    San Francisco Comic Book #1 - First Printing (Print Mint, 1970) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. The first underground title published by Gary Arlington, this comic offers an eye-catching monster cover drawn by Rory Hayes. Inside, readers were treated to an early appearance of Robert Crumb's Flakey Foont, and other features with art by Spain Rodriguez, S. Clay Wilson, Rick Griffin, and Jack Jackson. To date, this is the only copy of this issue to receive a CGC-certified grade. Overstreet does not list this or other Underground comic issues, but Jay Kennedy pegged this one at $60 back in 1982.
