Amazing Spider-Man 85 CGC 9.8 W ONLY 1 NM/MINT EVER SOLD! Kingpin 1970 VERY RARE
This exceptional copy was strictly graded by CGC and boasts phenomenal eye appeal. FOR THE PICKIEST COLLECTOR, THIS GEM HAS SHARP CORNERS, EXACT CENTERING, SUPERIOR STRUCTURE, PURE WHITE PAPER, HEAVY GLOSS, AND BLINDING COLORS IT GETS NO BETTER THAN THIS FOLKS! OVER THE ENTIRE PAST NINETEEN YEARS , ONLY ONE EXAMPLE OF THIS FAMOUS ISSUE SURFACED IN THIS CENSUS-TOPPING SHAPE.
BUT NOTE, MOST 9.8's CANNOT MATCH THE SPOT-ON CENTERING NOR THE SUPER-BOLD COLORS OF THIS EXEMPLARY SPECIMEN. IT'S BEEN OVER EIGHT YEARS SINCE THE LAST 9.8 SIGHTING, AND WITH BUT A SINGLE TOTAL PRIOR DOCUMENTED SALE IN THIS ELUSIVE GRADE, I WOULD NOT HOLD MY BREATH EXPECTING TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME IF ANOTHER TOP-GRADE EXAMPLE SURFACES IN THE NEXT COUPLE DECADES. ALTHOUGH THEY DID ONCE SELL THE ORIGINAL ART TO THE ICONIC FRONT COVER BY JOHN ROMITA FOR OVER 71 GRAND, SO YOU KNOW IT'S A TRUE CLASSIC! AS MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE, THE PRICES OF EARLY SPIDEY COMICS IN TOP GRADES HAVE CLIMBED DRAMATICALLY IN THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO ASCERTAIN A FAIR MARKET VALUE FOR THIS, ONE OF THE RAREST ISSUES OF THE ENTIRE SILVER-BRONZE ERA IN THIS NEAR-MYTHICAL SHAPE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, EXTREMELY FEW LUCKY COLLECTORS WILL EVER GET TO MAKE THE'FINAL UPGRADE' TO A GEM LIKE THIS.
CLASSIC'SPIDEY TRAPPED' COVER WITH KINGPIN AND THE SCHEMER! THIS COMIC IS SUITABLE FOR EVEN THE FINEST COLLECTION: Superb color and gloss, and sharp corners, with no arrival date nor other markings.
This investment-grade book comes from a cool dry dark pet-free non-smoking environment. GREAT COVER WITH THE WEB-SLINGER WRAPPED UP IN A RATHER WEB-LIKE NET.
THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FAN OF MINT CALIBER GEMS. SO THIS IS SPECIAL CHANCE FOR THE FELLOW'MINT FREAK' TO OBTAIN SOME UPGRADES! This book is well known to fans and dealers alike as an important Stan Lee issue featuring the ever-popular'Wallcrawler' along with the maniacal might of Kingpin. The unforgiving jet black background of the cover provides great contrasts and is a treat to behold when it's unblemished by such pesky detractors as creases & spine-stresses. The webslinger is already a household name around the globe, thanks in part to the smash-hit films and record-setting DVD sales and all the toys and videogames and statues and animation and action-figures and clothing and plethora of other licensed merchandise, bringing the love of the character to still more generations of fans; Another Spider-Man film dominated theaters recently, and he has appeared in other Marvel Universe films as well, plus another Spidey movie is anticipated very soon...
It doesn't get any more "Blue Chip" than this! ALWAYS HOT, BUT TOP-GRADED SPECIMENS OF THIS FIFTEEN-CENT MARVEL COMIC ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO OBTAIN. We are also now offering other pristine CGC Marvels, plus rare comic art; And we'll be offering hundreds of other collectable comics in the next few months. A lot has happened with Marvel comics in the half-a-century since this gem came out, adding more allure to the iconic and oft-reprinted vintage issues such as this; so I don't suggest waiting around until these crucial books have gone through the roof.... Professionally-graded high grade specimens of this hot issue are always in demand, but are virtually never seen in the market.
In such a well-preserved state with a brand-new appearance like this! This is a TOP C. CERTIFIED investment that you can show and display proudly, without worrying about damage or degradation of the bone-white paper, thanks to the benefit of professional Comic Guaranty Corporation encapsulation.
With demand that exceeds supply, premium prices often occur when a best-of-the-best such as this finally reaches the market.

If you are a discriminating Marvel collector, serious CGC-graded comics investor, or just a devout Spiderman collector, and prefer unrestored certified books without significant flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity. It looks less appealing in the disappointing picture, with lots of glare and haze from our scanner, but in person the book looks spectacular and the super bright colors really leap out at you! The conservative Overall CGC Universal Grade is NEAR MINT/MINT; --it looks flawless from outside the clear new archival CGC case!
This extra bright clean copy sports the new Blue Unrestored CGC Label; --And the fresh CGC case is unblemished, with no scuffs or cracks.
