    Description

    Toy World Funnies #nn Wanamaker's Giveaway (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC GD/VG 3.0 Light tan to off-white pages. Probably the rarest comic in this auction, it is certainly the earliest! This is a rare variation of Funnies On Parade, which is considered the first modern comic book. It's produced in the same format, with similar contents, and the same cover, with the exception of the large Santa Claus in the center. Considering that this was produced for one single department store in New York City, the print run must have been fairly small. This is the very first copy that we have ever offered and it's currently the only CGC-graded copy. Overstreet does not list a value, noting, "value will be based on sale." CGC census 3/16: 1 in 3.0, none higher.
