    Marvel Mystery Comics #17 (Timely, 1941) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. To us, the very strong eye appeal outweighs whatever small flaws might have limited this book to a VF- grade. Scrutinize our scan and we doubt you'll disagree! The Alex Schomburg cover is awesome, and note that it features a Human Torch and Sub-Mariner team-up -- not only was the superhero team-up a very new concept at that time, but as documented elsewhere in this section, the two had just battled each other a few issues before. The icing on the cake: the back cover is a neat-o pinup. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $2,079. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 7.5, 4 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
