Marvel Collectible Classics Spider-Man #2 (1998)

It is worth noting that the chromium reprint does not have an issue number on the cover and it can be confused with #1 (the number of the comic it reprints), however, CGC, CBCS and most websites have this denoted as #2.

At the end of November 2017, the CGC census had 429 gradings recorded for this chromium edition with an astounding 5 graded at 9.9 (mint minus) and 5 at 10.0 (gem mint) reflecting the quality of the cover.
