Amazing Fantasy #15

We just acquired a nice Silver Age collection of Marvel’s and DC’s from the 1962 to 1967 era, and with it, the Holy Grail of any Silver Age comic book collection, AMAZING FANTASY #15, featuring the 1st appearance of AMAZING SPIDERMAN! Front, back and centerfold scans can be viewed here. It’s really a nice looking key, with lots of integrity left. It’s also one of the tougher to grade keys we’ve had in some time, with this book falling somewhere in the nebulous region of Good+ 2.5 to G/VG 3.0. Here’s the condition breakdown: Original staples are completely adhered to spine, with an ever-so-slight 1/4 inch tear at the bottom of the spine. There is a 1/6 of an inch piece missing from the upper and lower right side of the cover, as you’ll notice in the scan. The back cover is missing a 1/4 inch piece from the bottom of the spine.  There is an ever so slight crease that goes from the top of the book above the “M” in the logo 2/3 through the cover and ends midway through Spider-man.  Being buried in between a stack of other comic books for the last 40 years has been a significant help for the book’s color luster. It’s quite nice. There is slight browning in the interior covers and inside pages, but not to the point of brittleness. Centerfold is intact, and no coupons have been clipped. Absolutely NO restoration has been performed on this key, having been tucked away for many a year until recently.  Current Overstreet places the value in the $5,000.00 to $5,200.00 range, but we’ll begin the bidding on this affordable gem at the Good price, which is $3,500.00.  The book goes on sale on eBay under Seller AMGiroux at 1 pm on Sunday, July 24th.   Priority mail with up to $4000.00 insurance and signature confirmation is $55.00, but of course the book can be picked up at our store if you are local.  International orders please inquire on shipping rates. Please email us with any specific questions, for all sales are FINAL on this gem. Good luck!
