    Big All-American Comic Book #1 San Francisco pedigree (DC, 1944) CGC VF/NM 9.0 White pages. One of the highlights of this star-studded special auction is this sterling copy here. The issue is on Overstreet's list of the 100 most valuable Golden Age comics, and it's got plenty to offer, as it includes every character worth mentioning from All-American Comics (which in essence was a sister company to DC, and all of these favorites are DC characters now). It's also significant for having two firsts involving legendary DC creators: it's got Julius Schwartz's first script for DC as well as the first time Joe Kubert drew Hawkman! Having seen the two copies graded higher by CGC to date, we'd have to say this Tom Reilly book is their equal in attractiveness -- the Carson City copy which reigns as highest-graded is quite mis-cut (this one's perfectly cut and centered), and the Hawkeye copy can't match this book's amazing page quality! Overstreet 2006 VF/NM 9.0 value = $10,985; NM- 9.2 value = $15,300. CGC census 8/06: 1 in 9.0, 2 higher.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
