Why Amazing Spider-Man #50 is a Hot Comic

2018 MARKET UPDATE: KINGPIN IS STILL A HOT ANTI-HERO!

I really thought this book had peaked. It has not sold in super-high grade for a while, but otherwise we're still seeing strong returns when we sell ours.

Our recommended grade of CGC 9.0 did well, returning 17 percent in the past 12 months. Recent sales:

  • CGC 9.2: $3,500
  • CGC 9.0 $2,350
  • CGC 8.5 $1,350
  • CGC 7.5 $650
  • CGC 6.0 $450
  • CGC 5.0 $320
  • CGC 4.0 $265

2017 MARKET UPDATE:

Kingpin's role in the Daredevil TV series on Netflix has catapulted a previously under-valued Silver Age key issue into the stratosphere.

However, there is a plentiful supply of lower grade books. Stick to comics in fine or better shape if you want to see returns on your investment.

  • CGC 9.2: $2,600
  • CGC 9.0 $1,700
  • CGC 8.5 $1,225
  • CGC 7.5 $675
  • CGC 6.0 $350

The Kingpin is one of the Spider-Man villains who has remained 'untapped' by the various movie treatments since the late 1990s.

Recent news that Marvel and Sony will team up on a second reboot make it likely that bad guys like Kingpin, the Vulture and maybe Doctor Doom may get their turn in the Spidey limelight.

In almost every collection of ASM that we're offered, this book is beaten to heck. Its dark red cover shows wear a lot, so you'll need to be very selective about the copy you invest in.

The jump from CGC 8.5 to 9.0 is not great, but the next step to 9.2 is over double, making 9.0 the best value.
