    Description

    Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white to white pages. The origin and first appearance of Captain America is a book that's in the top ten of Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, and it brings together everything you could ask for in a Golden Age superhero issue. It was a groundbreaking book: though Captain America 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 out Hitler came only months before the US entered WWII, and at a time when most comics were referring to the Nazi menace in only an oblique fashion, if at all. There's also the fact that Cap's most memorable villain, the Red Skull, first appeared in the same issue, as did Cap's sidekick Bucky. It's simply a must have for any true Timely/Marvel collector! CGC notes, "Centerfold detached." Overstreet 2014 FN 6.0 value = $39,000; VF 8.0 value = $90,000. CGC census 11/14: 5 in 6.5, 21 higher.
