    All-American Comics #16 (DC, 1940) CGC VG- 3.5 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet ranks this issue fourth among its Top 100 Golden Age Comics, ahead of even the first issues of Batman, Captain America Comics, and Flash Comics. Sheldon Moldoff's most famous cover, among his many memorables, introduces the Green Lantern to the world in 1940, and the character has survived several incarnations to this day. Overstreet lists this as a "rare" book; Gerber in his The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books calls it "scarce." Let's not split hairs; it doesn't show up very often in any condition. Overstreet 2013 VG 4.0 value = $38,000. CGC census 5/14: 7 in 3.5, 12 higher.
