    Captain America Comics #nn (Timely, 1942) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white to white pages. This is just the third complete copy we've ever seen of this rarity, and the demand for this item is such that we have auctioned incomplete copies for as much as $5,400! Overstreet ranks this among the top 50 Golden Age books and calls it "very rare." The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books gives it an "8" ("rare" by its scale) and our best guess is that no more than 10-12 copies exist. It reprints Marvel Mystery #33 and Captain America #18 in black and white. Showcased is the artwork of Carl Burgos, Syd Shores, and Al Avison. Also, the wartime text feature "Jap Trap" is notable because it's by Mickey Spillane. The book bears the copyright "Universal Crime Stories Inc." Overstreet 2012 VG 4.0 value = $12,000. CGC census 11/12: 1 in 4.5, 1 higher.
