X-Men 11 (1991) Pressman 2nd Print - Silver
Marvel's X-Men #11 by artist Jim Lee is iconic - and this 2nd printing, available only as a mail-away offer from Pressman with the silver foil cover as a tribute to Lee's last issue on the record-setting X-Men series, is quite rare and sought after by collectors and fans.
The "Pull for the Backstory" Frame is made of Purpleheart wood - a rich red-purple color with natural (clear) satin stain, bringing out the purples in the logo and accents the pinks in the piece, leading the viewers eye around Jim Lee's iconic rendering of Wolverine, Beast, Cyclops and the X-Men team in the comic and CoverStory.Art mat artwork, silver hand painted to extend the foil of the rare cover.
The included issue of the comic is estimated in VG condition (one uncreased vertical fold in the cover, definitely pressable...), commonly retails for over $300 as of March, 2023, with a slabbed 9.8 fair market value from COVRprice.com at $857 (based on '21 sale).
Pulling the tab at the top of the frame reveals the Backstory, with history on the comic, creator Jim Lee, and a bit on the CoverStory.Art artist.
