    Four Color #386 Uncle Scrooge (Dell, 1952) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet considers this to be the first issue of the Uncle Scrooge series, and we consider this copy to be a shining example of the issue! Uncle Scrooge stars in "Only A Poor Old Man". This was the first cover appearance of Uncle Scrooge. Carl Barks, "The Good Duck Artist", provided the story, cover, and art for the issue. Inside, the dastardly Beagle Boys make an unlawful appearance. Overstreet 2017 VF/NM 9.0 value = $3,739; NM- 9.2 value = $6,000. CGC census 8/17: 18 in 9.0, 16 higher. From the Robert E.
