    All-American Comics #17 (DC, 1940) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. DC icon Green Lantern made his second-ever appearance in this issue! And this is the only copy certified above 7.0 by CGC to date. Also, our experience is that this book is tougher to find than #16, and indeed CGC has certified just 18 copies (including restored books) as of this writing compared with 31 of the prior issue. Overstreet ranks #17 among the 100 most valuable Golden Age books. GL is drawn by Sheldon Moldoff on the cover; inside, the character is rendered by his creator, Martin Nodell. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $10,750; VF/NM 9.0 value = $19,125. CGC census 9/09: 1 in 8.5, none higher.
