Heritage Auctions has just completed a public offering of the highest-graded known copy of Marvel Comics #1. The sale price: $1.26 million.

This copy was given a 9.4 rating (out of 10) by Certified Guaranty Company (CGC), and is the highest-rated Marvel Comics #1 ever graded. Only two other copies have been given a rating of 9.0 or higher.

This copy comes from the Windy City pedigree collection, which was compiled by an anonymous Uniontown, Pennsylvania mailman who purchased every first issue he could of both comic books and magazines, starting in the 1940s. The collection has been brought to market by Chicago dealer Gary Colabuono.

“This is a historic copy of a historic comic book,” said Ed Jaster, Senior Vice President at Heritage Auctions, in a statement. “Without question, this is the granddaddy of all Marvel Comics, without which we would not have the characters and stories we enjoy in today’s comics and feature films.”

According to Heritage, this $1.26m auction price is new record for the most expensive Marvel comic ever sold at public auction.

The buyer(s) have not been disclosed.
