Crazy looking back on those prices, isn't it? Maybe it's undervalued now or just having a few more in the market has watered it down, but the book's just waaaaayyyyy to volatile in that grade for me. Imagine paying $9700 and seeing it sell consistently for less than a third a few years later. 9 in 8.5 has had a much more stable increase over that time with a pretty sassy bump in the last two years.

CGC 9.8 ASM #33 was certainly undervalued for less than $2,000 in 2016.  It was overvalued at $9,700 in 2009, but there weren't as many on the CGC census.  I think CGC 9.8 ASM #33 was undervalued at $3,600, but the most recent sale was $5,000 and that's right in that historical middle area for the book.  I'm not sure I understand why there are so many CGC 9.8 ASM #33 (41 copies), but relative to other $5,000+ Silver Age books, 41 isn't very many.  It's just "a lot" compared to other early Spider-Man CGC 9.8 books.

Do you think the rarity of some of the Spidey books is intentional?

There was a significant find of uncirculated copies of ASM 33.  Not sure how many but more than enough to exceed the usually expected number of uber high grade copies.

This. Go for the very very best centering if you want an elite copy of 33. 

ASM 31-33, The Master Planner Trilogy, is considered one of the top two Marvel SA stories. I sold my 9, but had to keep those!

I also recall hearing #33 being part of a large warehouse find with huge quantities of uncirculated/unread copies hm

It's a tough choice but as a collector, not an investor, I would go for the lower number issue. A 9.8 #33 is quite a find but there's a certain magic in single digit Spideys, especially high grade copies. Also, don't disregard #9's great blue cover. It's a real eye catcher.

I have to agree. I really don't know how much sense would make to choose the one over the other as an investment move but I am personally more than happy with my #9 8.0 and I wouldn't change it for a #33 9.6 or 9.8. I am also happy with my #33 8.5. Why not have both in slightly lower grades if you really like the books?
