|Hello everyone I just picked this up and I am not sure if this variant is worth any more than the regular issue. Any responses would be appreciated. Here is the link for the video where you can see it.

|Some people specifically collect Mark Jewelers Inserts. I would think it would be worth a little more.|

|I think it'd be worth signifigantly more actually, anywhere from $100-$300 over a regular 9.8.
I'd check GoCollect and GPA for recorded sales of the book in 9.8.

|My Amazing Spider-man run from issues 100-200 are ALL Mark Jeweler's inserts! I picked the collection up from a soldier on ebay a few years ago
Most people agree they aren't worth anymore than a regular comic issue. A small fraction are on the fence. The only difference was the insert and the book's location being near a military base or outpost of some sort. I also do not think it's limited to overseas. These were scattered across US bases as well. Collectors who hunt specifically for MJI are the ones who you'd want to sell/appease to if trying to squeeze a few extra pesos out of the deal imo brah

|In the video, RE: Dr. Strange comic... So lemme get this straight: a UPC symbol is "ugly" and takes away from the look of the cover, but a hideous signature or signatures in black sharpie ON TOP OF the art doesn't? LMAO!|

|I have a few Punishers with the jewelers ad, they don't seem to cost much more if at all

|My experience is most MJI collectors will pay a 10% or so premium for a common book in a Fine or better condition. I don't know if GPA breaks it down, but i'd be curious in the difference of an IM #55 or ASM #129 with and without the insert.
I like the MJI's even more than price variants and have little rationale as to why. I think it obviously adds a little bit to the provenance of a comic if anything. "This comic came from Fort Hood in Texas". Yahoo. I just find it interesting.

|I definitely find the MJI's interesting. While I wouldn't necessarily pay more for a MJI insert copy, if I were presented with two copies of the same issue - one with MJI and one without - I would absolutely go for the Mark Jewelers Insert copy first.
I liken it to car modifications. You wont necessarily get more money for the car but it will probably sell over a plain model first (assuming the proper audience of course)

|GPa does not identify if it's a mark jewelers edition. However if you check the Cgc bar code you will get the notation if it is the MJ. By looking at GPa a New Mutants 98 9.8 sold earlier in March for 1025.00 and it is a Cgc 9.8 Mark Jewelers variant. Likely the reason for the highest recorded sale for 2017. GPA does not track CBCS sales.|
