#2 in this year's Top 100.
Angelo notes: A 6.5 CGC sold for $210. A 9.6 CGC sold in August 2018 for $2,300. None in this grade have appeared in months. This has become a must have book for the serious C.P.V. collector and/or investor. A double cover in 9.4-9.4 CGC has been confirmed to exist!
Paul notes: 75¢ variants of this issue did indeed come with Tattooz included; book is considered incomplete at CGC (green qualified label) if absent — read Jon's note as well, regarding CGC's treatment. A VF- Amazing Spider-Man #238 variant sold at PNJ Comics for $160 in 2018
Ben notes: Classic cover contender. Also refer to my prior note in this separate blog post »
Jon notes: Amazing Spider-Man #238 is not incomplete without Tattooz. It was printed in a standard, old fashioned way, independent of the Tattooz inserted later, just like many other in-house or paid advertisement inserts from any era. I believe this problem originates from the fact that the comic's cover mentions Tattooz, as does the cover to Fantastic Four #252(3/83). Ideally, the Tattooz ARE absent due to the slow degradation of the contents that will eventually effect the paper quality inside. Overstreet listings are confused, forced to respond to CGC's myopic view. Once upon a time, I called Bob Overstreet and told him that the FF #252's Tattooz were being used as ASM #238's Tattooz and that the cure was to list them as same value, which he agreed with and subsequently did so. Collectors aren't sure what to believe and that's how the myth is perpetuated, the myth of being incomplete without Tattooz. At some point, although my original note remains in the guide about the switching of Tattooz between books, this was changed back to the original mistaken listing (including the explicit mistaken statement that NO Type 1a Canadian variants exist with Tattooz) with two values, with and without Tattooz. The FF #252s are listed in Overstreet #48(2019) at $8 with Tattooz and $6 without in NM-, and ASM #238 is listed at $170 with and $80 without in NM-, a discrepancy that highlights this dilemma, with Tattooz worth between $2 and $80 for the same item. All any grading company would have to do is say ''no Tattooz'' on the label and have a blue label, leaving it to the collector to decide on the relative importance of its inclusion. There is little difference between the mistaken use of the term ''Canadian Edition'' for Type 1A variants and insisting books without inserts are incomplete; thankfully the misidentification of "Canadian Edition" now reads "Canadian Price Variant." Any real NM- or better copy should be taken seriously with or without the insert. Tattooz were inserted in Amazing Spider-Man #238 and Fantastic Four #252 and advertised on the covers; Captain America #279(3/83) and Star Wars #69(3/83) were all given Tattooz inserts without any advertising on the covers. Because neither of the latter books are considered incomplete without the inserts and would receive CGC blue labels, it stands to reason that ASM #238 and FF #252 are not incomplete without Tattooz either, as the books are complete, having been printed in a standard way, independent of the Tattooz that were then inserted. The only difference is the ads on the covers, and those are irrelevant as they are part of the cover of the comic book.

#9 in this year's Top 100.
Angelo notes: In August 2018, a 9.8 CGC variant sold for $1,150 and a 9.6 CGC variant sold for $764. Book has settled for lower prices since because an increased supply came up for sale. Then in November 2019, a CGC 9.8 variant (white pages) sold for $1750. Along with Marvel Team-up #141, Spectacular #90 and Secret Wars #8 this book is a must have for the Spider-man collector/investor interested in the black suit which eventually becomes Venom.
Paul notes: Example ASM #252 variant sales at PNJ Comics: A CGC 9.8 Amazing Spider-Man #252 variant sold for $1,020.00 on 12/24/2017, an NM+ variant sold for $250.00 on 3/7/2018, and an NM variant sold for $215 in 2018.
Ben notes: An "event" comic that received immediate collector interest, it is likely that many collectors may have not been able to load up at their local comic shop with as many copies as they wanted, and thus headed to the newsstands to add additional copies. We see an extraordinarily high number of CGC census copies of both the variant and the "regular" types for this particular issue.
Bill notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,282 in October 2018; back in December 2017 a CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,000; a VG/FN variant sold for $107.58 in August 2018

Jon notes: Amazing Spider-Man #238 is not incomplete without Tattooz. It was printed in a standard, old fashioned way, independent of the Tattooz inserted later, just like many other in-house or paid advertisement inserts from any era. I believe this problem originates from the fact that the comic's cover mentions Tattooz, as does the cover to Fantastic Four #252(3/83). Ideally, the Tattooz ARE absent due to the slow degradation of the contents that will eventually effect the paper quality inside. Overstreet listings are confused, forced to respond to CGC's myopic view. Once upon a time, I called Bob Overstreet and told him that the FF #252's Tattooz were being used as ASM #238's Tattooz and that the cure was to list them as same value, which he agreed with and subsequently did so. Collectors aren't sure what to believe and that's how the myth is perpetuated, the myth of being incomplete without Tattooz. At some point, although my original note remains in the guide about the switching of Tattooz between books, this was changed back to the original mistaken listing (including the explicit mistaken statement that NO Type 1a Canadian variants exist with Tattooz) with two values, with and without Tattooz. The FF #252s are listed in Overstreet #48(2019) at $8 with Tattooz and $6 without in NM-, and ASM #238 is listed at $170 with and $80 without in NM-, a discrepancy that highlights this dilemma, with Tattooz worth between $2 and $80 for the same item. All any grading company would have to do is say ''no Tattooz'' on the label and have a blue label, leaving it to the collector to decide on the relative importance of its inclusion. There is little difference between the mistaken use of the term ''Canadian Edition'' for Type 1A variants and insisting books without inserts are incomplete; thankfully the misidentification of "Canadian Edition" now reads "Canadian Price Variant." Any real NM- or better copy should be taken seriously with or without the insert. Tattooz were inserted in Amazing Spider-Man #238 and Fantastic Four #252 and advertised on the covers; Captain America #279(3/83) and Star Wars #69(3/83) were all given Tattooz inserts without any advertising on the covers. Because neither of the latter books are considered incomplete without the inserts and would receive CGC blue labels, it stands to reason that ASM #238 and FF #252 are not incomplete without Tattooz either, as the books are complete, having been printed in a standard way, independent of the Tattooz that were then inserted. The only difference is the ads on the covers, and those are irrelevant as they are part of the cover of the comic book.

Angelo notes: In August 2018, a 9.8 CGC variant sold for $1,150 and a 9.6 CGC variant sold for $764. Book has settled for lower prices since because an increased supply came up for sale. Then in November 2019, a CGC 9.8 variant (white pages) sold for $1750. Along with Marvel Team-up #141, Spectacular #90 and Secret Wars #8 this book is a must have for the Spider-man collector/investor interested in the black suit which eventually becomes Venom.
Paul notes: Example ASM #252 variant sales at PNJ Comics: A CGC 9.8 Amazing Spider-Man #252 variant sold for $1,020.00 on 12/24/2017, an NM+ variant sold for $250.00 on 3/7/2018, and an NM variant sold for $215 in 2018.
Ben notes: An "event" comic that received immediate collector interest, it is likely that many collectors may have not been able to load up at their local comic shop with as many copies as they wanted, and thus headed to the newsstands to add additional copies. We see an extraordinarily high number of CGC census copies of both the variant and the "regular" types for this particular issue.
Bill notes: A CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,282 in October 2018; back in December 2017 a CGC 9.8 variant sold for $1,000; a VG/FN variant sold for $107.58 in August 2018
