    Description

    Single Series #15 How It Began - Vancouver pedigree (United Features Syndicate, 1939) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. This is the earliest comic in the Vancouver collection, so "How It Began" is a fitting title! We hadn't seen this one in high grade before, and never expected to see it in this high of a grade. It's the only copy CGC has certified to date. Overstreet 2007 NM- 9.2 value = $415. CGC census 6/07: 1 in 9.2, none higher.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
