Fantastic Four #1 White Mountain pedigree (Marvel, 1961) CGC NM- 9.2 White pages. By far the best copy Heritage has ever offered of the first Silver Age Marvel comic book. When this copy was offered in the 1993 Sotheby's auction it was proclaimed "the finest condition copy ever offered at auction." The final auction price of $27,600 would have been a record at the time for a Silver Age book if not for the White Mountain Amazing Fantasy #15 in that same auction.

It's the origin and first appearance of the Fantastic Four, Marvel's first superhero team, with cover and interior art by Jack Kirby. The main Silver Age Marvel keys are soaring in value, and this is not only in a grade almost impossible to find for this issue, it's a pedigree copy to boot. A blue-chip book by any standard.

Overstreet 2012 NM- 9.2 value = $90,000. CGC census 7/12: 2 in 9.2, 5 higher. From the Doug Schmell / Collection.
