    Description

    Action Comics #25 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Superman, American icon for more than 60 years, is the star of this early issue of Action Comics. As cool as that is, the condition is even more remarkable. Many comics from the collection of Edgar Church are in unimprovable condition, but, to paraphrase Orwell, some are more unimprovable than others. This is one of those truly amazing copies that looks like it was lifted from the magazine rack of 1940 and teleported across time to the home of Heritage Comics. All personnel who handle this book are required by our insurer to wear protective sunglasses to prevent blindness from the blazing colors and gut-wrenching white pages of this copy. You might have guessed that, according to the latest CGC census, it is by far the highest-graded copy of this issue, but did you know that no issue of Action below #30 has graded higher than 9.2? Given that nearly all of the other Mile High copies of early Actions have been locked away in collections for years, you will need to act decisively if you want to acquire this jewel. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $3,000.
