Colorado Kid 1st edition

1st Edition Cover





  • A first edition of 1,000,000 copies. Issued as a mass market paperback for $5.99. At this point only the first edition exists. No additional printings are planned at this time. Price = $10 - $20

 

From a recent eBay auction, I have not independatnly verified it.

This title is identified as a first printing by having 3 (Three) sets of UPC numbers on the back over. The necessary numbers to identify and insure a first printing are "50599" above the 5 digit UPC to the right of the larger bar-code. The "50599" with corresponding bar-code is the identifier needed. Later printings will have a different number. Please note: the apha-numeric "HCC-013" on the copyright page is NOT an accurate identifier for a first printing. The "HCC-013" is present on later printings as well. The only identification point for a first edition, first printing is the 5 digit UPC code "50599".

PLEASE NOTE:

This information has been confirmed with Mr. Charles Ardi of Hard Case Publishing. As best as anyone can tell - including the publisher - the above information is accurate and the only way to identify a first edition, first printing. Prior to publication, Hard Case mailed out 3 x 5 cards with the graphics for the front and rear covers of the book. These 3 x 5 cards are identical to the book we are offering. This, then, is the earliest known state of the book. Mr. Gary Shulze, owner of "Once Upon A Crime" in Minneapolis, Minnesota,  a dedicated collector of the "Hard Case" editions, confirmed this information - via e-mail - with Mr. Charles Ardi of Hard Case Publishing. We have been authorized to attch this information to this listing.
