    Description

    Action Comics #8 (DC, 1939) CGC FR/GD 1.5 Cream to off-white pages. You may not realize how very tough this issue is! CGC has certified a mere seven unrestored copies (only issue #9 has fewer). The only other one we've ever offered in nine years was a 2.0 with a detached cover. Fred Guardineer's cover is a non-Superman affair, but of course the Man of Tomorrow had only been on two covers to that point: #1 and #7. CGC notes, "2 pieces of tape on cover. 1 piece of tape on interior cover." Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $1,212. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 1.5, 5 higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 772386002 and purchase grader's notes if available.
