2017 MARKET UPDATE:
When I was tipping this book two years ago, a CGC 9.8 copy came up for $1,300. I advised a reader to snap it up. Just a week or so ago, a similar 9.8 sold for $2,100.
Like all Bronze Age key issue comic books, you need to stick to high grade. Still, it's enjoying price bumps in most grades above VF 8.0.
John Byrne's classic run on the Bronze Age X-Men comic has become legendary.
Jean Grey, who eventually becomes Phoenix, is a truly key member of the super-team and important in all the major storylines.
This is truly deserving of a place in the most valuable Bronze Age comic books, prices in high grades are strongly rising, and it's a must-buy if you are at all optimistic of Marvel reclaiming ownership of the X-Men movie franchise and bringing Phoenix to the big screen.
