Dark Red #3 Misprint9675

Collector hogan36 private msg quote post Address this user
Thanks to the admins & mods for this site. I recently purchased Dark Red #3 MISPRINT Ryan Kincaid Virgin Foil Edition which is Limited to 100 copies!!! . This comic was misprinted on the interior. The title page was printed on the back cover and back cover was printed on the title page. Due to this being a Foil cover it will not be reprinted. I would like to know if it is worth having it sent in to CGC for grading.

2nd picture is a scan of a foil cover. The foil does not scan very well (as you can see)
The foil cover IS NOT BLACK OR DARK IN COLOR. The dark part of the scan is the foil part of the cover. Background is high gloss.

Whether it's "worth it" or not is very subjective. If you really like manufacturing errors, the artist, the series, etc then it's really up to your personal preference.

If you're asking if it's investment-worthy? Again, that's difficult to give a blanket answer to. Other variants of the book, with print runs as low as 75 copies, have sold for less than $100 as signed 9.8 so I wouldn't say there is an incredible demand for the book. Sure the manufacturing error may push the price up a little bit but I'd imagine the whole 100 foil print run is affected, but I could be wrong. It could be that even as an error, it is more common than certain other variants and editions of the same book.

But again, that's up to you. Is a book that's possibly worth less than $100 worth grading to you? Does the value combined with your personal fondness for it make it worth grading to you?

I'm not familiar with the series so I wouldn't slab it. But that said, I have slabbed books that I'm personally fond of that are worth $20 or less and I remain happy with the decision

I have a 1 of a kind White Widow misprint. (So far not another has been found)

I got it graded just to have it verified as a misprint and to keep it in good condition

If you want it slabbed do it.
