I always thought #69 was one of Romita's greatest covers.  The contrast between what the Kingpin is doing with each hand conveys his power so convincingly.

An awesome cover indeed. Here is my raw copy. Got it from Metropolis, when I was in NY last year - graded as VF.

On newsstands in Nov 68 - my birth year and month.- have looked long and hard for one with a Nov 9 stamp date - a Saturday - so probably none exist.

This one isn't quite as white, but it is a few years earlier, so ….

Just to have a Ditko issue in 9.6 is incredible.

Thanks!! It was a lot of loot though, so can't afford to get one like that very often. Oh well, slow and steady fills the box :)

In keeping with my new tradition of being ultra lazy, I thought I'd just share screen shots from my flickr album of my earliest Spidey's...:devil:  Yeah, I know...#1 & #14 ain't there cause I never bought them.  Well, nuthin's perfect in life...:cry:

The good news is that you could sell or trade your AF 15 and get minty copies of both ASM 1 and 14! :wink:

Thanks! It was projected to grade higher. It was graded at a time they were very tight. 7 of 8 came back lower than expected.

Just picked these up off the Bay. Paid recent GPA high for the 76 but it does have white pages. Saved a bit on the 69 I guess due to PQ.

I'm a sucker for the old-old labels!

ASM #69 CGC 9.2 FRONT.jpg

I have never been afraid to set new GPA highs when it's a book that I know I will keep and cherish for a long time.
