Wouldn’t direct and newsstand be one of the same?

I thought there were only newsstand and Whitman?

Are Whitman/Direct copies more common in CGC 9.8?  7 cgc 9.8 copies have sold on eBay and 3 more are listed. Only 1 newsstand has been on eBay recently.

There are 10 Whitman copies posted in this thread and 2 newsstand editions.

No.  There is nothing "rare" about either in any grade.

ASM 194 cgc 9.8

 

Very similar pattern for both books

I've always thought 194 was gonna do well eventually.  just never got the headline as the 300, never really understood the gap between the 2 books though

"Newsstand" means absolutely nothing on this book (or most books for that matter). In fact, it would likely be more common than the direct. 

Great price on that CVA copy though. (Hard to say how much or even if that sticker affected much either, it didn't seem to do much for a couple other books on this same auction.)

I find it funny that you think Newsstand copies are more common than Whitman/Direct copies in cgc 9.8.

Based on what I see here and what comes up for sale, my eyeballs tell me differently.

You wouldn't find it funny if you knew how thriving newsstands were and how they were the primary means of distribution when this book came out.

And they didn’t survive in 9.8 condition as much as a Whitman 3 pack did.

This thread needs a bump. Here are my recently acquired copies:

Nice 9.6s.  Funny this bump in June had a gap of 2 years since the previous post.

Been following  ASM 194 cgc 9.6 on heritage for the last 2 auctions.  The 10 percent tax has me out of running for both auctions.  Pretty big increment when a buyer can win at $510-$520 instead of $560-$570.

I picked up a raw copy recently cuz I wanted to read it... almost went wild and picked up all the early BC appearances, but somehow managed to control myself.  Pretty fun issue though, especially having finished the PS4 game.  I'm sure I'll pick up at least 195 soon as well :)

around NM- I think...

9.6's seem really undervalued to me right now, even at $570.

@SchmaktThat's a sharp looking raw copy there !

Thanks! :)

Got it from wwcomics... spine corner dings are the worst thing about it.  2 *tiny* color breaks along the spine near the center that you can barely see in the scan, but otherwise pretty good!

no single pics but I do have this one...if you look closely you can see 3 copies of #194

 

I used to have 15 copies, I inherited a collection of 175 boxes, When I went through my ASM collection there was a 2 Bags filled with 15 Copies of #194 and 15 Copies of #195

I since traded off 12 copies for a few other Keys I needed but I've still got 3 of each

Same thing happened With Wolverine #1 Limited, found A bag with 12 copies
