What is the value of Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #1?
I have a copy of Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #1 and I want to know what this comic book is worth in different grades as a first printing?

✔️Accepted answer: The answer depends on whether you own a Type 1A cover price variant copy, or just a regular/plain copy of Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #1. If you own a price variant, lucky you, it is worth $24 in 9.2 (Near Mint Minus).

  Suggested answer: Check the cover price of your copy of Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #1, and if it is $1.25 then congratulations, you own the more-rare cover price variant type which has a higher value. If not, then you own the regular type which has a lower value.
