So are people that ordered this going to put their item up for auction before they get them. I have never done a pre-sell or whatever.

Really...............Thats messed up I didn't call. I got an email. I guess they are just trying to avoid selling more then 1 copy... Did you happen to ask if these were 1st or 2nd print? I have to believe they are 1st since 2nd printing is not released till Feb 12th..

There are a lot of people doing pre-sells since the product isn't officially released until the 14th.. In comics people pre-sell all the time, just make sure it's clearly stated as such and I think you'll be fine. I don't think the rush for this comic has even hit yet, late next week you're gonna see it big time. I've already seen 1st printing lots of 5 go from 80 to 150 - 200 overnight, and lots of 10 as high as $400 already.. This thing is catching on fire.

Are we ordring 1st Prints or 2nd. The link doesn't make it clear, but I have seen on ebay someone selling 2nd ed. and it says pre sell not releasing till Feb 12th. How do we know which print we have all just ordered? The description says VOL.2 does that mean 2nd printing? or mean something else?

Typically they will be 1st prints unless specified otherwise. I believe I ordered 1st prints form that site and if not, I'll send them back, but I'm pretty confident they are 1st. You can always call them to clarify.. I just bought 5 more 1st prints off ebay... I got 5 last night at $80, and just bought 5 more at $120.. They just keep going up... They're already into a 2nd printing before the comic even hits stands.. This is pretty incredible really.

I would also recommend any that you don't plan on holding, get rid of ASAP. Once he takes office and makes any sort of mistake, their value will start to plummet.

Should we list this weekend for 7 days as a pre sell or wait? How can we tell if its a first or second print once received?

The inside front cover will say 2nd Printing if it's the 2nd, otherwise it won't say, but sometimes it will say 1st printing, but typically it's blank and no reference to any printing. They assume they only do 1 printing so if a 2nd is done, they put 2nd Printing, 3rd Printing and so on.. I can see this hitting 4 or 5 printings. I think this is going to go pretty high, probably $75-$100 an issue for a couple weeks.. That's my guess

Personally I'd do 1-3 day if your preslisting (due to the ebay rebates - 50% listings all this month). I wont preslist just in case I dont get this. Unless you state in your auction that you do not plan to ship until 1/20, people are not only going to expect this to ship day of release, but if anythings to your copy in route...your feedback will be dinged and/or rep. with that buyer. I'd much rather wait until my copy arrives. Also I'll be selling mine on Craigslist and avoiding all the ebay fees. Someone locally I'm sure will be interested in it. I know I've got a fair number of comic book collectors locally...just not sure where they hang out.

I have a house just outside DC so maybe I will do Craigslist with my copies.

Guys, we got in just in time, check this news item out

Since it broke in USA Today, the news of Spider-Man meeting President Obama (he’ll be meeting him on Inauguration Day, so it’s fair to drop the “Elect”) has spread very far and very wide, culminating, at this point, with Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada appearing three times on CNN in less than 24 hours to talk about it.

Cool, I think I got the last issue! Went back to the home page after I bought one and there were none left. Thanks for the tip.

Just wanted to say thanks for the heads up Indy. I read your thread this morning and ordered mine at like 6:00 am. I don't know if I'm going to chase anymore but this is like getting in on the ground floor of a new stock. I am going to wait until I have it in hand before I list it. We'll see where it's at then. I think it will fly if it is listed as in hand.

This should be the variant right?
It states variant Obama cover in his listing. Should be good.

No problem. I am involved in the electronic entertainment industry, and due to that I keep my ear pretty close to the comic market, so anytime I come across anything like this again, you guys will be the first to know
