Journey Into Mystery #85 CGC 4.5 | Marvel (10/1962)
1st appearances of: Loki, Odin, Asgard & Heimdall

Another book I submitted sometime back after having it in my pc for sometime. I love super keys like this one and its analogs - Iron Man #55, Strange Tales #135, etc. Another book that only went through a quick press by CCS.
This example is a solid way to get into this super key.

$1250 shipped in the Cont U S.

Congrats

I personally think this book is prime for a BIG price adjustment

It's been undervalued so long

I'm holding onto my 9.2 CGC book for now.

It's a great super key. I've felt that way about Strange Tales #135 too. That is a book I feel has never gotten it's due. Everything under the sun regarding S.H.I.E.L.D. first appeared in that book.

I'm going to be unloading about 25 - 30 investment grade keys I bought for this purpose about 15 years ago now. So there's more books like this to come out in a slow trickle.

If anybody has a raw copy of JIM 85, please send a PM. I need to add a lower to mid-grade copy to the collection.

You might want to consider finding a harshly graded slab and cracking it if you want a raw. Throw the label in the back of the bag after you do. :)

There's this stigma about breaking slabs open, but the real truth is that the native intent was simply to give a reliable grade and to be opened if you want.

But that thought is so outside the realm of most collector's minds that doing that is like Darkseid's anti-life equation.... :lol:

Great idea IMJ. I might just try that.
