Details about the book:

An absolutely stunning, well centred, bright and fresh looking copy of one of the biggest key books in the Marvel universe being offered in a NO RESERVE 10 day auction. This 1962 book predates most of the major Marvel keys and is much more difficult to find in higher grades than many of the other surrounding key Marvel books. Only Hulk #1 is a tougher book due to it's very dark cover.

This particular book is shockingly nice, appearing much nicer than the assigned grade and was expected to grade a 9.2. The front cover shows very nicely with a well preserved blue cover and strong reds, yellows and nice white cover stock. Back cover is clean and flawless. Featuring the first appearance of the Mighty Thor, this book is extremely difficult to find in higher grades. Demand has increased greatly since the success of both the Thor and Avengers movie franchise. We have included a scan of the book that was taken when it was still ungraded to show how nice the book actually is without the glare of the CGC holder. Rest assured, the book is now CGC graded as a 9.0.

This book has been on the rise lately as a CGC 9.4 copy sold for $222,000 this year.

Additionally CGC 9.2 copies have sold for $100,000 and $83,650 in the past year. 

There are also recorded sales of CGC 9.0 copies at $39,500 (In March of 2011, about 1.5 years ago) and a $50,000 sale last August/2011. We also personally a copy for $45,000 in August 2011 through our website.

With 8.0 prices in the $15,000-20,000 range and 8.5 copies in the $25,000-30,000 range that places this auction estimate in the $45,000-50,000 range.
