One of the Most overlooked and undervalued Early Silver Age Marvel Keys on the market.
This 9.6 sample ranks as the highest graded copy tied with merely 2 others for best known copies.
Much much scarcer than most early key marvels.
As you can see by the chart above.
Strange Tales #101 came out BEFORE the other key marvels mentioned above, and is certainly the scarcest with only 3 copies existing above the grade of 9.4.
This particular copy boast Dead on Centering, exceptional eye appeal, Ruby Red Reds and razor sharp edges. Did I mention the Ridiculous color depth ?? The title nearly pops right off the cover.
AS old as this book is, the fact if predates other marvel keys that fact well over 1/4 million $$$ and the fact that this book is even scarcer than those ............. Expect this book to skyrocket at anytime.
Human Torch stories begin. 1st solo Human Torch story since 1954 Recap origin of Fantastic Four.
