    Description

    True Love Pictorial #3 (St. John, 1953) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Romance comics from the early 50s are very rarely found in 9.6 condition, but a square bound one? All but impossible, or so we thought until this superbly preserved copy proved us wrong. And a Matt Baker cover is the icing on the cake. The interior art is by Baker and Joe Kubert. We hadn't seen any issue of True Love Pictorial before the day we wrote this, and there can't be very many out there, as this is the only copy of #3 that CGC has certified to date. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $385. CGC census 5/05: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
