Over '40' listed 1 in 25 limited edition variants.

Nice.

Well, if there are only 25 of these made and there are 40 listed on ebay then it looks like someone is listing something that they don't actually have.

Or it could be that some are listed twice, or that some are not the same thing - a blank variant - or whatever.

This is silly. I don't see anything that would make this "instant collectible" actually worth more than cover price.

Some of the variants they are selling look like regular covers. :robotfrustrated:

You misunderstand. A "1 in 25 variant" means you get one variant copy for every 25 regular copies you order. There are way more than 40 of these out there.

Well I see them advertised on ebay as 1/25 and numbered like 12/25 so I assumed that there was only 25. Obviously if there are 1 in 25 then there are lots of em. Which makes my point stronger. Not worth more than cover price, and once read even less.

I looked quick but didn't find what you're talking about. Got a link to the "numbered 12/25" auction? Could just be a dirtbag seller using a slimy tactic.

 

If you search "Harley Quinn 1:25" you'll see what I'm talking about, there's plenty of them out there. Variant collectors are the biggest idiots in the hobby.

1/25 is the ratio.

 

For every 25 of the regular cover retailers can order 1 variant.

I never knew that's what 1/25 meant. lol

I figured it meant 1 out of 25 copies worldwide.

Glad I posted this.

Those 1 per store owner variants are getting pretty played out for me as well.

I see them sell for hundreds etc opening day on certin books, but there are 'tons' of stores via physical outlets and online.

It just pays to wait most times.

 

Thanks again guys.

Yes but sometimes it doesn't. One per retailer books are not ones to let the market decide for you later.
