Ya exactly.  And just to clarify, when I bought RMA's maxx black back in 2008 I believe it was, it was a record sale.  I have no qualms about paying good money for the ashcans, but the asking prices on these 'test' books is sheer lunacy.  

I still think anyone asking over 100 bucks for a red or blue is crazy.

These are the times

I know I'm way late to see this, but first, congrats dude... good looking books.

If you don't mind me asking, what's the number on that Blue #1 - looks like it's written in the top left corner, but the angle of the photo makes it disappear.  Also, what's the grade on that Blue #3?

Wow!

Side note, that buyer's premium is a %@$*(& joke.  It should be capped, 20%!!

Agreed. Well, its beyond what I’m willing to pay now anyway. I was foolish to think I was going to snap this up for around 12k. Who the hell collects The Maxx anymore? With BP, the auction is over $17000 with a week to go.

Could be worse

I have to wait till Sam Kieth dies to get the OA for cover of the issue I want, and that's if he doesn't throw it away in the meantime 

Meanwhile I have to realistically save up a fortune to even think of having enough to buy it

Anyone into the trading card series?  I've read the 93 Topps foil inserts #5 and #6 are pretty tough to come by.  I'm still trying to complete the 97 Wildstorm insert sets as well but they're not too tough.

I do have the complete chase card set from that 93 run including both the mail-away redemption card and the Gone card. These images are not mine, I don’t have any pics of my cards.

I guess the #6 card isn't rare, I must have been mistaken.  The #5 is and there is a redemption auto card but it doesn't have any notification of authenticity.

These are not worth counterfeiting so I don’t think authenticity is an issue. These images are from current eBay listings if you want one. The prices seem high, I think I paid $200 for the set of redemption card and Gone card a few years ago.

Yup, I thought I understood this relatively small Maxx OA market.  I had it at 16k with BP. 

I'm pretty much giving up hope of owning any OA I want for Maxx

Does anyone know print runs for the 1996 Wildstirm Maxx cards factory sets?  They include the 90 base card set and both 9-card insert sets.

No idea, the card forum might know more
