DescriptionCaptain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. The origin and first appearance of Captain America, this is one of the ten most valuable comic books in Overstreet's ranking, and it brings together everything you could ask for. It was a groundbreaking book: though Cap wasn't the first patriotic hero, he was the best of the bunch thanks to the fantastic visuals of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. The cover with Cap punching Hitler came months before the USA entered the war, and at a time when most comics were referring to the Nazi menace in an oblique fashion if at all. Then there's the fact that Cap's most memorable villain, the Red Skull, first appeared in the issue, as did Cap's sidekick Bucky. Simply a must for any Timely/Marvel collector! Overstreet 2006 FN 6.0 value = $21,950; VF 8.0 value = $51,000. CGC census 3/06: 4 in 6.5, 11 higher.
