Two I just stumbled across from the same seller.

I saw the X-Men 1 first and had to wonder if maybe someone was scammed with it or trying to scam someone with it. The book is one of Marvel’s facsimile edition with the cover replaced, apparently to look more like the original




The Incredible Hulk 181 is a similar situation except the cover still has the new $3.99 price tag




On top of that, the seller has a starting bid of $200 and $160 respectively, which is ridiculous.



Wow! Both of these have 1 bid, my guess is the same person. I can’t imagine whoever is bidding on these is fully clear on what’s for sale. Maybe people see “Coverless” and “facsimile edition” and think it’s the original book with a reprinted cover.

@Sigur_Ros Wait! Is that an actual collecting niche?

Did the seller take the opportunity to list it for $2002 to make it a super duper rare quadruple 2?

I once had a guy spend over 100 in shipping a single slabbed book. 1700$ was value. It looked like a make shift suitcase....

This was more interesting than anything else.

I get the auction catalogs from Van Eaton out in California because I am interested in Disneyana. They regularly have large Disney only auctions with rare stuff from the parks.

But the most recent is a general pop culture auction, and it has one of the most complete Spider Man collections I have seen come up for sale as a unit.







I find it interesting that the two big keys are purple label copies; I would think the kind of collector who assembled this would have gotten "better" copies.

Other lots include a purple label FF #1 and a green label DD #1. Amazing Fantasy #1-14 in raw form are also available. I would love to know the story behind Van Eaton getting these for sale. It's really far outside their normal range.
