Slabbed Amazing Spider-Man Keys FS: 6, 9, 13, 14, 15 & 2010956

Collector 00slim private msg quote post Address this user
First, the fine print. Each book is priced shipped within the continental U.S., fully insured.

Payment VIA PayPal Goods & Services.

I will be as up-front as possible about the condition of each book. I have (753) 100% positive feedback on e-bay. I want you to be happy with the transaction and will work with you if any unforeseen circumstances arise but I would like to avoid buyer’s remorse as a cause for a return. So please be sure you want the book before making an offer.

If we’ve never done business before and you need a reference, I’ll be happy to provide one.

I am not entertaining trades at this time, unless you’ve got a TOS 39 you’re looking to sell. That’s where any money from the sale of these books is going.

Claim books here, or PM any offers.

Amazing Spider-Man #6 (1st appearance of The Lizard) CBCS 3.5 Off-White/White Pages.

$550

The label notes: 1 Piece of tape on interior cover.

GRADER’S NOTES:
spine wear & stress breaks color
wear & marvel chipping to front cover edges, some breaks color
1 piece of tape on 2" tear top left interior front cover
1" sticker residue stain with tape pull top right front cover, many stains & fingerprint smudges to cover
creasing & wear to cover edges, some breaks color

The “Marvel chipping” to the cover is the most notable flaw to the cover but given these notes, this book presents very nicely.














Amazing Spider-Man #9 (1st appearance of Electro) CGC 3.0 Off-White Pages.

$400

I don’t have note for this one, since I purchased it graded but the bottom left corner of the cover shows the most wear. The back cover shows tanning & there’s a piece missing from the top-left corner of the back cover.











Amazing Spider-Man #13 (1st appearance of Mysterio) CGC 3.5 Off-White/White Pages

$500

GRADER’S NOTES:

moderate bends to cover
moderate creasing to cover
moderate spine stress lines to cover
water stain left bottom of front cover through book

The water stain noted is most clearly seen on the bottom-right corner of the back cover.











Amazing Spider-Man #14 (1st appearance of The Green Goblin) CGC 4.5 WHITE Pages

With the WHITE Pages, I’m asking a little more for this book. $1600

GRADER’S NOTES: light staining to cover
light tears to cover
moderate creasing to cover
moderate spine stress lines to cover

I thought this would come back 5.0 for sure. She’s a beauty. The blunted bottom-left corner may have brought it down.











Amazing Spider-Man #15 (1st appearance of Kraven The Hunter) CGC 4.5 WHITE Pages

With the WHITE Pages, I’m asking $775.00

GRADER’S NOTES:

heavy wear full top of front cover breaks color
spine stress lines breaks color
subscription crease whole book breaks color

The flaws with this one are rather apparent. Especially along the top of the cover. The colors really pop, though.

I do suspect we’ll see Kraven in the MCU in the near future.











Amazing Spider-Man #20 (1st appearance of The Scorpion) CGC 4.5 Off-White/White Pages

Asking $400

GRADER’S NOTES:

large, multiple crease front cover breaks color
light, multiple stain back cover
spine stress lines breaks color

For the grade, this one presents wonderfully. Much nicer than the notes would suggest, anyway.










I also have a ASM #5 (Doctor Doom appearance) (4.5/5.0 ?) but I’ll get that one slabbed before I offer it for sale.

Really great stuff, I'm jealous. I really want to make a move on a decent #13 one of these days but at this point, I'd be happy with any.

Good luck on the sales!

Actually I think Burt signing the ASM 14 book brought it down from a 5.0 to a 4.5. 😁

Seriously, Wish I could buy it as it’s one of my grails...Maybe I’ll give up 75% of my collection for a shot at it some day...

X-Men 2 would be cool for sure, but yes, I have a goal in mind.

I’ll be offering books for trade or trade + cash in the future (you guys are awesome about that) but this is a different situation, unfortunately.

I’m pretty sure that sig could slide by with a 5.0. 😆

yeah thats why I never said anything, although it might be a thought that it would be easier to move an x men 2 high grade is all...if you find yourself sitting on the spidey awhile.
My copy might well press out to an 8.0 and worth double the price you are asking, which would have given you some serious firepower against a TOS nicer grade.


Anyways, I do wish you a ton of luck with it all and hope you get a nice TOS 39..they are neat books to own and not as common as people think

Appreciate the thought. I’ll keep it in mind. 👍🏼

Those early Spidey books are incredible! You can't go wrong with 1st appearance Spidey books...Spidey is king at Marvel and Marvel is king in comics.

Though the Grader’s Notes for #15 mention “heavy wear full top of front cover breaks color“, I don’t think it shows very clearly in the pics I provided. With that in mind, I wanted to include this additional pic.

Still a beautiful book, I just didn’t want to unintentionally misrepresent it.

If you guys spot a TOS 39 with these criteria, please let me know:

- As close to a slabbed 4.0 as possible. (3.0-3.5 is ok. I can upgrade later).

- Off-White Pages minimum

- Universal grade with no caveats on the label (no detached cover, tape, etc.).

I’m hoping to do an all cash transaction if these ASM books sell. But, if I have to put some on a card and pay it off after they do, that’s fine.

Dale Roberts Comics has a CGC 2.5 that I briefly considered, but it looks rough even for a 2.5.

Any leads would be appreciated.

I saw these, but I’m considering making an offer on this one. Can I get some second opinion on it?

Anything I should take into consideration I may be missing?

@00slim - Did you see the 3.5 copy with off-white pages on ebay for $5,799.99 or best offer? It does have tape noted on the label.

And THIS is why I needed a second pair of eyes on this. The listing does mention the tape, but I missed it. I saw the “no other CGC notes” line and overlooked the other notation.

Thanks, guys!

It was nice of that guy to include it in his eBay description. It would be even nicer if CGC would include it for anyone to check out.

I just made a phone call to an old family friend who bought out a comic shop probably 15 years ago.

He was in the market for some mega keys back then. I talked to his wife & she said she’d ask him if he has a TOS 39 & if so, if he’d be interested in selling?

Fingers crossed.

It actually is on the label, the seller just didn’t include a close-up of the label. When there’s a caveat on the label like that, it’s common courtesy as a seller to post a pic of it.

@00slim Is that on the back in the top right? I can see that there's text there but can't read it at all.

CGC puts it on the front below the date.

The pics are very low resolution, so it’s nearly impossible to read. That’s why I’m glad someone saw it.
