    To Slab or not to Slab?

    I took it off an eBay listing. The back cover seems fine.. I would imagine it's probably the first few page that got the 'mite treatment... a restoration job would def be better than what it looks like now.. some sellers out there sell single pages.. even panels off popular books and you'd be surprised at the money their getting

    To Slab or not to Slab?

    At this point it would be better to cut the book in half even that would be more presentable

    To Slab or not to Slab?

    I cant imagine anyone taking pride in owning this copy whether in a slab or not

    My take on the whole thing is that print runs are unimportant as a whole. Demand is where its at. And thats why I personally never bother discussing them at an early stage of a spec I'd give a book some time before estimating a print run... If its a trending book, see if it catches on and sticks for a few months... Then estimate if its a good investment (flip/hold) by "estimating" a print run... Weve seen this time and time again with many examples... Alot of people think its good to hold a book like, lets say, UF#4 because its been holding value for a long time, and there has been plenty of copies around. If, when UF#4 first started trending and people said "well I can see this book holding value BUT there have been SO MANY printed, so I think I should flip now", you'd shoot yourself in the foot for dumping based only on that notion. I mentioned Spawn 1 earlier on, what better example do you have than that? millions of copies printed... Millions! And that book has great demand for at least the past couple of years now. A high print run wont bring it down in price. You also have to consider that most dealers know about these things and liquidate slowly based on demand. It only takes one hungry dealer to crash a book in a market as small as ours. One If a book starts trending and a dealer decides hes moving all of his copies now at, lets say, a fifth of its current market value, it doesnt even matter if there are only 1,000 copies printed, if that one dealer holds sufficient copies of said stock. I'd speculate first and foremost on how much of an impact does a spec has at its early stages before even thinking about print runs but thast just me
