Filter does it again and he just misses the ebay record list.

Winning bid: US $25,100.00 Seller: filter81 ( 734 )


In this auction you are bidding on X-men 1 CGC 9.0 VF/NM. This issue features the 1st appearance of the X-men and Magneto! This is the comic that started an entire franchise! This issue is very difficult to find in high grade (and its even more difficult trying to find someone willing to sell a copy in high grade) and this copy currently ranks in the top 2% of all X-men 1s graded by CGC!

According to GPA, the last time a CGC 9.0 sold in public auction was for $33,333 in August '09. (Though another 9.0 sold more recently on a private website for $37,500!)

With X-men: First Class (centered around the origin of the X-men and Magneto) due to hit Theaters in 2012, this comic is about to get hot! And with Wolverine 2 and X-men 4 already in the planning stages after that, the X-men franchise looks like it will continue to be in the spotlight for years to come. With the 1st appearance of Spider-man already selling for well over 6 figures in similar grade, the value of this book has nowhere to go but up!

And the book:
