*NEW UNREAL CGC 9.8 SILVER & BRONZE AGE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN RUN:
We recently received on consignment an incredible run of Silver and Bronze Age Amazing Spider-Man for the June Grand Auction. The run contains over 75 issues between #5 and #201 and is easily the nicest and highest certified group of Amazing Spider-Mans ever offered for sale! Almost every issue (over 65) is a CGC certified 9.8, including the earliest known 9.9 copy of an Amazing Spider-Man comic book (issue #19), which is one of the earliest Marvels ever to receive the MINT designation. Every issue that is not a 9.8 (or 9.9) is a 9.6!

The consignment comes out of Illinois and the collection of Stewart DeSoto, a Spider-Man enthusiast and collector who only collected Spider-Man comic books. Here is his story:

“I and my brother started collecting Amazing Spider Man (and only Spiderman!) as kids in the 1970s. We were fanatics and (carefully) read every issue as soon as it was delivered to the house. I could relate to Spiderman because of my nerdiness and interest in science. I eventually got a Ph. D. in Physics to be like Peter Parker, and currently work as a Professor of Physics. As an adult I continued to search for the highest grade Amazing Spider Man in each issue, slowly building the collection over years. I was overjoyed to obtain ASM issue #19, with an unheard of CGC grade of 9.9. It is the only copy to be given that “amazing” grade out of any of the first 72 issues.

I continue to be obsessed with Peter Parker and his alter ego, Spider-Man. Whenever I take my kids trick or treating, I don my Spider-Man costume, complete with web shooters, and move spider-like through the streets of our neighborhood. I even took up the sport of rock climbing, because it is the closest thing one can experience to climbing walls just like Spidey, and I have even traveled the world looking for walls to climb.

With growing obligations as a father and a husband, plus with a new house in mind, I made the very tough decision to part with these incredible books. I just hope that the collectors out there will love and treasure my Amazing Spider-Man books as much as I have. These great books deserve it!”

All 75-plus issues are featured in the June Grand Auction and are offered with no reserve amount. Almost every book has white or off-white to white page quality with none less than off-white. There are many great issues and iconic covers included in the run and almost every book is the highest certified copy to date. Here are some of the highlights:
