  • 1A (Barcode: 00411; Diamond: APR130607): Regular Pichelli cover (below)

Guardians Of The Galaxy #4 Other Variants

The CGC census had 100 recorded gradings of the Campbell cover in late June 2016 (two thirds at 9.8); the nearest rival (amongst the five #4 covers), in terms of numbers graded, was the Movie variant (1:25) with only 17 at that same point in time.

The Campbell cover is the one in demand with prices, in spring 2016, for NM copies exceeding $200 and CGC/CBCS 9.8 copies exceeding $400. It is worth noting that the Granov cover, also a 1:50, didn't take off at all and was selling for under $20 (and under $10 in some cases) around the same time.

Below is a sample CBCS label for the comic, which is noted as the "Campbell Retailer Incentive" variant (CGC have it as the "Campbell Variant Cover"):
