    Marvel Mystery Comics #9 (Timely, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. Overstreet rates it a "classic" cover, and Schomburg didn't do it! The credit goes to Bill Everett, artistic interpreter of the Sub-Mariner over four decades. Everett has the Human Torch and Subby fighting again. Boys! Can't we just get along? Keep it up, and you'll never make it to the Silver Age! "Scarce," according to both Gerber and Overstreet, only two copies of the issue have fared as well as a Very Good in CGC's certification so far, and this is the highest-graded of the two. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $6,000.
