    The Amazing Spider-Man #238 Double Cover (Marvel, 1983) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. We've seen demand for top-grade copies of this book skyrocket in the last year or so! And now we're privileged to offer a double cover copy, to boot. This is the most valuable 1980s issue of this title thanks to the first appearance of the Hobgoblin, who would become Spider-Man's deadliest foe in the ensuing years, and whose identity remained a mystery for quite some time. The cover and art were a collaboration of John Romita Sr. and John Romita Jr. And in case you were wondering, the "Tattooz" insert is included here. CGC notes, "First cover 9.6, interior cover 9.8." Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $95. CGC census 3/06: 42 in 9.8, 1 higher.
