CGC & Harvestor Investments Partner on Label for Marvel® Comic Foils

Posted on 11/13/2018

Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) and Harvestor Investments have partnered to create a special CGC Marvel® Comics certification label for the new Amazing Fantasy #15 Silver and Gold Foils. Amazing Fantasy #15 is the first release in the new Marvel Classic Comic Covers Foil Series being released by Harvestor Investments.

Amazing Fantasy #15 is perhaps one of the most valuable and most recognizable Marvel® titles of all time. Not only does this comic feature the first appearance of Spider-Man but it is widely considered one of Stan Lee's greatest works. It is also known as the comic that set the storytelling style for the modern Marvel Universe.

Amazing Fantasy #15 also claims a place in history as the first Modern Age comic to sell for over $1 million in auction! Today, copies in every grade are still heavily sought-after by collectors.

The new Amazing Fantasy #15 Silver and Gold Foils feature an exact replica of the original, thrilling cover by world-renowned artist Jack Kirby and incorporate both color and engraving. These unique collectibles are made from 1 oz. of .999 fine silver and 1 oz. of .999 fine gold, and measure 179 x 259 mm, roughly the same size as the original comic book form 1962! Mintage is strictly limited to 1,000 silver foils and 10 gold foils.

CGC's Marvel® logo label is only available through Harvestor Investments, but collectors can still submit their foils for the standard CGC blue label.
