In late June 2018, CGC had recorded 124 gradings for the "Albuquerque Variant Cover", with 34 in the top grade of 9.8 (near mint / mint).
Copies if the 1:25 cover are not too difficult to get hold of, however, with this being a rarer variant and the issue featuring the first appearance of the Cosmic Ghost Rider, copies are going for hundreds of dollars (especially in the higher CGC and CBCS grades).
