    X-Men #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. Stan Lee was just about done with his initial phase-in of the Marvel Age when this premiere issue came out in late 1963. There were some ups and downs in the early years, but since 1975, when the revamped lineup re-invigorated the title, it has rivaled The Amazing Spider-Man as Marvel's most popular title. Stan called on his big gun, Jack Kirby, to do the cover and interior art for the first issue, which had the origin and first appearance of the X-Men (the Angel, the Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, and Marvel Girl), as well as first appearances of Professor X and Magneto. High-grade copies of this white-background cover are highly-prized; don't let this one slip by! Overstreet 2007 VF 8.0 value = $6,300; VF/NM 9.0 value = $11,400. CGC census 10/07: 25 in 8.5, 28 higher.
