Metal Aspen Variants?4220

Collector Zarbongo private msg quote post Address this user
So I'm thinking about picking up the Metal Aspen variants and wanted to get some opinions. Worth 100 for the set? Is the "printing defect" going to drive up collectibility or is it just BS hype? Thoughts overall about Metal and its appreciation in the future? Probability that I'll get a 9.6 or above? I realize there's no right answer. Just looking for opinions from the collecting community.

I picked up 2 sets of the 3 pack from the Aspen table here at Fan Expo Canada.

I likea few of these but im burnt out on variants and im starting to think the "some of our stock was messed up in shipping" is a way to make this seem more rare than it is. I remember they said the same about the harley quinn pink variants from dell otto.

The printer problem reduced the print run of the 3 pack to 750 and it sold out within hours of that news hitting. At this point, unless you can pick up some from a Con before Aspen runs out of their con stock the only option is the secondary market.

I also got two sets. They are already signed by Stegerwald, Snyder, and Capullo. I plan to add Glapion at NYCC.

There were some amazing variants at Capullos and Snyders table. Almost bought the Red Jock virgin, Tyler Kirkman, Tim Broadstreet, Gabriel Del Otto and Martina covers but alas I didn't not have enough money left overs

My impulse buy at the end of the Con were two of the Dell Otto virgin covers. Capullo had signed them and I was lining up for King and Snyder so I go Snyder as well. Also, the handler knew me from the previous signings so he hooked me up even though the line was capped. Buying the two exclusives didn't hurt my case either.

Now it makes more sense.

Capullo and Snyder were $20 each for sigs. Steigerwald didn't charge but I gave him a $20 for signing all six books, professional respect.

Those covers are almost too pretty to be scribbled all over.
