Is an X-Men #11 Pressman in 9.8 a good book?

just wondering what kind of value something like that would have...

That particular book is the most common of the Pressmans since it was advertised and packed in with the Alert Adventure game but a double cover 9.8 sold for $250 last year. For some reason GPA doesn't list the sale but it was tracked on the STL Comics Variant Mafia Forum Pressman Thread.

303 & 307 from what I still understand were all "mail-aways". Until someone opens up a sealed box and finds 1 in there instead of the coupon that's all we'll know. No one has confirmed otherwise instead of some anecdotal evidence.

 

 

Apologies for necro-ing this thread...

 

I picked up a sealed copy of the game for cheap, opened it up today, and this was inside. 307 is defenitely not mail-away only.

 

Not sure what it'll grade with the printers crease on top edge and wear at lower staple front. It's otherwise flawless.

You can ID the pressmans by the different colors in the covers, they don't match the originals.

 

The back cover is also a Pressman ad instead of the regular back cover.

I think that the interior covers are also pressman ads, making 3 out of the 4 covers for each comic pressman ads...

My old copy, sold last year, still one of 2, might be able to coax one more out of my boxes.

Ok so I think I have 1 more to add could it be the rarest yet has anyone seen it ?

X-MEN # 295 has the pressman ad on back cover but no ads in the book for pressman.

Will try to get a pic up soon.

Well, you can find one here for $0.25 + shipping. :)

I also checked my copies.  All of the UXM #295 issues had a Pressman ad on the back cover.
