    Description

    All Select Comics #1 Pennsylvania pedigree (Timely, 1943) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. One of the greatest Golden Age covers is this classic by Alex Schomburg, one of the most acclaimed comic artists of that era. This cover is reprinted in many books about comics, and rightly so. Captain America, the Human Torch, and Sub-Mariner were Timely's big three, and this series was created to give them even more exposure. The black area at the top is often found with chunks missing, or at least a few color breaks, so it's a special moment to see a high-grade copy. This is the best one Heritage has ever offered. CGC notes, "Very minor amount of glue on cover. Very minor amount of color touch on cover." Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $26,000. CGC census 6/09: 2 in 9.2, none higher.
