If that is the cae, then I would tend to think that this is real. Maybe he just estimated the size of the broadside for the listing? Still, Overruns are overruns. I'm not sure that I'd pay $50 for this. Also, if this is the publisher and he starts selling them, those of us that have them will see the value drop. Not that they were expensive in the first place, but if this guy has 5,000 of them in his closet, then the value will be about $3 a piece.
Exactly! If he is sitting on 100 of them, expect that they will start selling for $5 in "PERFECT" condition. Then, the ones that were folded as issued will be considered damaged and will be worth less.
I still have an issue that if this is a different size and not folded that it is not an official release.
I remember when this happened. I thought that it was interesting that people paid thousands of dollars for something, only to have them be deemed nearly valueless. Anyone trying to sell one has to worry that if the government finds out, they will take it. Because of this and because they were not really errors, but printers waste, anyone holding on to one owns a $10,000 curiosity that is wroth essentially nothing.
The baseball card collecting "field" also applies ridiculous values to printing errors for some mysterious reason. Maybe 15 years in the printing business just jaded me and I don't have the proper perspective to appreciate these things. ;) To me they are just scrap that didn't get caught in the plant.
