I'd like a CGC 9.6 or maybe 9.8. Even a super high grade raw. Thanks.

Thank you my friend. I'm about to make an offer right now.

Got it! Picked up a high grade raw for $45 on eBay. Not sure if it is a good deal but I "needed" it!

Let me know how that book looks. When that book hit Ebay, I was all over it. He clipped the corners on his picture, so I couldn't tell if it was in good shape or not. I requested pics, and got static for days, never did get any responses. I threw $40, but got an auto reject for my bid. It was either that, or he was on at that time, and slapped it away. Either way, I am curious how that book looks.

Congrats, as I wanted that book too

Yep, nothing says "Thank you for your interest" like an auto-reject! :!:

I'm pretty sure I have a 9.8 I'd be willing to part with. I'll have to check when I get back from vacation.

I'll post condition when I get it. I got 2 auto rejects then my last offer stuck. It took him over 24hrs to accept. He must not be on a lot. I think it is one of the better covers. Coincidentally I won an Imperium 1 1:40 raw at the same time. An argument can be made that it is the best variant cover.

Lots of good variant covers to choose from...

One of my favorites is Harby 7 variant. :drool: :drool:

Harby 3 variant is pretty badass if you ask me... :D

Being new hear, I wonder if there is a thread where you give your opinion on the "best" Valiant cover and why? It could be "best" for any reason (Art, artist, style, rarity, value, or importance). It seems like an interesting conversation.

Go ahead and start that thread. :)

We may have discussed it before, but there are lots of additional choices since then.

Randomly this past weekend, I discovered that I actually had a copy of this variant tucked between two gold books for some reason. :?

I'm on travel this week, but will give close inspection once I return.

Book came in the mail today. It's good but not perfect. Probably a 9.0. Would grade 9.2-9.4 but there is a small bend in the bottom right corner. It presents well. Awesome cover. Black covers are hard to keep in great shape. Especially the spine.

Still worth the $$? With the cost shown in the Vfans price guide as $35, I had a tough time pulling the trigger at $50. I know it's a rare book, and they don't hit Ebay very often, so maybe it would be worth that...

Regardless, glad you got what you were looking for, that cover is amazing!!! :thumb:

Honestly. I'm neither here nor there. I probably over paid a little bit considering the bend on the bottom corner, which you cannot see in the pictures, but I still like it. I should have waited till a graded copy showed up but I get impatient.

It REALLY is a badass cover!

Currently there are only 7 CGC 9.8 copies out there!

Well, no. Now there are three that I know of that have those 9.8's. Greg, Rico, and as of just a little while ago, Me. I just purchased Dr Noel's 9.8 that he had.

I really wonder just how many we have from this site...
