    Description

    Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. We've never offered a nicer unrestored copy of the issue that's firmly entrenched at #3 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. And while CGC has certified fewer of its older DC siblings, Action Comics #1 and Detective Comics #27, Superman #1 is actually more difficult to find in this grade and higher. Over the years we've seen far more restored copies of the iconic issue than unrestored. Superman co-creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster provide the story and art for this premiere issue, which features the first pin-up of the Man of Steel on the back cover and retells the origin inside. Overstreet 2018 VG 4.0 value = $172,000; FN 6.0 value = $344,000. CGC census 5/19: 3 in 5.0, 7 higher. From the Robert Huber Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
