    Red Raven Comics #1 Billy Wright Pedigree (Timely, 1940) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. Finding this Gerber "7" early Timely in any unrestored grade is a real find, but in this grade just about impossible. Over our 19 years of auctioning comics, we've offered just 9 other unrestored copies, mostly low to mid-grade ones, and never in a higher certified grade than this. It has the first signed work of Jack Kirby, which alone makes it historical. The title became The Human Torch with the next issue, so if you want a Timely Red Raven issue, this is your only option! It deservedly resides on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. Overstreet 2020 VF/NM 9.0 value = $29,650; NM- 9.2 value = $43,000. CGC census 4/21: 3 in 9.0, 1 higher.
