Well don't get confused with the foil edition either. I think the book is on the ascendency. My only problem is I live in Canada and import charges are steep

Thanks for the heads up!. Me too; I'm Burlington, ON. EBay's Global Shipping Program is a HUGH pain ...

Also want this book in my life :) I can only get it in a 9.6, 2 different LCS have a 9.6 copy, one for equivalent of $180 and the other at $232. I have also passed on 2 seperate sales, the $180 was at 10% off about 2 weeks ago and the one for $232 was at 35% off for yesterday. I just can't seem to pull the trigger even though I want this in the collection, maybe Santa will surprised me haha. Nice win.

FINALLY ( after 3 months of buying and sending back About 8-10! ) got this book ( for me / keeper ) from an eBay seller, who got it at the d23 Convention....  and packed it safely and without damage!  I’m telling you guys and gals, the bagged NM+ copies are rare — not because they didn’t print enough — but because of all the damaged ( during shipping ) copies being sold on eBay by non-comic collectors, and their HORRIBLE packaging....

Do you realize that these eBay sellers are probably not too happy with you? They're eating a 3% PayPal fee...they may block you from buying... just a heads up :foryou:

I get the feeling you like blowing money...alot of money....on "hot" "hyped" modern books, without a grasp on how the modern market works.

@SecondBlight , did you ever think .......... ( that should keep him in bed for the next 4 days with a migraine :gossip: )

For the rest of you .... familiar with the ‘iceberg theory’? You ONLY see the 10% above water - if you saw the other 90%, an iceberg would take on a completely different size, shape, SOPHISTICATION and complexity. A peak at me “below the water line”. I collect ( in part / with passion! ) factory sealed Comics, and Sportscards - all either key issues, Rookies, Origins, etc etc - all with limited / preferably  loooooow production numbers. Over time, this population of sealed items will ALWAYS get smaller, as Collectors can’t wait to tear open that packaging, and grade those items. Well... you can open a sealed bag to grade a comic, but you can never “ungrade” it, and seal it back in the bag! Now... I ALSO collect some pretty sweet, non-bagged, KEY Moderns that I DON’T post here — only post a small percentage ~~ iceberg!
Pics- some of my recent “factory sealed” eBay purchases ...
