Here’s a random one. Looks like they couldn’t even be bothered to fix bar codes for special edition stuff

From what I’ve read they got lazy or cheap and stopped changing out the plates during the printing process. I’m not sure when they stopped putting the actual title there. I see a lot of people listing them as errors which they aren’t to my knowledge.

Seems to go hand in hand with B&N and Bam. UPC recycling helps simplify the barcode system, less updates on the backend.

I haven’t stopped collecting but just haven’t been posting everything. It really just depends on the sellers pics, as that’s what I use to post them. These were all $1 each and any stickers are on the bags. If you don’t know I love the late Marvel Newsstands. However I do pick up the occasional DC book as well. Nothing major that I know of.

Found several of those Superman 702 newsstands in a dollar box once.. maybe next time I'll pick them up solely on strength of the Cassady cover

Very Nice!! I’ve run across a few but their either not a high enough grade or to expensive. So as of yet I’ve not picked up a copy.

Not sure what your ultimate motivation for buying is, but don't the "used" stickers, put on after distribution, ruin the grades?  I have some newsstands with white bar code stickers that cover the direct edition cover.  I assume as they were put on as part of the distribution process the grades wouldn't be affected.

The stickers are on the bag and board, not the comic @ThothAmon

I just leave them on for.the pic to show the cost...
