    Tip Topper Comics #16 (United Feature Syndicate, 1952) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. This unassuming, mild-mannered appearing issue is a big deal! It has the third ever appearance of Charlie Brown and the other Peanuts characters! The issue came out just one month after Tip Top Comics #173 and United Comics #21, which tie for the first appearance in comic books of Charles Schulz's iconic children. Enough collectors are in the know to have pushed a CGC 7.5 copy of this issue in a 2018 auction to nearly 8x Guide! At the time it was the highest-graded CGC copy, but no longer! This copy blows that one (still the next-highest copy) and every other copy away -- Near Mint and white pages! Overstreet 2018 NM- 9.2 value = $700. CGC census 5/19: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
