    New Comics #6 (DC, 1936) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. This Gerber "rare" issue is a real find in this condition. Overstreet doesn't even list a higher grade value than 8.0. Whitney Ellsworth's cover art was a staple of the Platinum Age DCs, and the co-creators of Superman, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, cut their teeth here well before Action Comics #1. CGC notes, "From the Collection of Nicolas Cage." Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $5,000. CGC census 1/05: 2 in 8.0, none higher. From the Northern Lights Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
