So are the current DC issues with A and B versions, which I heard are produced 50/50, not variants because both are regular? Or Marvel direct and newsstand issues from ~1986 when they were equally produced?

I ask not out of any real interest, but the pedantry here begs for it.

@sly
Additionally some Newsstand stores were actually selling the direct delivery comics, so by purchasing at the corner store you still weren't guaranteed to be getting the newsstand versions...dirty dogs!!

If you're sending in for pressing it'll be getting re-graded as well, you don't have to do anything extra. The label generated once it's re-graded will have the new notation.

Kind of an overstated nothing burger here to me.

Listing the correct info on your label is not a ground breaking event.

I apologize, I cannot tell if a poster is joking or not ....I'm under the impression that you were most probably joking ? At least, I really hope so...

If by fluke it wasn't a joke...I'm honestly speechless ....

@BigRedOne1944 It might not mean anything to you but that doesn't mean it's not significant to the people that collect them.

Someone should tell that to the other grading companies.

Im not saying that it is not important, but putting the correct info on the label? I would think that would be a basic common sense practice.

I don' t know. So the big change is that instead of "Canadian Edition" the label will say "75¢ Canadian Price Variant"? And that's important because it's "more info"?

Then why not just label them: "75¢ Cover Price Canadian Newsstand Price Variant Cover"?

I agree, but there still seems to be resistance by people who don't want to track the information.

That's odd..... Why would anybody oppose having the correct information listed, Even if the info is not of interest to you. Makes no sense to me.

The difference between “ Canadian Edition” and “Cover Price Variant” is a huge one. Canadian Edition refers to books printed outside of the USA...thus the need for CBCS to change their labels for 1980’s-1990’s 1st print cover price variants. CBCS knows that these labels needed to be changed because they are not reprints or foreign edition books. CGC clearly and very sadly still calls every book from the 1940’s -1990’s Canadian Editions? Hell no! Looks like CGC is really behind on doing proper research...or they are too proud to change their labels for the fear of money and labor involved. Maybe not today or tomorrow but very soon CGC will pay a huge price for their pride or lack of proper research!!!

Listing everything can double or triple the size of the database. It's more work to track & maintain.
