    The Amazing Spider-Man #121 (Marvel, 1973) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. Of the hundreds of copies of this issue that have been sent into CGC, only 2 have been given the NM/MT 9.8 grade! Few comics in the entire history of comics have achieved the kind of milestone status as this one has. This issue featured the death of Gwen Stacy, which rocked the Marvel Universe. Beloved comic characters had died before, but the creators had always found a way to bring them back, and the last page of this issue stunned the reader. This issue was released at at time when the reader/collector had no advance notice of story plots, as is now the case. Amazing Spider-Man #122 seemed to take forever to hit the spinner racks, and continued to stagger the reader. The fortunate buyer of this exquisite copy will have a true showpiece part of any collection of historic comics. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $185.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
