  • Distributor solicitation catalog featuring the cover art of Saga #1 on one side and Fairest #1 on the other
  • Saga went on sale March 2012
  • ⚠️ Buyer Beware: it is difficult to determine the validity of this catalog as a collectible as there are only two sales over the course of one year: February 20, 2022 for $125 and February 23, 2022 for $489
  • With no prior history to evaluate demand, the concern for an item like this is that a high dollar value is being established for when more inventory is listed for sale on eBay and elsewhere

  • Fourth ongoing Miles Morales series
  • ⚠️ Buyer Beware: recent sales of this issue has reached up to $100 ungraded. It isn't clear what is happening with this issue considering there's very little inventory listed for sale but during the month it went on sale, it ranked in the top 20 issues ordered of December 2018 with an estimated 60,000 copies in circulation and over 300 copies now graded 9.8. These numbers do not indicate scarcity despite a low inventory for sale. Values for this listing will not change in this database until a consistent history of sales presents itself

  • Souvenir book with virgin cover art by Jesus Pedroza, limited to 25 copies
  • ⚠️ Buyer Beware: the cover without text is promoted as limited to 25 copies but the CGC census reports the "Virgin" cover as having 53 graded copies (43 in 9.8)
  • The census also identifies a 'Variant Cover' that registers 26 total copies (23 in 9.8)
  • To add to the confusion, there is a separate listing for an Imperial Valley Comic Con 2020 Book without any additional identifying information that counts only 2 copies graded 9.8
  • Sales range from $200 to $1,500 on eBay
  • Copies listed for sale range from $500 to $5,600
  • The Imperial Valley Facebook page made "half" of the copies available online and the rest available at the show but did not clarify if 13 of the 25 virgin copies were for sale online or 12
  • Values will not be populated until the information on the CGC census is clarified

  • Variant 'Netherrealms' Mortal Kombat DLC game edition
  • Intended for distribution at the 2020 Final Kombat live gaming competition in Chicago which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdowns
  • ⚠️ Buyer Beware: the current value of this book has been communicated to Key Collector to be in the $2,500 range BUT considering this con was cancelled, it is unknown who is in possession of these promotional giveaways or if they were dispersed
  • The concern is that these issues have been held back to establish a scarcity perception and elevated price point
  • Graded copies as of August 2022:
  • 3 copies graded 9.8
  • 2 copies graded 9.2
  • 1 copy graded 9.6 / 9.0 / 8.5 / 7.5
  • The Editor-In-Chief at Todd McFarlane Productions relayed to Key Collector the following quote, transcribed to this description directly:
  • "So this was a small event to begin with. Only a couple hundred issues were produced. It was canceled to the public but it was still held in private for the players. What we were told was that less than 50 copies were distributed by the event organizers to the players and their +1’s. The rest, along with all the other free swag was trashed due to the cost of shipping it back to the MK offices. We have worked with them before so there is no reason to believe that this was not the case. I know the guys on some of the Spawn Groups are pretty relentless when it comes to rare Spawn issues, and I know several of them reached out to the players themselves to get a copy. I think it would be fare to say that less than 50 copies exist out in the wild at this point. I hope this helps."
  • Conclusion: it is difficult to determine how many of these exist but chances are it is one of the scarcest variants considering it was going to be given away at an event that was to take place at the Park West theatre in Chicago which has an occupancy of 1,000
