    Adventure Comics #42 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. The original Golden Age Sandman, complete with mask, green hat, purple cape, and gas gun, makes his second cover appearance with this issue. This Creig Flessel illustration is fantastic -- very moody and atmospheric. Even more fantastic is this pedigreed copy, originally part of the legendary Edgar Church collection, and the highest graded copy (by a long shot; the next best comes in at a paltry 7.0) currently listed by CGC. Finding a copy of this 1939 gem can be a real chore that may take many years; finding one as nice as this is nearly impossible! Aren't you glad you're a Heritage customer? This one's yours -- for the right bid! Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $10,500. CGC census 7/05: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
