Looking for High Grade Amazing Spider-Man #300, here are five

We saw a crazy auction recently where a seller bulked out a bunch of NYX #3. The same seller is back with a Lot of 5 High Grade Amazing Spider-Man #300 

But you have to ask fast and be ready to throw down several thousand dollars. The Lot of 5 High Grade Amazing Spider-Man #300 had about 30 minutes left and is sitting at just above $2,000.  I am watching it to see how it ends.

    Why do they all say wizard in the bottom right corner?

  2. ki1owatt says:

    I thought the same thing.

  3. Cody says:

    Ahhh would’ve been a bummer had it been a freebie inside the old wizard mags.

  4. Cody says:

    2750??? Seems to me like you could get 5 nm copies separately for cheaper.

      If they really all high grade though, even if 3 of them out of 5 come back as 9.8, you already got your money returned. Honestly, if I had seen these earlier, I would have been tempted myself. I think these would be a great buy and hold, I only see these going up in value as more time passes. Spider-Man isn’t going anywhere.. and Venom isn’t either.

      • OC_Guy says:

        agree… From the looks of them and not being able to see them in person it looks as though maybe one has a shot at a 9.8 with at least two other looking to me as being in 9.6. I doubt any of that lot goes below a 9.4 unless there is unseen damage on the back covers, but like you said ASM #300 is only going to go up in value! It is not only a legit key now but a major one at that! Still boggles my mind a bit how much it has grown!

  5. OC_Guy says:

    Of the four copies I bought in the early 2k’s I still have three..One a 9.6 the other two higher grade but not certified. Never thought I would see the day they would go for this much money. Not complaining, just a little surprised.

  6. Cyber Golem says:

    wow someone dished out crazy dinero for these.

  7. Stanley says:

    High demand items in seller markets may be great for sellers but perhaps not so great for buyers? People who brought those items cheap may think buyers overpay.

    • agentpoyo says:

      I think these are only going to continue going up in value as more time passes. $2750 isn’t really that bad a price if they truly are all high grade with no problems.

    • agentpoyo says:

      Recent 9.6 grades are ending anywhere between $700 – $850 range as well. So yeah, whoever won these at $2750, they’re best option is to get these graded, they could be looking at a really nice profit turn around if these are 9.6 or better for all of them.

  8. Alana says:

    You should of been buying them at $50 7years ago if your investing in this book. The first Venom appearance in Spider-Man 3 never really pushed the books value up lol, but in these crazy times a Venom movie pushes this book astronomical.

    • Richard Sean Guevara says:

      Spider-Man 3 was terrible though! Plus it wasn’t until more recently that all this Marvel that done a lot of hyping up/heating up the market. Crazy how high they’re going for though.

    • Junior says:

      Agreed I did my buying in the early 90’s 😁

  9. ki1owatt says:

    I bought 3 off the shelf when they hit the stands back in the day. I also grabbed a couple more over the years for cheap. Deep down I knew someday these books would finally get the credit they deserve.

  10. DougC says:

    These books are way over valued. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to see something in the comic market going up for a change, but it’s so volatile!

    A year ago, a 9.6 was at 400 USD. Now it’s 700?

    • OC_Guy says:

      Well, Since Marvel characters started appearing in movies in the early 2k’s more and more people are collecting first appearances and key issues…Not just in North America and parts of Europe. It has grown steadily all over the globe and those wanting the key issues want US printed issues. The demand, even for larger print runs (such as ASM #300) of very popular characters first appearances is huge right now and it doesn’t look like that is going to slow down. It is a sellers market for sure. To be honest, books such as ASM #300 and #361 haven’t come close to their ceilings yet. By the time the movie is released I wouldn’t be surprised if 9.6’s of 300 are constantly selling for $1000 to $1200 each. “IF” the movie is good probably more than that.

  11. Andrew Cantrell says:

    Man if I only had a time machine….. I’m glad to see the book is getting the praise it deserves, but it does seem like an overload (from a buyers perspective).

    • JayClue says:

      If you had a time machine, youre better off picking up the sports almanac, a la Marty McFly, then to go back and buy comic books.

      • OC_Guy says:

        Get stacks of Detective #27’s and flood the market so collectors could actually get their hands on it instead of investment firms.

      • agentpoyo says:

        You go back in time, but you stick them in a safety deposit box (with some of the best backer boards and mylar bags) or somewhere else safe, so they still age. You come back with high value comics, they’re gonna say they’re the best counterfeits since they show all original but don’t show any type of age.

      • Andrew Cantrell says:

        Haha, yeah betting on sports would take too much time for me so I would probably go back with the winning powerball numbers from one of the crazy high jackpots. That way I could afford a few copies of this book. Plus a bigger house so my wife doesn’t complain about all my books and boxes laying everywhere.
