I am about half a foot into a fool hardy project to try and get most of the rare VEI books in CGC 9.8 and am trying to come up of a list of those books that qualify. I thought some others might be interested in my list of rare books. I know there is a wonderful thread about the 100 rarest books but it only goes until January 2016.

I am sure that I have missed some books so please feel free to suggest other books that should be on the list. I focused on making a list of all 1:25, 1:30, 1:50, 1:60, 1:75, 1:100, 1:200, 1:250 and 1:500 books plus the 9 line wide limited releases and gold books. (I do realize in some cases a 1:20 book might be rarer than a 1:25 book but I had to draw a line somewhere). I have focused on collecting the gold books and 1:30 and rarer books and have managed to put 84 of the 242 books together in CGC 9.8.

What I do not know which particular convention books or preview books or retailer books that are particularly rare or even it there is a list of all those books, rare or not. Greg's phenomenal price guide has some many of them but I know there are some that are missing. Has anyone tried the difficult of trying to make a complete list of these books?

Here is what I have put together (and if I have missed anything please comment)

Does anyone else find the amount of "rare" books to be ridiculous?

Wow... the effort to try and get all of these in CGC 9.8!.... just WOW! :clap:

Thanks for sharing the list! It is neat looking at the books put in order in this type of rarity format. Hopefully the list will continue to evolve and grow.

It's an incredible list for 5 -6 years of publishing. It would be an incredible list for 30 years of publishing.

Fool hardy more likely. Don’t know if it could ever be completed. 86 of 242 books is a good start but I doubt it is a project that will ever be completed even if Valiant didn’t add a few books per month to the list.

Keep in mind that many of these aren't as rare as you might think, due to errors in distribution (Book of Death 2), or additional copies being given out as a bonus for ordering a store exclusive (4001 AD).

We don't know the actual rarity, except in the case where they announced the print run. we only know the ratio that they were available to retailers through normal orders.

Other potential books for the list:
X-O/Harbinger flip blank
A&A/Bloodshot flip blank
Shadowman/Harbinger Wars flip blank
Summer of Valiant TPB (I believe that the print run on this is 950)
NYCC Bloodshot Reborn #14A
NYCC Bloodshot Reborn #14B
NYCC Shadowman/Rae Sremmurd

Yes, but now you have a new goal to chase. The hunt is the fun.

Hey, speaking of rare books, I wonder what the numbers are for the Pre-Order editions. My shop has a good number of back issues on the shelf but as far as I know there are only two of us that get the pre-orders.

The covers are different (with the pre-order marker) and they have extra content inside.

Is pre-order rarity a thing?

Rarity is a funny thing. There are more Book of Death 1 1:60s, by far, then there are many, many other variants. Store variants are generally limited to 500-750. However, there are many, many 1:10 and 1:20 variants that have a smaller "earned" ratio. Further still, if you are looking for high grade books, VEI books in general are abysmal, and variants are much worse. They tend to look like they have been sitting in someone's back pocket. I'm ecstatic when I get a 9.8 VEI variant. Ecstatic. I'm happy when I get a 9.6. I would never accept a 9.6 V1 book.

There are many 1:10 and 1:20 variants that have no 9.8 or 9.6 grades. They might not exist. The paper is very condition sensitive. The distribution of variants are small. Diamond manhandles them, and many of the covers are dark. I've spent the last 7 years chasing 9.8s, traveling the country, and I have tons of anecdotal experience.

My LCS today gave me 4 1:20s for free. Because the spine splits are more than 1/4 inch. And white. Valiant/Diamond wouldn't replace them, for whatever reason. It's been months and months. Anyway, just goes to show you how hard it is to even get a NM- book.

I don't think the market for VEI books is accurate. 9.6s are sometimes the best you can get. Sometimes you can't even get that. There are so many covers to collect, and the poor condition has turned off many slabbers like myself. It's a futile exercise, since it will be impossible to achieve a 9.8 set, whatever that means. Some of the biggest bargains of VEI books are 9.6 variants. Whether the market ever catches up to this, who knows, but in terms of the cost and difficulty to procure one in that grade, it's the best buy in Valiant books.

My $.02.

Secret Weapons VVSS should be included here. Think that was a variant of some sort, but I can't recall the actual number on it.

There are a few more errors - off the top of my head.

There is an X-O 1 that has an error in the indicia. This is a very rare book. I have one in 9.8.

There is also a Book of Death that has an error in the indicia as well. I believe it's #2 1:50. Can't recall. I don't have one.

The Delinquents 1 blank sketch cover was initially misprinted with a very glossy cover. Not good for a blank sketch :lol: I don't know how many got out. I've only seen the one I got, which went to my LCS.

The Shadowman mask book was misprinted without perforations, but that book is not rare at all.

One would think it could easily be under more than one cover since the inside books are the same under each cover unless the error copies just happened to be matched with the 1:50 covers.

That is a good spot on the 2 books as rarely are in indices read by people let only in detail enough to spot an error.

Don't know if this should be added to your list DBS, but what about the X-O Manowar (2017) #3 Blanks? I know they were Con exclusives, but I don't know how many were produced.

It should be included; several books should be included; however, we need an actual no-sh!t print run or confirmation from past/present VEI staff member (e.g. Dino in most cases).

We “know” that the X-O #3 Blank is rare; no question. We just do not know exactly how rare.

The X-O #1 (2012) 2nd print cover with First Printing in the indicia is ridiculously low... maybe 50 to 75(?). Dinesh might have a note about that one. It was the first ultra-rare, back when X-O #1 and Harbinger #1 were the only two books released.

Given the below 10,000 (and in some cases 5,000) print runs Valiant books beyond issue 1 seem to enjoy, I'd say it's almost all rare at this point. :lol:

I'm not sure if this is an error, but something is wrong...

Image

That's not 2014 (but that could just be a CGC mistake), but the cover of the actual 2015 FCBD Valiant 25th Anniversary is a group shot of all the characters facing to the right... not a solo of X-O.

:hm:

Image



EDIT: It looks like the solo X-O cover is supposed to be the Ultimate Comics variant with a sticker.
http://ultimatecomics.com/shop/variants ... stickered/

Maybe the unstickered books aren't supposed to exist. :hm:

That was a store variant. It's pretty rare. They did a handful without store stickers (less than 10 if I recall), which is what this one is. I think they auctioned them. Super expensive. Can't remember the store. I've had a couple with the sticker (also hard to find), and they are in abysmal shape.

OK, it looks like you were responding while I was editing.

It's from Ultimate Comics, their store exclusive - Tommy Lee Edwards variant cover art

Ha! That's it. Ultimate. They auctioned off a few without the sticker.

I just looked up my eBay auction - I paid $6.98 shipped for the stickered version (500 I think was the print run). The others were over $100 (possibly very high).

Found it... there were supposed to be 100 copies without stickers, auctioned on Ebay for charity. :thumb:
