    Okay. I'm a legacy member.

    Ticketmaster created a queue when you clicked the link. I logged on 15 minutes early and there were more than 1000 people ahead of me. You might want to log in now. PayPal checkout is easiest. Also there is a drop down menu on the right side of the order page. It defaults to lowest price. Click "Best Seats" and take the best seats available.

    I am including a screenshot of the available sections. I'm in 114.

    Of the available sections it appears that about 3/4 of that is sold already.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    And I feel fine.

    Just wondering, what is the consensus over here : scarcity or condition?

    Would you rather have a 1st print whose condition is not so good, or a second print in better quality?

    I guess that depends on the ultimate goal, but for me, "1st print whose condition is not so good"
    (I'm assuming were talking about books)

    Open call. I'm looking for a "C.C. Sabbathia: Jedi Bobblehead doll and the check book is out!!!! They'll be giving them away at the stadium on May 4, so anyone looking to make a reasonable buck let me know!! My grandson wants one desperately and I don't want to let him down.

    I don't even see second printings as collectible, really. I have a few exceptions to this for some of the most expensive books - I'd sometimes rather have a second printing compared to nothing, but that's very, very rare. I never go out of my way to find a second printing. I'd rather try to find a first printing of something that's in my price range than settle for a second printing of something that's not.

    My issue recently has been condition. I used to pick up cheaper versions of first printings that were in G to VG condition, with the idea that I could always upgrade later. As I've been selling some of them off to enhance other parts of my collection (S/L editions, mostly) I have found that they didn't really appreciate in value while the NF/F first printings that I want usually did. So the gulf between the "desirable" copy of the book and the "acceptable" copy is generally greater than back when I bought the "acceptable" copy, meaning that even if I can get the full value back from it (which is less common), I've actually lost ground in trying to get that "desirable" copy.

    As a consequence, I've found myself pursuing fewer first printings in general, and trying to maximize the condition of the copy that I'm looking for.

    The issue is much less salient in the S/L world as those books are generally handled better and so even if you limit yourself to only NF/F copies of S/L books, they are not as hard to find as some F/F trade copies.

    As an example, it took me a long time to find a truly F copy of the first printing of The Talisman - and I still ended up marrying a F book to a F dustjacket from a different copy. Finding a F/F copy of the S/L is much, much easier...
    Looking for the following Centipede Press books:
    • Any book with limitation number #52
    • Chimera II (any #)
    • Deluxe editions
    • ARCs/Proofs
    Also looking for a Lettered The Graveyard Book from Subterranean Press.
