    All-Negro Comics #1 (All-Negro Comics, 1947) CBCS FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. We have only seen one higher-graded copy in our 15 years of comic auctions and that one was a 7.5 VF- copy. Not many copies of this 15-cent oddity were published, and Gerber gives the book an almost unheard of rating of 9, or "very rare," signifying that only 6 to 10 copies are estimated to be in existence. To further enhance the allure of the book, Overstreet notes that the book is "seldom found in fine or mint condition; many copies have brown pages." So this captivating copy exceeds expectations on just about every level, and is certainly one of the finest copies in existence. This one-shot's back cover promised a second issue of the title which, alas, never was published. Note that this copy bears the CBCS "Check Mark", denoting appearance superior to the grade! Overstreet 2016 FN 6.0 value = $6,000; VF 8.0 value = $10,800. CGC census 11/16: 3 in 7.0, 2 higher.
