Amazing Spider-Man #6 9.4

"The Amazing Spider-Man #6 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. A key issue featuring the tragic origin and first appearance of the Lizard, one of Spidey's most-enduring foes. Only a relative handful of copies have received a higher grade from CGC to date. The cover and art are by Steve Ditko, whose work defined Spider-Man during the character's early years. Overstreet 2019 NM- 9.2 value = $5,600. CGC census 7/20: 32 in 9.4, 13 higher."

This is one of my personal grails that I would love to own is really any condition at this point, let alone 9.4. Lizard has always been my favorite Spidey villain and has one of the most tragic of origin stories in comics. I remember thinking when I was a kid and would see the cover to Amazing Spider-Man #6, I thought he was a dinosaur and only later understood what Steve Ditko was going for with the characters design. At a current bid of $6,750, I personally cannot own this copy, but you can. Bids are still being accepted until July 9th, so click here to check out more about the book and see what else is on auction this round from Heritage.
