    Description

    Captain Marvel Adventures #nn (#1) (Fawcett, 1941) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. This is the highest-graded unrestored copy that CGC has certified! So you can see the validity of Overstreet's assertion that the book is "rarely found in Fine or Mint condition" because it was printed on unstable paper stock. We see this issue much less than the other Fawcett keys, and as one of Overstreet's Top 30 Golden Age books, it's an issue we can't get enough of. At its height, this series was the bestselling comic in America, with total sales for the 1944 issues surpassing 14 million copies! It even went biweekly to meet demand at one point. This is the one and only issue of the title to have Jack Kirby art, as it was drawn on the "night shift" at the time Kirby was working on Captain America by day. This first issue's cover art is by C. C. Beck. This book was not present in most of the top "pedigree" collections, and note that the next highest-graded copy on CGC's census is a 4.0! Overstreet 2009 VG 4.0 value = $5,500; FN 6.0 value = $8,250. CGC census 4/10: 2 in 5.0, none higher.
