Top 15 prices for comic books in Heritage Auctions’ March Comics Auction went to lots carrying CGC grades.


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
