    Description

    Special Edition Comics #1 (Fawcett, 1940) CGC Apparent FN/VF 7.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages.

Beck, drew this now-famous cover in addition to providing spectacular interior artwork. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, spine splits sealed, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced." Overstreet 2008 GD 2.0 value = $743; VG 4.0 value = $1,486; FN 6.0 value = $2,229.
