Fantastic Four #1 Sells for $300,000

Comic Booked Guest Writer 05/18/2011 Features, Reviews

Stan Lee and the late great Jack Kirby, both icons in my eyes created the Fantastic Four for Marvel Comics. This iconic team, the Fantastic Four, not Lee and Kirby have spanned five decades of stories (six if you include the one we just started). Even after the death of the Human Torch and the FF letters standing for the Future Foundation show the times have changed.

At one point this copy of Fantastic Four #1 sold for 12 cents. The book was pristinely taken care of until it was sent to CGC for grading. They looked it over and graded the book a 9.4 with White Pages. Metropolis Collectibles reported the sale of this book for $300,000 to a private collector. This is the highest price to date ever paid for this book in a CGC certified 9.4. The last recorded price for a Fantastic Four CGC 9.4 sold in May 2010 for $210,000. There is currently only one graded as a 9.6 which has never been up for public sale. I am just curious as to what is next.

    I bet this title starts selling for even more than that in the near future. Guess that prices me out, hahaha!

    Amazing Fantasy #15 cracks the million dollar mark, but a 9.4-graded Fantastic Four #1 can't even do half that? Does that seem odd to anyone else?

    howdy;
    I have a Fantastic Four # 1…not the best condition,
    worn, yellow pages, and am willing to put up for
    auction…where do I go for that?
