    Tales of Suspense #1 (Atlas, 1959) CGC FN+ 6.5 White pages. We don't see this first issue very often, and this copy is one of the better ones in captivity (none has been graded higher than 7.5 to date). When you think of Al Williamson, Atlas/Marvel is not the publisher that comes to mind, but Amiable Al (that's his official Marvel nickname, we looked it up) contributed art to this issue. The rest of the lineup is made up of tried-and-true Bullpen stalwarts John Buscema, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, and Larry Lieber. The cover is by Heck. Overstreet 2005 FN 6.0 value = $411; VF 8.0 value = $1,165. CGC census 12/05: 2 in 6.5, 2 higher.

    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.
