    The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. It's been nearly four years since we've offered a copy this nice, but then there's not many copies in existence this nice! Collectors have come to expect evidence of "Marvel chipping" on these early '60s keys, so the razor-sharp right edge of this copy's front cover is simply stunning. This book at this grade at this time should ensure some of the most competitive bidding ever for a Silver Age issue!

    Currently ranked the fourth most valuable Silver Age comic book by Overstreet, it will probably overtake Showcase #4 within the next few years. Spider-Man's origin is retold is this premiere issue, which also has the first Fantastic Four crossover and first appearances of John Jameson, J. Jonah Jameson, and the Chameleon. Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko combined forces for the cover art with Ditko doing the interior, the beginning of his classic 38-issue run. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $44,000. CGC census 6/09: 5 in 9.4, 4 higher.
