These light blue covers are crazy for dirt.  CCS did a decent job but I wish it was cleaner.  Ahh well I still love it.

I'm gonna toss my hat in the ring for #13.  Seems to be harder to find than most of the early issues in decent shape and first appearance of the Watcher.

 Classic cover, too.

FF 13 is one of the few Marvel issues that Ditko inked a Kirby drawn interior (Hulk 2 being the other I can think of).

There's more, but not enough for my liking. Ditko inked Kirby numerous times in the pre-hero monster books (Amazing Adventures, JIM, TOS, TTA and Strange Tales), though nowhere near as much as Ayers. He inked him twice in Battle, one Gunsmoke Western (can’t recall if it was cover and interior), the cover of FF #14, backup stories in FF Annual #1 and ASM #8.

FF67, FF Annual 6 watch out for these

FF129 has to have potential at some point IMO

FF67 is significantly going up in value in the last 3 months. Any new spec on Adam Warlock?

FF 28 ran concurrently with X-Men 6 (You can tell by Marvel Girl's cool headgear which was only used that month I believe).  ToS 49 ran in the same month as X-Men 3 though.  It also features the X-Men heavily with some of the only Ditko art on the team as well.

Looks like a sure fire 7.5-8.0 unless there's something wrong with the back cover. Submit and submit.

Looks great, especially with the white cover. Unless you're looking to sell, I'd keep it as it is.

And the Giant-Man story in TTA #50.

What he said.

After you target the mega-keys like 1, 2, 4, 5, 12 and 20 and then medium-keys like 3 (which I would consider a mega anyhow) and 6, and then you start picking off some minor keys like first Watcher and Ant-Man cameo and Molecule Man's debut, you might as well grab 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, or whatever few others remain! It's unlike any other SA run, with the possible exception of ASM (which I think it still sufficiently eclipses).  2c

Wait, you called #20 a mega-key and then you said Molecule Man's debut (which is #20) is a mini-key.  I would put #18 in that first list before #20, though of course it's not quite at the level of #12, much less the rest of your mega-key list.

Does the market recognize 1st appearances of worlds as key? Fantastic Four #16 features the first appearance of the Quantum Realm.
