Default Who wants to make some easy money next week?

I know I do.. Here's the deal.. Marvel Comics Amazing Spider-man #583 comes out next week with a Variant Barack Obama cover. These are sold out from Marvel, but you can still get them around $14 a pop on ebay. I do comics from time to time and this is a potential GOLDMINE.

Note: This comic isn't released to the public until the 14th.. I seriously doubt you'll be able to get one in a comic shop, and if you do, you'll be limited to 1 copy.

I grabbed 10 copies from ebay myself, and next week I can see these going for $40-$50 a pop..

I'm just sharing this for my fellow collectors in case they want to try. No guarantee you'll make anything, but I've sold and made lots of money with many hot marvel comics, like last year, made a FORTUNE on Captain America #25. That's the issue he died in, and more recently Batman #681 (Where he died too, supposedly) anyway, and as any of you followed the Obama eTopps card which initially sold at $8.00 and is now at $80 know, anything Obama related right now is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!

Who knows, this comic could hit $70-100 within a week.. They're already flying off ebay. I just wanted to share this to help my fellow collectors fund their habit

If you do take my advice and make some money, come back to this thread and tell everyone how right I was!

Good luck.

Obama and Spider-Man appear in comic together

FYI:

I found 1 online store that still have copies available at the base price of $3.99 - but you can only order 1 copy. If you want to grab one go to XXXXXX

The website referenced in this post has sold out:

Depending on when this lands in hand, it could spike. If they dont your out 6-7 bucks..given todays market thats a pack of cards. Worse case scenerio I put this with the other small stack of comic books I have left (or my big box of historical newspapers) and it can serve as my historical marker.

I heard about it yesterday on the radio, but figure I may even be able to flip this locally for 10-20 bucks and I'll be more than happy..no ebay fees no hassle..cash is king!

I think next Wednesday afternoon is when people will be the most eager to find it. Most "normal" people are not even aware of this issue yet.

Default Guys!!!!!!!

Are there different vol.? or versions? The one that the comic store with limit of 1 copy is that the same one that is selling on ebay??? I think there may be different copys... Lmk what you think Indyxx

NOTE: This extremely limited collectible retailer incentive variant was offered to direct comic book retailers only for a very limited time and not offered in Previews. Additionally, comic book retailers were required to increase their orders for the standard edition of this issue to exceed their orders for a preceding ASM issue in order to be eligible to order this variant. Because of the very limited time frame allowable for retailers to get their orders in, many simply missed the chance to order this variant, while some may have decided the cost of increasing their orders would not be economically viable to become eligible. While high demand was expected for this very limited variant, Marvel's most press release leading to widespread news coverage has further fueled the fire. This variant is expected to sell out prior to release on January 14 and is technically out of print considering the cut off date for orders has since expired

Your probably right e....but I can easily say protected by paypal....down side of this of course that means I'll have to ship it back to him if I get the non varient copy.

So if its the Non-Variant How would we know? I read the descrition and it says that it has the extra 5 page thing in the back. So you will send it back? How do you plan on doing that? I also Paid with Paypal. I guess you can say not as described?

the variant will most likely be numbered differently... i.e. 583 a/b.
