    Captain America Comics #78 (Atlas, 1954) Condition: NM-. Warren Hall's run of the three "Atlas-revival" Cap issues is really something special, and while this one -- like his superb #76, offered in our last auction -- could not be encapsulated by CGC because of an overhang, we know of no finer copy, especially considering this one's white pages. Indeed, the highest-graded copy on CGC's census is just VF+ 8.5, so we expect a result here comparable to Mr. Hall's other two Caps which sold for 3x and 6x Guide respectively. This final issue of the proud original Timely-Atlas series was the last 1950s appearance of both Captain America and the Human Torch. Dick Ayers drew the Torch story, while the cover and the rest of the issue were the work of John Romita Sr. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $1,500. From the Warren Hall Collection.
