    Big All-American Comic Book #1 Carson City pedigree (DC, 1944) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. We consider ourselves fortunate to have offered some of the nicest known copies of this book, the San Francisco and Hawkeye pedigree copies to name two. But all of them take a back seat to this stunner from the Carson City collection (sometimes dubbed the "Comstock Lode"). We would have thought that only an uncirculated file copy could be this well-preserved, note the page quality! The penciled "#1" on the cover ties in with what we know about this pedigree, namely that the collector made it a point to put away only the first issue of each comic series. It's amazing that we're even talking about a NM copy of this book, as the huge page count would normally preclude it from even approaching this grade. The spine is perfect; it is flat, and does not even have the usual bindery chips at the top or bottom that even high-grade collectors are usually resigned to accepting! The book is cut perfectly square, the edges are still crisp and sharp, and the front and back covers are both bright and clean. Every significant All-American Comics character is present in this book, and that includes not only the likes of Flash, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern but also humorous characters like Scribbly and Mutt and Jeff. Another milestone: it's Joe Kubert's first work on Hawkman. We encourage you to take a close look at our scan and see what all the fuss is about! Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $15,300. CGC census 10/06: 1 in 9.4, none higher.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
