A high-grade copy of an iconic comic book has commanded an impressive sum on the auction block.
It’s one of only 11 copies of Amazing Fantasy No. 15, which is the first appearance of Spider-Man, and it sold for six figures via Dallas-based Heritage Auctions on Thursday night.
It went for $155,350, which is just shy of the typical $160K price for a CGC 9 copy, according to Heritage. There are only 20 copies of the book graded higher.
The landmark book is one of several notable items up for grabs as part of the three-day auction, which includes items ending tonight and Saturday. Among them is a Frank Frazetta oil painting, “Thor’s Flight,” which is at $100,000 but not yet closed (click for a closer view at right), an original Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-Man page at $60,000, an original MAD magazine page by Bill Elder at $55,000, an original Calvin and Hobbes strip from Bill Watterson at $48,000 and many others.
