Item Description


TOP-GRADED TWELVE-CENT SPIDEY COMIC! This exceptional copy hails from the recently discovered Canarsie Collection and was strictly graded by CGC and boasts phenomenal eye appeal.  THIS IS THE HISTORIC ISSUE WITH KA-ZAR AND HIS SABERTOOTH TIGER ZABU BY THE LEGENDARY CREATIVE TEAM OF STAN LEE AND JOHN ROMITA.   FOR THE PICKIEST COLLECTOR, THIS PEDIGREE GEM HAS SHARP CORNERS, EXACT CENTERING, PEFECT ALIGNMENT, SUPERIOR STRUCTURE, BONE WHITE PAGES, BLINDING COLORS, AND A DESIRABLE PROVENANCE ~IT GETS NO BETTER THAN THIS FOLKS! THUS FAR, BESIDES THE TWIN CITIES PEDIGREE EXAMPLE, A GRAND TOTAL OF ONE COPY HAS EVER SURFACED IN THIS CENSUS-TOPPING SHAPE. (OF COURSE, MOST 9.8's CANNOT MATCH THE SPOT-ON CENTERING OF THIS EXEMPLARY SPECIMEN.) The stunning comic-books from the Canarsie pedigree were purchased at the now defunct Canarsie Comics shop in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, New York, hence the nickname “Canarsie Collection.” The well-preserved collection of about 650 Marvels features deep runs of mainstream Silver into Bronze Age superhero titles such as Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers, Captain America, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and Journey Into Mystery/Thor. The collection also consists of smaller groups of issues from Captain Marvel, Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD, Silver Surfer, Tales to Astonish, and X-Men. The average grade of the books is 9.2 to 9.4 but there are many 9.6 and 9.8 examples. Almost every book has either off-white to white or white page quality and immaculate structure. There are many high grade Silver and Bronze Age keys, first appearance issues, and deep runs of favorite Marvel titles in the collection. THE BUY IT NOW PRICE FOR THIS, PERHAPS THE MOST DESIRABLE COPY EXTANT, IS CERTAINLY A BARGAIN, AND IT'S PROBABLY THE FIRST TIME A CGC 9.8 OF THIS SCARCE-ABOVE-NM+ ISSUE HAS EVER BEEN OFFERED ON EBAY;  THIS IS POSSIBLY A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE THE VERY BEST OF THE BEST.   THIS COMIC IS SUITABLE FOR EVEN THE FINEST COLLECTION:  Superb color and gloss, and sharp corners.  This investment-grade book comes from a cool dry dark pet-free non-smoking environment, and includes my original purchase invoice designating the Canarsie Collection provenance. GREAT COVER, BY PERHAPS THE MOST POPULAR ARTIST TO EVER ILLUSTRATE THE WEB-SLINGER, JOHN ROMITA. THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FAN OF MINT CALIBER GEMS.  MANY OF THE SPIDERMAN AND X-MEN AND OTHER BACK-ISSUE MARVELS WE ARE CURRENTLY OFFERING ARE TOP GRADED OR RUNNER-UP ON THE CURRENT CGC CENSUS...  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 issue featuring the ever-popular 'Wallcrawler' and Kazar.  The unforgiving white 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 charater to still more generations of fans;  A new Amazing Spider-Man film dominated theaters recently, and more Spidey movies are expected in the coming years...  It doesn't get any more "Blue Chip" than this!    This original first-print comic-book WILL find a new home, as the Buy It Now price is low and there is NO RESERVE!  ALWAYS HOT, BUT WITH JUST ONE NON-PEDIGREE COPY AND THE TWIN CITIES COPY AS THE SOLE 9.8's TO SURFACE IN THE MARKET OVER THE PAST FIFTEEN YEARS, TOP-GRADED SPECIMENS OF THIS TWELVE-CENT MARVEL COMIC ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO OBTAIN. The smudges and hazy areas you see below are from the scanner glass, not the slab or comic, plus there are reflections and glare, all of which is not evident when viewing the actual book in person.  (There are no cracks and no scratches on the CGC holder, either.)  We are also now offering DOZENS of other pristine CGC Marvels, plus rare comic art; And we'll be offering hundreds of other collectable comics in the next few months.  Check out our ebay items regularly!  A lot has happened with Marvel comics in the almost-five decades 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 minty specimens of this hot issue are always in demand, but are virtually never seen in the market, in such a well-preserved state with incredible luster and great colors like this!   This is a TOP C.G.C.-CERTIFIED investment that you can show and display proudly, without worrying about damage or degradation of the nice supple clean paper, thanks to the benefit of professional Comic Guaranty Corporation encapsulation. With demand that exceeds supply, premium prices can be expected when a best-of-the-best such as this finally reaches the market.  The Buy It Now price is set low, so don't delay! Great cover colors; And the gloss is phenomenal, which must be seen in person to be appreciated.  If you are a discriminating Marvel collector, serious CGC-graded comics investor, or just a devout Spiderman or Ka-Zar collector, and prefer unrestored certified books without visible flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity.  It looks less appealing in the disappointing pictures, 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 plastic CGC case! This extra bright clean copy sports the Blue Unrestored CGC Label;  --And the CGC case is unblemished, with no scuffs or cracks. * GORGEOUS PEDIGREE SPECIMEN *

HIGHEST CGC GRADED, WITH EXACT FRAMING.   Published by Marvel Comics in late 1967 as the February, 1968, first-printing.   This comic contains fresh supple clean pages, with deep rich colors and great printing registration on both the front & back covers.  Even the staples are still shiny!  Sorry about the glare-filled images, due to our scanner and the thick protective CGC case; The actual item looks fabulous and has uniform bright colors that you simply must see in person to appreciate.
