    The Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Since our first Comics auction in 2001, we've seen just three copies graded higher than this gem. Considering that the prices realized for others in NM 9.4 have steadily increased from the first copy we sold in 2004 ($55,900) to the most recent copy we sold in 2016 ($110,537.50), we expect to set a record for the highest auction price for this issue in this grade. It's the premiere issue of the eponymous title, the second appearance of Marvel's most popular creation after his initial appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 some six months prior. Spider-Man's origin is retold and there are first appearances of John Jameson, J. Jonah Jameson, and the Chameleon, plus the first crossover appearance of the Fantastic Four. Steve Ditko cover and art. Currently ranks #7 on Overstreet's list of Top 50 Silver Age Comics. Overstreet 2017 NM- 9.2 value = $68,000. CGC census 11/17: 10 in 9.4, 6 higher. From the Douglas Schmell Collection.
