CGC-Graded Prizes Headline Heritage Auctions’ Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction
Most of the top comic books in Heritage Auctions’ Comics & Comic Art Signature Auction Sept. 9-11, including more than 70 (by estimate) at the top of the sale, are CGC-graded comics, including one of the finest existing copies ofAmazing Fantasy #15 and the finest known copies of the first 150 Spider-Man comic books, each of which carries a CGC grade.
But Spidey is not the only CGC-graded star featured among the top attractions in the event.
Also offered are Batman #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages – according to the August 2021 CGC census, the offered copy is one of just four with a CGC grade of 6.5, with only 18 known with higher grades. A high-grade copy ofTales of Suspense #39 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages is nearly as rare; the same CGC census reports the offered copy is one of just 16 with a 9.2 grade, with only 26 carrying higher marks.
Other CGC-graded highlights include Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC VG 4.0 Off-white pages and X-Men #1 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages.
