Auction of first part of John Fantucchio's collection closes tonight

John is survived by his wife Mary, of Arlington who is consigning these.

Closing Today: A Truly Amazing Spider-Man Run!

Among the Featured Auction lots that start closing this evening at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific is one of the best groupings of Spider-Man comic books to ever surface within in a single auction. The selection is led by an rare Near Mint range example of Amazing Fantasy #15 (1st Spider-Man) CBCS 9.0, a strong CGC 7.5 of the same important issue, and examples from a recently coined Silver Age pedigree collection featuring Amazing Spider-Man #1 (CGC 9.0) to #52 as well as Annual #1 (and don't forget the rare Strange Tales Annual #2 in CGC 9.4 closing on a subsequent evening).


The headliner is the exceptional Amazing Fantasy #15 example you see to your left. Certified by CBCS at the VFNM 9.0 tier – it's got an unusually fresh look from front to back, even for a 9.0!


This auction offers our bidders first shot at Amazing Spider-Man #1-#52 (plus ASM Annual #1 and Strange Tales Annual #2) from the newly coined John G. Fantucchio Collection--a CGC recognized "pedigree" collection stretching back to the early Silver Age. When these were removed from the estate late last year, it was the first time, figuratively speaking, that they had seen the light of day since they were acquired off of the newsstand 50+ years ago! These high-grade books have striking visual appeal, newsstand-fresh colors and nearly all of them still have white interior page preservation. View Collection Lots
