    All-Negro Comics #1 Crowley pedigree (All-Negro Comics, 1947) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. The epitome of esotericity, this one-shot's back cover promised features on Ace Harlem, Sugarfoot (no, not Will Hutchins), and Snakeoil in the following issue, which, alas, never was published. And apparently not many of this issue, a 15-cent oddity, were published; Gerber gives the book an almost unheard of rating of "very rare," signifying that only six to ten copies are estimated to still be in existence. To further enhance the allure, Overstreet advises the book is "seldom found in fine or mint condition; many copies have brown pages." Yet your friends at Heritage have one of the rare copies in the seldom-found grade of FN+, and it's a pedigree copy at that! CGC's census lists this as the second-highest graded copy to be certified to date. We have offered just two other copies over the past 2 1/2 years, the top-rated VF- 7.5, and a GD+ 2.5, both of which enticed vigorous bidding interest, as this offering is bound to do. Please note that a small plastic stabilizing peg has broken loose from the CGC holder. This does not affect the comic or the integrity of the holder. Overstreet 2007 FN 6.0 value = $2,400; VF 8.0 value = $4,500. CGC census 5/07: 2 in 6.5, 1 higher.
