    Description

    The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. The Sandman made his first appearance in this issue, which also tells the character's origin (this being a Stan Lee story, radiation was involved, natch). But the grainy villain isn't the only focus of the issue -- it's also time for love letters in the sand, as not one but two of Peter Parker's romantic interests make their debuts. One is Betty Brant, J. Jonah Jameson's put-upon secretary, the other is Midtown High cutie Liz Allen, and both are impeccably characterized by artist Steve Ditko. This NM copy has none of the "Marvel chipping" that can be such a thorn in the collector's side on these Silver Age books. Get this: unlike some of the other early Amazing issues, no grade higher than 9.4 has been assigned for #4 by CGC to date. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $3,800. CGC census 4/05: 8 in 9.4, none higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
