Courtesy of the awesome Frederator site, someone spotted a pretty amazing cameo on an old episode of Naked City. No, it's not what you're thinking (perverts). Naked City was a popular police drama of the late 50's and early 60's (sort of the Hill Street Blues of its day).
Anyway, so the guy's watching the episode and something on a newsstand in the background jumps out at him. Check out the screen-grab:

That's not only a Spider-Man comic book displayed behind the actors, but the very first appearance of Spider-Man in Amazing Fantasy #15 (1962), hanging there as casually as any other comic book on the stand.
Here's another shot of it nestled behind the reliably sweaty and overwrought Burgess Meredith:
But wait....there's more!. Take another look at the shot of the two actors, then look just to the right of Amazing Fantasy #15. Sharp-eyed fans of Silver Age Marvel Comics will recognize the cover to Journey Into Mystery #83, featuring the first appearance of The Mighty Thor!
I'm sure none of the cast and crew of Naked City would have ever guessed a 24¢ purchase of both titles would net them well over $100,000 in today's collector's market. Maybe that's why Burgess Meredith was sweating so profusely. He somehow knew he was in the presence of comic book history!
