    The Amazing Spider-Man #3 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. This is the first appearance of Doctor Octopus and Spidey's first full-length story. The Human Torch even makes an appearance. Take notice of how black the blacks are on this copy (you'll see what we mean when you look at it)! While this might not get as much attention as the #4 or 5 that we're offering in this same run, those books shouldn't overshadow what could be the crown jewel of many a "Spidey" run. Cover art by Steve Ditko. Currently tied at #33 on Overstreet's Top 50 Silver Age Comics list. Overstreet 2018 NM- 9.2 value = $11,000. CGC census 2/19: 19 in 9.2, 18 higher. From the Black Mask Collection.
