    Description

    Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC Apparent VF 8.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. One of the most famous comic covers of all combines with the origin and first appearance of the title character to make this #7 in Overstreet's ranking of the 100 most valuable comic books (and behind only Marvel Comics #1 in the Timely department). There's no villain quite as evil as Adolf Hitler, of course, but in the fictional department you can't get much more fiendish than the Red Skull, who also debuts. And don't forget Cap's loyal sidekick Bucky Barnes who also appears inside. Creative geniuses Joe Simon and Jack Kirby drew the origin story, while the cover is a solo effort by Kirby. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2011 GD 2.0 value = $10,000; VG 4.0 value = $20,000; FN 6.0 value = $30,000; VF 8.0 value = $70,000.
