Led by one of the finest known copies of the issue in which Spider-Man made his first appearance, the top 15 prices for comic books in Heritage Auctions’ Comics Auction March 5-7 in Dallas, Texas went to lots carrying CGC grades.

Nearly 40 collectors made bids for Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages until it sold for $795,000 to claim top-lot honors in the sale. The issue is widely considered the most desirable, in-demand book from the Silver Age, and finding a copy in such exceptional condition is next to impossible: the offered copy is one of six with a CGC grade of 9.4, and there are only four known to carry a higher grade.

Other top CGC-graded results in the sale included, but were not limited to:

Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white to white pages: $288,000

Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages: $186,000

Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC VG 4.0 Off-white to white pages: $117,000

Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC FR/GD 1.5 Cream to off-white pages: $90,000

Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages: $81,000
