    X-Men 25 Gold w Magento hologram

    X-Men (vol. 2) #25 Gold. Gambit is the hologram on the cover but I also got with it the Magento hologram on black board with gold print "Celebrating Thirty Years of Professor Xavier's Dream Team". I can't even find it with the extra hologram on the net, it always leads to the Magento cover in search. So I know I got something special there.

    Magneto was alway my favorite character because he might have been a bad guy but that doesn't mean he was a bad guy.

    It's not my most valuable comic, apparently that's Vengeance #1 which I lucked into on an off the shelf buy years back. Again, only because Magento was on the cover, and I was like, "Cool!"

    But, X-Men 25 Gold was my first jewel comic, and will always be the one book I never sell. It's got a lot of childhood memories and sweat poured to earn in it.

    Other jewels in the crown include Iron Man #3. It's in rough shape, but it's Iron Man #3. Totally cool. X-Men 137, because the story is amazing. I got two copies, one I'm going to part with and never touched, and one that I read, because that story was AMAZING. And to round out our final four, Amazing Spider-man 361, 1st appearance of Carnage.

    That's my Mt. Rushmore, as while I may have some better books value wise according to a comic guide, those were the four I worked for until I could afford em as a pre-teen. And totally worth it!
  • Mine is an ungraded Amazing Spider Man # 1 (Marvel, 1963). I estimate it would grade 2.0 at worst by CGC, up to 3.0 at best, if I were to submit it. However, my viewpoint is that once slabbed you lose the enjoyment of being a collector. Checking out recent auction sales (in 2021) I guess my copy is worth something north of $5,500.00 if I was interested in selling. However, I'm not interested in selling the jewel of my collection which is why it isn't slabbed. : - )
  • My crown jew still hasn’t made its way to my hands yet lol.
    Showcase 4, Wonder Woman 1 orSensation Comics 1.
    I have a 7.5 Brave and Bold 28 that’s dope and a bunch other DC mega key first appearances but those are my 2 goal books flash for me WW for wife.
    Hope to achieve the goal in next year or so once the almost 300 keys CGC has of mine get graded and returned…. Not holding my breath.

    My personal treasure is an old Silver Age Spider-man #33. It is priceless because back around 25 years ago I happened onto a question on an ebay forum asking for favorite memory of a comic book, to which I replied, Amazing Spider-Man 33 hooked ten year old me for life (yes I bought it brand new for 12 cents way back then), and sadly I ended up selling my whole collection in the 70's and of all of them this one was the one I missed the most. I received a private message from a person who saw my post, asking for my mailing address, which I gave him. A week later I received a coverless copy of Amazing Spider-Man 33 in the mail from this person along with a note stating he had it as an extra, and wanted me to have it for free. I have thus far rebuilt 3/4 of my old collection, but this one coverless copy is the most precious book in my collection.
  • Nice story, Fred! That rang a bell, so I looked it up in our SOLD listings, and - coincidentally - our 5.0 VG/FN copy of Spider-Man #33 sold EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO TODAY!

    We have a Spidey #35 we could list for you, if you need that one. :smiley:

  • The VG-FN ASM #33, being THE character defining comic, must have fetched a pretty penny. I have a Marvel Tales reprint of #35 holding the spot until can replace it with a copy of the original. Spidey and X-Men silver age are generally priced beyond what I am affording. I am concentrating in all the other titles from that era which are priced a bit lower.
  • Our Spider-Man 33 was a 5.0 VG/FN and went for $46.
  • This is my capstone comic
  • Marvel collectable Classic Spiderman #2. Front and back
  • Love it.
