    I committed highway robbery at Half Price Books last night. Stopped in on a whim and as I was walking past the comics section noticed a few early issues of Ultimate Spider-Man sitting on top of the clearanced books. Started digging through them and eventually had a run of issues 2-25! Decided to chance it and asked the girl at the register if she knew if they still had issue 1. She said they did and that it was in the back waiting to be priced. She said she would check out prices and bring it out for me. I know how much the book is worth and figure I won't be getting out of here on the cheap for it. She comes back and I hear the pricing gun go, "ga-chunk," "ga-chunk." She walks over to me and says "I have two." Two?! Then she says, "with the exception of some crazy person trying to sell one for $140, all the others sellers were only asking $2" Where the hell did she look? She then mentioned it was a slow night so she had a chance to put out some clearance books and they had been sitting out less than an hour.

    So, for your viewing pleasure, Ultimate Spider-Man 1 -25, with an extra copy of issue 1, all first prints, all in tip-top shape. Grand total, with tax... $6.96!!!

    Nice score! I sold my Ultimate Spidey #1 for $30 a few years ago when I needed the money.

    Nice score! Those are definitely some great Spidey comics! Can't say they're worth what they used to be before they killed off Ultimate Peter Parker, but that's an awesome price for great comics!

    Nice score. Isn't the all white cover of #1 the big money item though?

    yeah the white incentive cover was the 1 that commanded a $300 value way back

    that being said, 7 bucks for 25 comics is awesomeeee

    Wow, I have two copies of Ultimate Spider-man 1. I had no idea it was worth anything. I also have Ultimate X-men number 1. After perusing through ebay; Ultimate X-men isn't nearly as expensive.

    I already own all of these. I totally picked them up to flip. Now my decision is to CGC or not CGC a few of the earlier issues.
