    Casper the Friendly Ghost #1 (St. John, 1949) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white pages. The Friendly Ghost had appeared in Paramount cartoon features, but until this first comic issue was published, the name Casper had not been used. Besides introducing Casper, this issue also marked the origins and first appearances of Baby Huey and Herman the Mouse. Listed as an "uncommon" issue by Gerber, only one other copy has been reviewed by CGC at this writing. This is a solid mid-grade with well-preserved colors and no outstanding distractions, just an even accumulation of stress and wear around the edges consistent with the assigned grade. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $164; FN 6.0 value = $492.
