The "McFarlane Variant Cover" had 47 recorded gradings in the CGC census at the end of September 2018, with six copies of the McFarlane headless Spawn variant at the top grade of 9.8 (three on Signature Series).
These are not too difficult to find and there are usually a small number for sale on auction sites such as ebay but expect to pay over $1,000 for a CBCS or CGC 9.8 (near mint / mint) example. Also beware as there two headless variants (the Greg Capullo headless variant is a lot cheaper than the Todd McFarlane headless variant featured here).
