Happened across this error printing oddity, how did it get passed by QC? 

This is what it should look like.

I think your first mistake is assuming there was Quality Control in the first place.  Quick weekly reprints for a foreign market like that were probably an afterthought on multiple levels.

Cool book, though.  Definitely the sort of thing I would snag if I spotted it in the wild.

I'm gonna have this reholdered so I'll just post it here for the time being. I wish I could have a time machine if for nothing else to just walk into a store and see something like this sitting on a spinner rack! Opening that up checking out the Kane artwork :cloud9: ! Can you imagine? Just wow!!!

Good Lord.

A 9.8 White #151 sold on CL at auction for over $2,200?

People realize that there aren't just 10 copies of this now, right?

Ok, I'm kidding........but..........................wow.

I'm really happy that I've never gotten the 9.8 completion bug.

I've never had any problem with 9.2s and 9.4s.

I'm working on replacing this one that I sold about 10 years ago.

That was one of many bad choices back then.

Yeah and there was another C-LINK 9.8 151 ow/w with a little better eye appeal that sold for 1600. There's quite a variance there. Geez is a white page copy really worth that much more? I think not!

The 148 wasn't even a greatly centered copy either. The marvel banner was also a bit misaligned. There was a recent 148 9.8 white with perfect registration in Heritage auctioned for around 1000 less than the 4k C-link one you referred to. Those 2 were really great results for the sellers!

Edit: my bad, the 148 i mentioned auctioned for over 5k. So yeah 4k seems right on that C-link one

It cost me a pretty penny, but this one just arrived, and it is SO pretty.

Much nicer than the OW copy that I sold 10 years ago.

Just lamenting BA spidey's lately as I have a 121, 122 and 129.  But sleeping on HG copies of non keys is now going to cost me.  The 101 is probably going to cost more than I paid for my 129 :insane:  These books are not rare, but the old supply demand thing is in full effect.

I was just past 11 when 148 came out.

I was going out of my mind, because I had been buying Spider Man religiously for 2 years, and I couldn't find 148 anywhere.

I was at a department store with my parents, and they had a comic book vending machine.

I could see the spine of the third book down in one of the slots was an asm 149.

My dad had to buy me the two books on top of it, to get to it.

I see it there, I put the 25 cents in, and it gets stuck falling out.

I still remember the temper tantrum I threw to this day.

My Dad went and got a store manager, and got him to open the machine, and hand me the book.

:cloud9:

There is a memory for you! Dad's RULE ^^

Was watching reruns of the 70s Show and this happened. So many awesome props but they couldn’t afford Bronze?
