    Fantastic Four #3 Curator pedigree (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. We had never offered a 9.0 copy of this one before, never mind a 9.2! Check out the airy blue background and compare the book to whatever smudgy grayish copy you have lying around, and you'll want to go after this upgrade.
    While this book doesn't sell cheap in any grade, you could argue that the values should be higher, as #3 introduces the signature look of these key characters. The first couple of issues looked more like a monster mag than a superhero book -- intentionally so, as Marvel hadn't published any costumed adventurers in a while. But here, not only did the FF don their signature costumes, the issue has the first appearance of the Baxter Building, the Fantasti-Car, and the Pogo Plane. Jack Kirby drew the glorious cover.
    Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $9,200. CGC census 2/12: 4 in 9.2, 3 higher.
