For Sale: New Mutants 98 & X-Men 297 gold

Postby The Curmudgeon » Tue Sep 12, 2017 12:36 pm

Okay guys, I've been hanging onto these two books for some time now. I think it's time for them to find a new home.
I know the prices are high but that is what I feel they are worth, so please don't beat me up about it.

The 297 is the Gold variant.

The 297 came in the game that I had my LCS pre-order.

Total Comic Mayhem reports this book to have been limited print run of less than 500 for distribution with the X-Men Alert! board game.
I don't know who came up with this number, or how they arrived at that figure.

The last comment on that page is me.

Thanks, I'm actually surprised it survived in that nice a condition considering all the times I've moved over the years.

This is the hardest of the variant covers to find, and may be the rarest of all X-men books out there. Where as all of the other comics on this list came included with the game, the only way to get this book was with the mail away coupon, so if someone missed the deadline, or more likely didn't mail in their coupon, then this book never made it into circulation. It is estimated that there are less than 500 copies out there for you to snag.


Did not know anything about this book... thanks for the info!

It was kind of kingnampa to provide some details for the 297 for the "clever ones" posting in your cbcs thread.

Too bad the information is flawed. I tried to line them out about the exact origin of this book.
Hell, even Comic Mayhem's info isn't exactly correct.

True.
Hopefully the "R" word (rare) will change people's opinions.

Good luck with your sell. Seems this book may be a bit of an exception.
