Amazing Fantasy #15 (1962). First appearance of Spider-Man
At Heritage Auctions with 6 days until end of bidding.
Okay, so my copy of the comic book is about half this one’s condition, but mine is signed by Stan Lee.
So I figger a few hundred thousand less than this floppies’ current bid.
The copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 graded 9.6 sold September 9, 2021 for $3,600,000.00
Considered to be the best-known copy of the 1962 issue with a 9.6 CGC rating, Amazing Fantasy #15 sold for $3.6 million. “What better book to break the record than the debut of Marvel’s most beloved character, Spider-Man?” Heritage Auctions Vice President Lon Allen said. “Amazing Fantasy No. 15 is the Action Comics No. 1 or Detective Comics No. 27 of the next generation.
Prior to Amazing Fantasy #15, the world record for a comic book sale belonged to DC’s Action Comics #1 — the first appearance of Superman — which sold for $3.25 million.
If my calculations are correct (and that’s not guaranteed) the winning bid was three million dollars with the buyer’s premium of 20% adding another six hundred thousand dollars to the final cost.
