As one of Marvel’s most popular titles, Uncanny X-Men had some excellent creative teams working on the title. Newsstand copies are difficult to find out there published during the 3.99 price variant “window” (when regular direct edition copies were priced at $2.99). Pictured below are two issues out of that $3.99 window that have particularly stunning artwork, #499 and #511:
Uncanny X-Men #499, $3.99 Newsstand Edition cover price variant.
Uncanny X-Men #511, $3.99 Newsstand Edition cover price variant.
Although neither copy above currently appears on the CGC census in $3.99 Newsstand Edition, it will be interesting to observe the accumulation of census data for these and other variants in this very interesting “class” of newsstand comics that CGC has chosen to “break out” making them one of the few CGC-recognized newsstand variant categories of comics.
