HYPER-HIGH GRADE X-MEN #196.

This superior comic-book was strictly graded by CGC and boasts phenomenal eye appeal.

BID AGGRESSIVELY, AS THIS ISSUE IS IMPOSSIBE TO FIND IN BETTER-THAN-NM/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 perfect centering and alignment, 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.  While in my collection this comic was stored meticulously in a cool dry dark non-smoking environment.

STUNNING BRIGHT LOGO AGAINST AN UNFORGIVING DARK BACKGROUND, WITH AN AWESOME ROMITA COVER SHOWING THE FAN-FAVE MUTANT WOLVERINE, ABOUT THE RELEASE HIS BLOODRAGE AGAINST RACHEL WHEN HE SEES THE DEAD BODIES OF HIS FELLOW MUTANTS ROGUE, STORM, AND KITTY PRYDE! 

THIS IS NOT EASY TO GET IN CERTIFIED 9.8 CONDITION;  IT'S VIRTUALLY MYTHICAL IN THIS SUPERLATIVE MINT STATE.

THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FAN OF MINT CALIBER GEMS! 

MANY OF THE X-MEN WE ARE CURRENTLY OFFERING ARE TOP GRADED OR RUNNER-UP ON THE CURRENT CENSUS...  SO THIS IS SPECIAL CHANCE FOR THE MINT FREAK TO OBTAIN SOME UPGRADES!

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 in battle against top villains, in one of the more beloved adventure stories by the influential team of Chris Claremont and John Romita, Jr.  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 the past year, which is still selling around the world currently on DVD, bringing the love of muties to still more generations of fans;  Wolvcrine has a hit new film out now, and more mutant movies are slated for the coming years...  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 9.9 SPECIMENS OF THIS OLD 65-CENTER ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO OBTAIN!

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 slightest blemish or soiling stands out and 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 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 excellent centering 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.  The lines, scuffs, and hazy areas you see below are from the scanner glass, not the slab or comic, plus there are reflections and glare, all of which is not evident when viewing the actual book in person.  (Our scanner makes it appear that there's ligher areas and hazy regions; there are no cracks and no scratches on the CGC holder, either.) 

We are also now offering DOZENS of 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 quarter-century 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....  Professionally-graded minty specimens of this hot issue are always in demand, but are not always available in the market, especially in such well-preserved condition with incredible luster and great colors like this! 

 This is a C.G.C. BEST-CERTIFIED investment that you can show and display proudly, without worrying about damage or degradation of the nice supple bone white paper, thanks to the benefit of professional Comic Guaranty Corporation encapsulation. With demand that exceeds supply, premium prices often occur when a finest certified 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 Marvel Comic collector, and prefer unrestored 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 9.9 MINT; --it looks about flawless from outside the clear plastic CGC case!

This extra bright clean copy sports the Blue Unrestored CGC Label;  --And the CGC case is unblemished, with no scuffs or cracks.

* GORGEOUS MINT SPECIMEN *

We are prompt shippers & secure packagers, expect to be pleased.
