    Captain America Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (Timely, 1941) CGC Apparent VF/NM 9.0 Slight (P) Off-white pages. The United States had not yet entered World War II, but the first issue of one of the most beloved superhero comics of the Golden Age showed Captain America already taking the fight to our enemies in Europe, with Hitler receiving a terrific punch in the face! This comic features the origin and first appearance of Captain America and Bucky by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Perennial nemesis the Red Skull also makes his first appearance. Undeniably one of the most important comic books of all time, this issue is currently ranked at number six in Overstreet's list of the Top 100 Golden Age Books. This key book from Edgar Church's famous cache has only slight professional restoration and still enjoys the fresh, nearly perfect appearance expected of a Mile High pedigree book. This comic was also once part of the collection of noted comic enthusiast and actor Nicolas Cage. There are currently only two unrestored copies of this issue that have been graded higher by CGC. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of color touch, glue on cover, cover cleaned." Overstreet 2003 FN 6.0 value = $20,300; VF 8.0 value = $49,060; VF/NM 9.0 value = $82,030; NM 9.4 value = $115,000.
