    Description

    Mystic Comics #1 Allentown pedigree (Timely, 1940) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. Not only is this Allentown copy the highest-graded that CGC has certified to date, it's the only copy graded above VF- 7.5! This Timely title may have been short-lived (only ten issues), but interest is such that this premiere issue is on Overstreet's list of the 100 most valuable comics of the Golden Age. Scarcity is also a factor, as this is a Gerber "7." Alex Schomburg's striking bondage cover adorns the issue. One thing that set this series apart from Timely's other anthology titles is that for the most part, each issue had different characters than the one before. Making their first appearances here are the Blue Blaze, Dynamic Man, Flexo the Rubber Robot, and Dakor. The Allentown collection is known for having the best known copy of a number of key books, and since that's the case here, this is one that any Timely collector will want to zero in on. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $22,000. CGC census 11/05: 1 in 9.2, none higher.
