    Description

    Action Comics #13 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. The fourth Superman cover appearance. The scarcity of this book is very underrated -- in fact, this is actually the first complete copy of #13 Heritage has ever offered (for comparison's sake, we have sold fourteen Action #1s in that time)! Issues #1, 7, and 10 were the only previous Superman covers, and of course the character did not become the permanent cover star until #19. Remember that the sight of a man stopping a train, commonplace in comics in years to come, was brand new at the time! One of Overstreet's top 100 Golden Age books. Overstreet 2011 VG 4.0 value = $3,530; FN 6.0 value = $5,295. CGC census 2/12: 1 in 5.0, 5 higher.

    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.
