    Young Love #1 (Prize, 1949) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white pages. What a treat it is to finally see the first issue of this title -- you're looking at the only copy of #1 that CGC has certified to date. The series was created by Simon and Kirby as the companion title to Young Romance, and S&K drew the cover in addition to contributing some interior art. This ended up being one of the longest-running romance series, being taken over by DC and making it all the way until the late 1970s as one of the very last love comics on newsstands. Truly a must-have for anyone who collects this genre. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $268; VF/NM 9.0 value = $422. CGC census 3/06: 1 in 8.5, none higher. From the Collection of Harold Curtis.
