    Captain America's Weird Tales #74 (Timely, 1949) CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. By the late 1940s, Timely wasn't quite sure what to do with this title. America was between wars, so the super-patriot theme wasn't quite as compelling. With this issue, "Weird Tales" was added to the title to capitalize on the budding genre of horror comics. Overstreet lists this as a classic cover and touts the issue as "scarce." Gerber goes further, rating the book as "rare." An extraordinary issue indeed, as is this copy, the finest that CGC has verified to date. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $3,000.
