Interesting. Are you 100% sure that it actually exists? I spent years searching high and low for a 2nd print sketch variant of “Wolverine and Jubilee” #1 after seeing the cover in a few different collecting apps/databases and eventually found out that it was just a fan-made mock-up.

Well, to answer my own question I see that this is indeed in the CGC census, although there’s 26 graded copies…super-scarce by Spidey standards. Best of luck finding one!

Good afternoon. My unicorn is ASM 546, Book Market Variant. I’ve never seen this book ever in person or on the bay for sale:

It does exist I found a beat up copy at a Flea market years ago and didn't know what it was at the time. I think I sold for $100 back then.

Its a book market variant. There dozens of them all pretty rare for the most part.
It was attempt by Marvel to get libraries among other places to carry trades. Several were books
that were considered classics that would sell better as trades. I never pass one up for sale I dont
care what title it is. Some day they will be like 35 cent variants to modern collectors and in some
cases already are. Exceptional rare in all cases. Ive never seen more then a few copies of any of them.
Some just dont have any demand except for completionists.

Is it a regular comic book, or was it in another form, e.g., hard cover format? I’m a completionist. Lol

My first time owning these

I saw those in another post of yours, I'd be super happy! I'm not even a big "Joe Fan" per se, but they were all the rage a time ago and I've truly noticed in real time how seldom I see them. I'm sure online is easy enough, but good pick up!

edit, they weren't cheap!!!?!

Not cheap but not as expensive as the online prices lol. No one sells these cheap. They’re tough to get. The McFarlane angle is big
