X-Men 110 CGC 9.8 WHITE PHOENIX JOINS 1978 Cockrum NM/MT TOP-GRADE Uncanny Xmen
THE TOP GRADED X-MEN #110!
This super-bright clean comic-book was strictly graded by CGC and boasts phenomenal eye appeal.
BID AGGRESSIVELY, AS THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARCER 'NEW TEAM' ISSUES IN BETTER THAN NEAR MINT SHAPE.
THIS COMIC IS SUITABLE FOR EVEN THE FINEST COLLECTION: I've always been extra picky when it came to appearance AND condition, as I wanted my high-grade X-Men comics to have great cut with exact centering, things that the certification companies scarcely consider when grading. So if you too are extra picky, and want copies that are not only well preserved and of exceptional structural quality, but also look like they were printed JUST RIGHT with perfect framing and deep color strike with accurate registration and sharp corners, and somehow they didn't pick up any date notations or markings or flaws during the distribution process either, then you crave books of this caliber and you already know how seldom these opportunities arise. This comic is stored meticulously in a cool dry dark non-smoking environment.
STUNNING WHITE AND BLUE LOGO AGAINST A BLACK BACKGROUND, WITH AN AWESOME COVER SHOWING THE FAN-FAVE MUTANTS CYCLOPS, BANSHEE, STORM AND COLOSSUS, IN A WILD SCENE FIGHTING AGAINST THEIR OWN DANGER ROOM!
THIS IS ONE OF THE TOUGHER PRE-BYRNE-RUN ISSUES TO GET IN BEST-CERTIFIED 9.8 CONDITION!
This book is well known to fans and dealers alike, as a tough early new-team issue featuring the ever-popular mutant WOLVERINE and the rest of the Uncanny mutants, battling against their own Danger Room, in one of the more beloved adventure stories by the influential team of Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum. The dark background of the cover provides great contrasts and is a treat to behold when it's unblemished by such pesky detractors as creases & spine-stresses. The Uncanny X-Men are already a household name around the globe, thanks in part to the smash-hit films and record-setting DVD sales and all the toys and videogames and statues and animation and action-figures and clothing and plethora of other licensed merchandise. Wolverine and the X-Men were in another super-popular big-budget film in recent years, and another mutant film is hitting domestic theaters this month, which will later be selling around the globe on DVD... It doesn't get any more "Blue Chip" than this!
This incredible original first-print comic-book WILL find a new home, as the asking price is LOW and there is NO RESERVE!
ALWAYS HOT, CGC 9.8 SPECIMENS OF THIS OLD 35-CENTER ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN, AND WELL-CENTERED COPIES ARE ESPECIALLY RARE.
This historic comic is a real find in unrestored NM+ or better shape, as most copies had minute production flaws such as printing creases or pre-Marvel Chipping, while others were read and re-read, time and time again, and with the glossy dark cover even the tiniest flaws seem magnified. However, this copy is spectacular, as it's super-clean and there is no visible wear or aging, and it has precise printing registration and spot-on centering. Plus it has the elusive unsurpassed paper quality. And the gloss is excellent, too! This crushes most of the so-called "Mint" old comics I purchased over the decades back in the pre-CGC era. Good luck finding this level of eye appeal again in the future, as this beauty boasts deep rich uniform colors and a flat clean appearance along with heavy gloss and sharp corners, devoid of common problems such as print-creases and miscuts and corner dings, and the unusually white back cover just adds to the allure.
We are also now offering many other pristine CGC X-MEN, plus rare comic art; And we'll be offering hundreds of other collectable comics in the next few months. Check out our ebay items regularly!
A lot has happened with Marvel comics in the past few decades since this gem came out, adding more allure to the iconic and oft-reprinted vintage issues such as this; so I don't suggest waiting around until these crucial books have gone through the roof.... Finest CGC-graded specimens of this hot early-issue are always in demand, but are seldom available in the market, especially in such well-preserved condition with incredible luster like this!
This is a certified investment that you can show and display proudly, without worrying about damage or degradation of the nice supple clean snow white paper, thanks to the benefit of professional Comic Guaranty Corporation encapsulation. With demand that exceeds supply, premium prices do occur when a superlative beauty such as this reaches the market.
If you are a discriminating Marvel collector, serious CGC-graded comics investor, or just a devout X-Men or Warhawk collector, and prefer unrestored top-certified books without significant flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity. It looks less appealing in the disappointing picture, with lots of glare and lines from our scanner, ~but in person the book looks spectacular and the super bright colors really leap out at you!
The conservative Overall CGC Universal Grade is a mind-boggling NM/MINT; --it looks just about flawless from outside the clear plastic CGC case!
