All-American Comics #18 Billy Wright pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. By far the best copy we've seen of a book that's tough to find in any grade! In the ten years Heritage has been auctioning comics we had seen just two copies previously, the "best" being a sorry GD+. Like so many other comics in this collection, this is ranked among Overstreet's top 100 Golden Age books.
    The scarcity is just one part of the appeal -- another is that it's just the third appearance of Green Lantern (with his first two also being offered in this auction). It also has the original Atom in one panel, pre-dating that character's first full appearance in the next issue. And the Sheldon Moldoff cover has a delightful New York World's Fair scene, only adding to the collectibilty.
    And while a 7.5 copy is major news, we would go so far as to say the book presents better than that grade -- by all means have a look for yourself.
    Overstreet 2011 VF 8.0 value = $8,740. CGC census 2/12: 1 in 7.5, none higher.
