    Captain America Comics #78 (Timely, 1954) Condition: NM-. Probably the finest existing copy of this issue -- compare it to the CGC census which is topped by a VF+ 8.5! This copy, which has white pages, could not be encapsulated by CGC because of an overhang. It's originally from the Warren Hall collection, and was previously auctioned by Heritage for $4,182. This was the last issue of the proud original Timely-Atlas series, as well as 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 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $1,950.
