Amazing Spider-Man 194 *ERROR VARIANT* CGC 9.6 1st App. Black Cat 1 of 1?
Why it's HOT:
1st appearance of the Black Cat
[January 2021 - a team movie is rumored to be in the works at Sony with Black Cat, Silver Sable, Silk, Jackpot and Spider-Woman / November 2021 - a Black Cat Easter Egg in the Morbius trailer glimpsed on a newspaper that reads 'Black Cat: Friend or Foe?']
The most definitive news specific to the Silver & Black project to feature Silver Sable and Black Cat was confirmed back in 2017 and supposedly in pre-production as a ‘Thelma & Louise’ buddy picture with Gina Prince-Bythewood directing
Where Sony is currently at with this project is unknown but the characters trying to break through to the mainstream Marvel Universe have been speculatively identified as: Superior Spider-Man (although others believe this to be Beetle), Scorpion, Rhino, Mysterio, Kraven and Black Cat
Scarce printing error identified by the yellow discoloration to the right of the CCA stamp in the Marvel Comics Group banner
It is rumored that once the printer noticed the error, it was quickly corrected early in the print run
This error appears to be about a 1:150, for about every 150 regular copies listed on eBay and other auction houses, one error edition pops up. I've been tracking this for years and that ratio holds true
This error is not notated by grading companies at this time
Possibly the highest graded example of the error edition, making this one of, if not the, rarest copies of the 1st Black Cat
Compareable sales: TMNT 3 printing error CGC 9.6 demands a 6.6X markup over the regular edition and that's less than a 1:15 in rarity.
This price is less than a 5X markup of recent sales of the regular edition @ about $1600.
