So my apologies if this isn't allowed. I skimmed the rules, it says substantial commercial transactions are restricted, this would be my first, however i didn't see any WTB threads, so again, if this is prohibited, my apologies. That said, if this is ok, I'm looking to procure a ASM 121 for my personal collection. Slabbed, 9.0 at the least. I'm still just browsing, right now, but I am actively interested. If you "know a guy" or "are the guy," lmk. Thanks!

If you search 'wtb', you find a WTB thread. https://forum.cbcscomics.com/topic/4732/page/6/the-want-to-buy-thread-wtb/

@stanley1883 I've got one of these on ComicLink, an absolutely beautiful 9.2 copy. The main flaw is a very small printer pull on the bottom-center of the back cover, which was enough to keep the grade down. Other than that, it's pretty much flawless and presents very well, with white pages.

The story on this comic is, I bought it from a guy on eBay last year, he inherited a TON of comics from his uncle, who was a hoarder. His uncle didn't read them; just bought them (mostly in the early 70's) and stored them as an investment. So this particular comic - in fact, all of his comics - has never been read, if you believe his story. (And I didn't have any reason not to. The guy wasn't really knowledgeable about comics ... just sold 3-5 every week until they were all gone.)

Its a very nice copy, and good luck with the auction, but its a tad rich for my blood. If it doesnt sell, lmk and perhaps we can negotiate?

@stanley1883 I may have a buyer for you - lol

He bought my Marvel Tales #98 (which is a ASM 121 homage/repirnt) CGC 9.6 for $100 and then cancelled. He thought it was ASM #121 CGC 9.6 which he could get for $100 and got a bit upset when he realized that he had not done the deal of the year

A quick EBay search turned up this: https://m.ebay.com/itm/Amazing-Spider-Man-121-CBCS-9-0-lee-romita-Jr-Not-CGC-PGX/183132784976?hash=item2aa3908950:g:fI8AAOSwUWBarYN~
If I were looking for another one I would consider this. I would recommend checking the graders notes first (of course).
