We do NOT know this information yet...
I find most of the non-prestige books to be difficult to identify 9.8s, even when I'm looking through a stack that just hit the shelves (as I do at Midtown, which orders heavily on Valiant)
If you're not a *SQUEE*, you're okay with me.

Not sure if you only want raw data (I bought CGC 9.8 copies) but in the past 30-60 days (hard to keep track of time in this never ending groundhog day of lock downs) I picked up:

Imperium 2 1:20 Design Variant Cover (4/15,Valiant) for $200 (1 of 2 CGC 9.8)
Imperium 3 1:20 Design Variant Cover (4/15,Valiant) for $200 (only CGC 9.8)
Imperium 7 1:20 Tan Variant Cover (8/15,Valiant) for $150 (1 of 5 CGC 9.8)

As I am try to get the rarest variant of each issue I have been working on Imperium 2-16 in 1:20. I picked up 7 of the 1:20 in CGC 9.8 and have the 1:40 copy of issue 1 so I am half way done.

Nice hauls...:clap:

I’ve been doing the same, but picking them up raw. I haven’t seen any graded listings, besides the CGC 9.8 #1 blank sketch.
