    Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. With a sock to Hitler's jaw, Captain America makes his auspicious comics debut on this cover by the then-fledgling artist who would be "King," Jack Kirby. One of the giants in comics, Kirby's creations and distinctive art would continue until his death over 50 years after his most famous character blazed onto the scene in 1941. Breathtaking in its scope and audacity, Cap is then, now, and forever America's ultimate super-patriot. This issue also features first appearances of Cap's sidekick, Bucky, and of his nemesis, the Red Skull. This unrestored book ranks high among the finest copies CGC lists in the most current census available. Just four unrestored copies have earned higher grades from CGC to date, only one of which exceeded VF/NM 9.0, making our offering particularly enticing to the serious collector. Overstreet 2003 VF 8.0 value = $49,060.
