CGC Now recognizes the Value of the Newsstand versions by adding "NEWSSTAND" onto the labels! The Much Harder to find Newsstand edition! Newsstand books were handled uncaringly by the general public, by kids with snotty noses and sticky fingers, at your local 7-11 and other locations that's why they are hard to come by in better conditions!I've provided a historical chart with estimates from industry leaders like Chuck from Mile High Comics concerning the distribution of Direct to comic stores vs Newsstands. With this Awesome book 10%-15% of the print run were est. How many were sent back and then how many survived in high grade shape!
Once collectors really understand the rarity of Newsstands in great shape we all know what will happen! Note: Sealed Poly Bagged books like Rise of the Midnight Sons series are horrendous with having a vertical indent down the middle of the front cover due to the bag seal from the book that was stacked on top of it from the distributor. It's very hard to find one without the vertical indent! CGC doesn't care about the poster/bag that came with the book!!
