    Description

    Fantastic Four #1 (Marvel, 1961) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. The second-most valuable comic of the Silver Age, and the one that started the Marvel Era. It's the origin and first appearance of the Fantastic Four, with a story by Stan Lee, and iconic cover and art by Jack Kirby. The book also has the first appearance and origin of the FF's first opponent, the Mole Man. The earliest version of the characters is fascinating: Reed Richards was a pipe-smoking scientist straight out of a monster mag, the Thing hadn't yet taken on the Yancy Street patois he was later known for, and the FF was strictly a plainclothes group with no costumes in sight. This is a solid copy of a major key that would be the centerpiece of almost any Marvel collection. Overstreet 2012 FN 6.0 value = $7,500; VF 8.0 value = $26,000. CGC census 11/12: 29 in 7.0, 42 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.
