And if even that's not enough historical significance for you, this issue has Baby Huey's first appearance and origin as well. Wait, we're not even done yet: there's also the first appearance of Herman the Mouse (later part of the Herman and Katnip duo). Overstreet 2020 GD 2.0 value = $595. CGC census 6/21: 4 in 2.5, 36 higher.
