    Description

    The Amazing Spider-Man #42 (Marvel, 1966) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. This may be the crown jewel of the entire Sarley collection when it comes to sheer eye appeal. Purple covers tend to be the toughest to find in the highest grades, so this unblemished copy is really something special. This issue has one of the most memorable panels in the history of comics, when on the last page Mary Jane Watson's face is shown for first time, and no comic fan can forget her famous line: "Face it, Tiger... you just hit the jackpot!" John Romita Sr. cover and art. Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $450. CGC census 8/11: 4 in 9.8, none higher. From the Edward M. Sarley Collection.
