    Have you ever got a #1 for a numbered book? I haven't....

    I have got low numbers, yet to get a #1 for a numbered book. Cap

    Yes, and an A for a lettered. Kinda cool when it happens, but it’s a thrill that doesn’t last long, frankly.

      I believe the lowest number I have in my collection is an 8. I've tried for 17 several times as it's my wife's favorite number. I'd go for Q if I were trying for a letter. I have no preference as far as the actual number but, want all numbers to match in a set.

        17 is my number for the Earthling Halloween series and I have all the books in the series. ~Cap

          The lowest number I received on a book I ordered directly from the publisher was #22 for the SWAN SONG signed/limited from Subterranean Press. I didn't request a specific number, that's just what I got.

          The lowest number I own is #2 of the signed/limited edition of Robert McCammon's THE FIVE, also from Subterranean Press. I bought it on the secondary market.

            As far as my numbered items go, I have a Number One Mouse Guard print I got at this year’s Emerald City Comic Con, and my Sub Press edition of McCammon’s Wolf’s Hour is Number Two.

            I don’t believe that I have any other low numbers.

              I wonder if your source for that was the same as my source for my #2 of Wolf’s Hour.

                I bought mine from somebody named Mark Vach.

                  I've never received that low of a number or letter before. I really don't think much about it. I occasionally see books up for sale where one of the selling points is that it is number 1 or letter A and the price is bumped up due to this, but I always shake my head and move on. While getting a low number or letter might be a fun surprise, I wouldn't pay extra for it.

                    I believe my lowest number is 15 for DRP's Special Edition of BIRD BOX. My Doubleday Years number is 34 which is pretty low. But also a very Chicago number to have.

                      With CD #1 used to be a lifetime member. I think we either bought their membership back when they stopped collecting, or sadly they died. These days I'm pretty sure one of the board members here collects #1's. They can name themself, but there is one person who regularly requests #1.

                        Agreed.

                            I could be wrong but I think it is T-Dogz_AK47.

                              I have no idea what the lowest book number I have is but I a pretty sure I do but have a #1. Something completely different though. The first year Cemetery Dance offered the CDCC it included a membership card and they issued member numbers based on timestamp of the order. I ordered as soon as I got the email and my CDCC membership card is #2.
