Where did the mutant team begin?

September 1963 saw their origin and first appearance in X-Men #1. A world record was set for a copy of this comic book in 2012!


X-Men #1 Sets World Record

X-Men comics #1: Origin and First Appearance of the X-Men. A CGC 9.8 sold for a record $492,000 in 2012.

There are plenty of copies of X-Men #1 available on the market. It is far from a rare comic book.

But in great condition, its value has rocketed. It's approaching $30,000 in 9.0 shape, and the prices get higher from there.

Highest price paid:
$492,000 (CGC 9.8)

Minimum value:
$500 (in really poor, but complete condition)

X-Men #2 Prices

X-Men comic #2: First appearance of The Vanisher, and a collectible comic

Like most Marvel Comics series, #1 is always the best comic to find.

X-Men #2 saw a new villain appear, The Vanisher. Apart from that, it's always nice to have the early issues of any series.

You will not struggle to find a new owner for your copy, especially if it's in fine or better condition.

Highest price paid:
$60,000 (CGC 9.8)

Minimum value:
$65 (really poor, but complete condition)

X-Men #3 Value

X-Men #3: First appearance of The Blob

Another difficult issue to find in fine shape because of its all-white cover.

X-Men #3 saw another new villain appear, The Blob. It's worth dramatically less than #1 or #2.

Still, it's a nice find it you happen to have one in top shape.

Highest price paid:
$16,000 (CGC 9.8)

Minimum value:
$50 (really poor, but complete condition)

Get your copy of X-Men #3 appraised by Sell My Comic Books.


X-Men Comics #4 Value

X-Men #4: first Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, second Magneto

X-Men #4 sees the second appearance of the dreaded Magneto, and the first appearance of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

Unusually, it's worth more than #3. I guess The Blob wasn't everybody's cup of tea?

Highest price paid:
$26,000 (CGC 9.8)

Minimum value:
$50 (really poor, but complete condition)

Get your copy of X-Men #4 appraised by Sell My Comic Books.


X-Men #5 Value

X-Men #5 is a nice comic book to find

It's pretty rare to find any early X-Men comics in really high grade, but #5, with its dark blue cover, shows damage a lot more than most.

X-Men #5 may not be a stand-out in the history of the super-team, but it's worth decent money, especially if you find one in 9.0 shape or better.

Highest price paid:
$10,000 (CGC 9.8)

Minimum value:
$30 (really poor, but complete condition)

X-Men #35: Amazing Spider-Man Crossover

X-Men comic #35: Amazing Spider-Man cover and crossover story

Most later X-Men issues are fairly run-of-the-mill, but X-Men #35 is worth mentioning.

Spider-Man is the most collected comic book character in the world, and anytime he appears in another popular series as a crossover, especially on the cover, it boosts the value of that edition.

Highest price paid:
$5,000 (CGC 9.8)

Minimum value:
$20 (really poor, but complete condition)

Two Surprising Later X-Men Issues

In common with most vintage comic book series, after #20 the value of X-Men issues falls of sharply.

Let's be clear. Anything in top comic grades is worth serious money: certainly hundreds, and occasionally a couple of thousand, dollars.

However, there are two 1970s X-Men comics that are worth much more than the issues around them.

Giant-Size X-Men #1: First New Team

Giant Size X-Men #1: second appearance Wolverine, first appearance new X-Men team

In the summer of 1975, Marvel Comics relaunched the X-Men in a comic that would become one of the most collectible comics ever published after 1970.

Giant-Size X-Men #1 introduced Colossus, Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Storm and Banshee to the X-Men. After a successful debut in Incredible Hulk #181 (see below), Wolverine also joined the team.

Highest price paid:
$12,750 (CGC 9.8)

NOTE: The value of this comic book has dropped rapidly in recent years, as more and more have entered the market. The average 9.8 price in 2012 was $4,500, and in 2013, $4,000.

Minimum value:
$50 (really poor, but complete condition)

X-Men #94: Second Appearance All-New Team

X-Men #94: origin and first appearance of the New X-Men team

After years of relative decline in their popularity, the X-Men team was relaunched with an all-new lineup in X-Men #94.

August 1975 saw Colossus, Nightcrawler, Thunderbird, Storm, Wolverine and Banshee join the X-Men, while Zngel, Marvel Girl and Iceman left the team.

Highest price paid:
$29,500 (CGC 9.8) NOTE: Again, the price of this issue has fallen as more copies enter the market. The average price of a 9.8 in 2012 was a shade under $9,000.

Minimum value:
$50 (really poor, but complete condition)

Get your copy of X-Men #94 appraised by Sell My Comic Books.

Incredible Hulk #181: First Wolverine

Incredible Hulk #181: first appearance Wolverine, who later joined the X-Men

Incredible Hulk #181 is a milestone comic.

Although it's not an actual X-Men comic, the first appearance of the hugely important character, Wolverine, has to be mentioned here.

He later joined the X-Men, first in Giant-Size X-Men #1, and then in X-Men #94. See above for prices on those two important bronze age comics.

Highest price paid:
$26,000 (CGC 9.8) NOTE: The price of 9.8s has dropped as more and more come onto the market. Average price in 2012 was around $9,000. I feel sorry for the person who paid $26K a few years ago!

You can expect around $10,000 for a 9.8 in 2014.

Minimum value:
$150 (really poor, but complete condition)

Get your copy of Incredible Hulk #181 appraised by Sell My Comic Books. We'll also value any earlier X-Men comics you happen to have!

Please note that Sell My Comic Books does not trade in comics later than 1985. Please don't ask us to value modern comics.
