Item DescriptionHigh grade supple,glossy,white paged copy. From the original owner high grade Louisiana Collection. Read the feedback on our grading of high grade books.. Note the following key points. The spine is continuous and structurally "tight". We have enlarged the comic on our viewer to a much larger size and we can not visualize ANY spine stress marks. The corners appear right angled and devoid of any creases. The staples are in place with NO peri staple wear noted.Tilting the comic in the light we can not see any impressions or contact points. As always grading involves a subjective assessment, as defects can not be calculated to arrive at a number(yet).We may yet "Slab" this issue, yet one of the things that always concerned us was that almost everything looks higher grade in a slab, as the 2 locked in hard plastics "hides" stress lines and impact points,as they are compressed.We feel that no pieces of paper can be perfect, yet this issue appears visually at 6 inches away as stress line free. Verified Sales of 9.8s have reached close to $5400.00!!!
Key Collector Comics points out some pertinent facts;
1st chronological appearance of Gambit in-story (or in-continuity)
X-Men Annual #14 went on sale three weeks before this issue and is often considered the first cameo appearance of Gambit
This would imply that his appearance is brief though he appears in 15 panels throughout X-Men Annual #14 with at least 10 instances of dialogue
Uncanny X-Men #266 was written as if it were to be published prior to the annual, therefore #266 would be the first chronological appearance of Gambit in-story (or in-continuity)
CGC, the grading certification company for comic books, recognizes Uncanny X-Men #266 as the first full appearance of Gambit
We have reviewed this under HIGH MAGNIFICATION.This is a flat,tight copy,unrestored that we feel is graded accurately.
