    Captain America Comics #61 (Timely, 1947) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white to white pages. Syd Shores outdid himself with this snazzy Red Skull/bondage cover, which dramatically declares "The Red Skull Strikes Back!". The Red ranks as Cap's #1 adversary to this day, and these early covers are one reason for the appeal. This outstanding copy has beautiful colors, supple pages, and no stress creases on the spine. To date, only one other copy has been certified with a higher grade by CGC. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $3,650. CGC census 6/05: 1 in 9.2, 1 higher.
