existent in discussions.

I think they just throw those in once in a while to encourage people to sub books. Sorta like buying a scratcher.

Honestly, not much. Probably undervalued. I rather buy 9.6s and buy more comics then 1 9.8

The difference in price also factors in with how many are under census.
ASM 301 is the perfect example that there are not many 9.8s around so that price will be a premium compared to a 9.6

Exactly, plus the difficulty in obtaining a 9.8 grade on the book. A recent example would be Teen Titan #12 by DC. Most were printed with defects which are making 9.8 grades nearly impossible. Even with pressing I'm having difficulty hitting 9.8's on these, and judging from how many 9.8's are out there, I'm not the only one, so a 9.8 on this book will pull in a premium over a 9.6 as the 9.6 is more common. There is no percentage or known multiplier, there are other factors that help determine value like mentioned above, as well as scarcity of book and demand.

I buy older issues in lower grades mainly for the cbcs or cgc protection. Newer books I buy in 9.6 and save a bunch of $$$. I have multiples of the same book in 9.6 and 9.8 grades that are virtually identical.

Many times it's an issue not external to the eye that makes it a 9.6, so aesthetically it still looks 9.8 in the case
