@RickestRick 103 copies have been CGC graded. Of those 90 copies are 9.4 or better.

Small numbers so far.

Well if there is 2500 comic stores in the United States (estimate) and it's a 1 in 50 cover...it's pretty rare. In 2015, not many shops ordered this adult cartoon comic book to fill their shelves. You had to order 50 copies to get 1. Most likely the largest stores in the US would be the ones buying them. My figure was strictly an estimate, not established fact. I still say there's less than 500 of them. I used to speculate there was less than 100 of them in existence but the CGC census proves otherwise.

103 copies + all the unknown pop from CBCS isn't a small number if you are factoring in the current shilled pricing of the comic (at an estimated $2k or so for 9.8's). That artificial price point will not hold in the near future. In fact, prices have been dropping since Spring.

Like @kaptainmyke commented, people once thought there were under 20, then it was 50, then 100, and now it's under 300 or 500 (even then I can see there being a lot more sitting in the wings or at the publisher/printing). So I'm thinking whether this current pricing holds or not will depend a lot on the population of the comic. If the census increases by 3x... I see this book dropping to below $1k again and finally purchasing one Pipe dreams? What do you guys think?

@RickestRick The show has been renewed for several more years.

Walking Dead is starting to roll over but how long did it go up before that happened?

I bought my 9.4 graded and felt pretty good about the large amount of money I paid for it.

The book caught a lot of people by surprise and I doubt there are all that many CBCS copies of this variant.

I also doubt that there are all that many high grade raw copies that haven't been graded.

That book will always be rare, folks. It has a very thin, flimsy, all black back cover. 9.8s are unicorns for RAM #1, any variant. the 1:50 goes for that much more because of the rarity.

While it's true, there was some shilling last year on the 1:50 variant, it's only slowly been going up from 1100 to 2200 a year later. It will not go back down any time soon with the renewal of 70 new episodes. Unless Dan Harmon finally drinks himself to death?

If it was a natural progression and price climb to $2k, I would agree with you. But it was shilled to this current price, so it's hard to say the market/buyers will be there long term at the current pricing.
