    Description

    Harvey Subscriber Copy Comics Group (Harvey, 1947). A Gerber "10" highlights this group of three rare subscriber-only digest-sized comics from Joe Simon's personal files: All-New Comics #15 (VF), Boy Explorers #2 (VF), and Stuntman #3 (FN+, has penciled correction marks on two pages). Gerber gave these three books scarcity ratings of 10, 8, and 9 respectively. Remember: "10" means "Unique, or close to it. Less than 5 known copies in existence."
    These comics were distributed to mail subscribers only. There's a notation on the first page that reads "For the present emergency, newsstand sales will be temporarily discontinued and subscribers alone will receive copies of these issues." Note that CGC will not encapsulate any copy of these because they are considered all but impossible to authenticate, so the Joe Simon Estate provenance of these is important.
    Also included with this lot is a rare Times-Star promotional pamphlet reprinting part of the Rex Morgan daily strip drug storyline, titled "Youth vs. Dope," that served as a basis for Harvey Comics Library #1 (VG+, not listed in Overstreet). Approximate Overstreet value for listed group = $2,225. From the Joe Simon Estate.
