    Flash Comics #38 San Francisco pedigree (DC, 1943) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. If you ever wondered what a Golden Age comic (from the true Golden Age of 1938-43, before World War II paper rationing took its toll on comics' page count) looked like while still "on the stands," look no further than this incredible NM+ copy of Flash Comics #38. It's as glossy and fresh as the day someone paid a dime for it and took it home! Like many of the earlier books from this legendary collection, it has a small rubber-stamped "signature" of Tom Reilly on the back cover. Only five copies of this issue are currently graded by CGC, with this stunning example the best of the bunch. Of special note for this issue is a full-page advertisement for Comic Cavalcade #1, alongside art by Sheldon Moldoff and E. E. Hibbard. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $1,425. CGC census 7/05: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
