    Description

    Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. A true milestone in the Silver Age, and the book that really established Marvel as a worthy contender to take on DC's long-standing dominance of the superhero market. In a typically cunning move, Stan Lee brought in the already-established Fantastic Four to guest-star in the Web-Slinger's premiere issue, and their appearance on the brilliantly-designed cover (a rare Kirby/Ditko team-up) is a perfect contrast with the more free-wheeling attitude of Spider-Man. In addition to the FF appearance, this issue also features a brief re-telling of Spidey's origin, and the debuts of J. Jonah Jameson and the Chameleon. This is a very attractive copy of this landmark issue, with a very small crease in the lower right corner, and very light edge wear being the only elements keeping this from a higher grade; there is no "Marvel chipping" to be found. A truly beautiful copy, this would be a fine addition to any high-grade Spider-Man collection. Overstreet 2003 VF/NM 9.0 value = $20,675; NM 9.4 value = $32,000.
