    Action Comics #7 Trimmed (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VG/FN 5.0 Moderate (P) White pages. Why National Periodical waited until the seventh issue of the title to feature Superman's second cover appearance is anyone's guess, but we're pretty sure his appearance is the reason that Overstreet ranks this book as one of the top dozen most valuable Golden Age comics of all.
    We've actually seen considerably less copies of this issue than of Supes' first cover appearance on #1! In fact, the GD/VG copy that we sold in November of 2010 went for $20,315, and the VG/FN copy that we sold in May of 2009 went for $47,800 -- both well over guide. We expect no less "Action" on this moderately restored copy. Of course, the story and art are by Superman's creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. This 64-pager also has a host of other features, including art by the likes of Bernard Baily and Shelly Moldoff. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced, staples replaced. (Tape on centerfold) (All 3 Edges Trimmed)". Overstreet 2013 GD 2.0 value = $6,060; VG 4.0 value = $12,120.
