Trey reported on these a few days ago and they have been selling like hot cakes ever since. It’s unsure how many of these made it to the wild, but there already seems to be a mini flood.

When sellers state that a book is very hard to find, it’s typically just hyperbole. In this case, that description might be warranted. This book is quickly finding its way to the $200 range (Thanks to Jon M. for the tip).

I was talking to Steve Leiber this weekend and there seems to be a very good buzz about this book, as a lot of people were looking for any issues they could get their hands on. It’s great to see organic growth in a book rather than movie/TV spec hype.

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.

    I want one of those JL 51s!!! But as stated, the mini flood has started! One eBay auction has a 12 copy lot! I’m inclined to wait little longer till there is a dip below $30 or even lower.

    I think the people trying to sale damaged copies for over $30 is hilarious!

    A 9.6 ASM 667, Dell’otto just sold for $4k on Friday.

    Surprised not to see that on the list.

      wow, I didn’t see that. We’ve reported on Dell’otto so much though, so trying not to beat the dead horse. But thanks for chiming in, always love to hear about what I may have missed.

        No sweat. 🙂 I’m a Dell’otto freak and always track the ASM 667’s whenever one sees the light of day.

        That Punisher 2 Opena is beautiful I have never seen it before.

        I’m curious what a ballpark in the print run for that might be….

    We will see how well Justice League 51 carries. It should be noted that the 4.99 newsprint version actually has a second error with an incomplete bar code in addition to the wrong cover. Very strange.
