    Captain America Comics #1 (Timely, 1941). Timely's most popular key issue, Captain America #1 has a lot going for it: the introduction of comicdom's favorite patriotic hero by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, the first appearance of Cap's ultimate arch-nemesis the Red Skull, and an ultra-classic cover featuring Cap socking Hitler in the jaw. This series would last the duration of the 1940s, with a small revival in the '50s, before Cap became a mainstay of the comic community during the Marvel Age, enjoying vast popularity to the present day. This copy is beautiful, almost a VF, that has a small amount of professional color touch and a minor bump to the upper spine area. The colors are deep, something to be appreciated since most copies exhibit faded covers. Cap #1 has shown incredible growth over the last decade, ascending to the seventh position of Overstreet's top ten, and setting records along the way. No doubt the owner of this book will be envied by many. CGC Apparent VF- 7.5 Slight (P) Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 FN 6.0 value = $17,100; VF 8.0 value = $39,900.
