GMK Red Alert by Team Hammer. Are they rare?

I don't see them in Reddit. Looks like they are rare?

This is the set that was run by Photekq in 2015.  Would be considered fairly "rare".  They were sold in batches from China, so I'd wager there are only 200 or so in the US today.

There is a new GMK Red Alert running in a few days from now with the same color CP/U9 base.  But the red will be different in the new version. 

So yeah, fairly rare.  Seems a bit steep on the price though.  Maybe somewhere in the $250 ballpark would be a fair deal.

(Full disclosure: I'm the GB runner for the upcoming GMK Red Alert run, March 5th to April 9th. Running it for reasons stated by pixel - the set is never publicly available. As pixel said, I'm using a different stock GMK red for my run.)

Whoa, this is a classic! You can even see the blank concave 1u mods at the bottom. The set might be a bit steeply priced, but this lot is most interesting for the historical "JOKER" and Hammer novelties. My understanding is that those are two of the first novelties ever offered with a custom keyset.

So $299 could be reasonable, although if honestly you're not interested in the associated history I do recommend waiting for my set.
