  • 1st team appearance of the Young Avengers.
  • Coming in at number 7 this week is a book that was overlooked for a decade but is putting up monster numbers this year.
  • As recently as February this book could be had for just $200. Blame a lack of awareness and a pre-Kate Bishop rumor world.
  • Beginning in August (as we started spreading the word about it at Key Collector. Humble brag!) the book exploded into the $3k range.
  • This week we have two more big sales at $2,500 and $3,000 further enforcing this as the price threshold to obtain a copy.
  • An extended period without a copy coming to market was broken after a mention here on the Hot 10 when the Jim Cheung sketch cover made an appearance. That copy set a new all-time record of $3,051.
  • The edition has established itself as the edition to own of this book
  • This book features the first appearance of Kate Bishop (later becomes Hawkeye), Patriot, Iron Lad (Kang), Hulkling, son of Mar-Vell and Anelle, the Asgardian (name later changed to Wiccan, son of Scarlet Witch).
  • 285 copies of the Wizard World Los Angeles 2005 exclusive sketch cover by Jim Cheung were encapsulated by CGC at Wizard World Philadelphia for the Wizard First program. Mint condition copies were chosen by CGC, given a unique label and graded 9.5.
  • This book is smoking hot and with all the first appearances it contains as well as rumors that Hailee Steinfeld is playing Kate Bishop in the Disney+ Hawkeye series it may be here to stay.
  • Also note that anecdotal evidence points to at least a handful of the 285 copies being cracked and regraded with regular labels in the years since the books' release. Collectors report receiving 9.8 grades for those copies.
