Ok I recently purchased 3 copies of this issue here, 2 from 1 seller and 1 from another. Now the single issue is exactly as appears in DB, however the 2 copies I received from other seller were missing Hollys signature. Which was odd, but I thought maybe they made 2 version of the gold edition, 1 with both signatures and 1 with only Jims.

Anyways I decided to contact the seller to see if they had a clue about it origins with no luck, they didnt know. So then decided to go to the source and figure this out. Well after talking to Jim Balent he didnt know how it could have happened either but he did give me one piece of news that made me think current DB is wrong.

Here is what he said

There are A and B covers with that foil stamp.

(The cover art for the foil stamp A and B... is the same cover art as the non-gold stamp A and B covers.)

Still... there was only a print run of 500 with the gold stamp.
250 cover A and 250 cover B.

Current DB has both the C & D covers as 1/500 making for a total of 1000 gold covers, when as he stated only 500 were made, 250 of each.

So my question is should they be changed to 1/250, or a note added to the item Bio.

One complication is the COAs do say #??? of 500.

Thanks to the following sellers for helping me put together my complete run of Amazing Spider-man #1-700

Hall Of Heroes
Thundercron's Longbox

Now for the sellers helping me finish my TMNT collection:

COA says 1/500 that's how we would list it unless we had tangible proof that the ratio referred to both covers combined. Even then we would just add a note to both covers, not change the ratio.

The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.
Comics Castle-AKA Pat McCauslin
Alpha Comics--ComicVortex--Comic Cellar--Hall of Heroes--Swifty's Olde Tyme Comic Shoppe
