    X-Men #3 (Marvel, 1964) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. The third issue for the Merry Mutants brought the first appearance of the Blob. The "plus-size" supervillain would battle the X-Men many times, especially once he joined the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. There's also more on the personalities of the group, including one of the most infamous thought balloons in Marvel history, with Professor X declaring his undying love for Jean Grey! Let's just say Stan Lee was still fleshing out the character. Jack Kirby cover and art. This is an outstanding copy, all the more so considering the white cover. Only three copies of this issue have been certified with higher grades by CGC to date. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $1,350. CGC census 12/04: 7 in 9.4, 3 higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.
