This is true for most collecting. Coins, stamps, toys etc if it's manufactured to a standard then an off piece will be more valuable to those who put value in them simply because they are more rare.

Maps are a 2 dimensional representation of a 3 dimensional world and were often used as political tools/ propaganda. The Mercator Projection depicts people further from the equator to have more land then they actually do and probably propelled power by those that used it.
