These are the 3 most valuable Marvel comic books published in every year (Overstreet 2013 guide NM prices)

These books have proven to be consistently the most in demand key issues ever and are the best investments long term.

This list only include regular cover mass printed editions.  No variants or limited edition versions included.

This is the first time a yearly comparison has ever been made and the purpose is to show a few things.

First of all the following list truly highlights the major key issues/books of every year.  It also shows quickly which titles seems to pop up the most often and are the most expensive series to collect.  Whether its Captain America in the 1940’s, Amazing-Spiderman in the 1960’s or X-Men in the late 1970’s, some titles are just more collected than others and bring higher $ amounts even to non-key issues in a run.

It is easy to see when a new hero age begins when a bunch of key books stand out with very high price runs during the gold and silver ages.

Note that some years have lesser keys standing at the front of the line and are”for their age” a better investment. This can always be seen with most books from the 1950’s which are much more affordable and scarcer than any more recent books.

All comics from 1977 to the present are much more common as comic book shops became more dominant and offered back issues.  For many more current years its scarcer issues of long running titles that rank highest even though they are not key issues.
