    Marvel Comics #1 (Timely, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. Marvel #1's first print run was a sellout, prompting a second printing that involved blacking out the October date and placing "NOV" above it. This copy is from the rarer first printing, and has excellent printing registration, something also rarely found on Marvel #1. The front cover has a sharp look to it, with a penciled name in the logo. The back cover exhibits most of the damage, including a 1.5" tear at the top, a couple of corner creases and light soiling. A slight spine roll exists, but the spine itself is in great condition. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $16,667; FN 6.0 value = $50,000.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
