    Description

    Tip Top Comics #173 (United Feature Syndicate, 1952) CGC VG/FN 5.0 White pages. This important issue ties with United Comics #21 as the first comic book appearance of Charles Schulz's Peanuts, and consequently the issue is fetching many multiples of the Overstreet Guide value, which has not yet caught up to the current market demand. In fact, the only other copy of #173 that we have ever offered was a FR 1.0 copy that sold last year for an impressive $1,314.50! Nancy and Sluggo, however, get the cover nod on the issue. Overstreet 2018 VG 4.0 value = $258; FN 6.0 value = $387. CGC census 11/18: 3 in 5.0, 3 higher.
