Worth watching: A copy of X-Men # 120 (CGC 9.8 NM/MT / WHITE Pages) is currently sitting at $7,600, well above the current FMV of $4,600 for this grade and higher than most of the recent sales we’ve seen for this book, which could be because of its very white pages.

Another book making moves is Iron Fist #14. CGC graded 9.8 and in Near Mint/Mint condition, this is another book with white page catching eyes. Currently, the high bid is $4,250, just shy of the FMV for this grade.
