    1. That’s a tough one. The lower ratio ones are going to be so readily available that you should be able to find them for cover price or less eventually. The only ones that may be difficult to get are the higher ratio, but then again they could be readily available. For example, my lcs has 4 stores so they ordered 2,000 copies for all locations. That’s 200 1:10’s they got. Big online retailers will be the same. I don’t recommend getting the higher ratio but that’s the only chance of the variants really having any value.
