    Superman #1 (DC, 1939) Incomplete Copy With Cover Reproduction. A professional cover replacement makes an attractive package for this incomplete copy of a super-key! The cover is on thicker paper-stock that more closely approximates a real cover than some other replacements we've seen over the years. The outermost wrap and middle two wraps are also replacements. The replacement cover/pages were reproduced from reprint editions.
    The original comic pages here have no sign of brittleness, or even edge tanning, nor foxing or any other serious flaws. The outermost of the original wraps is detached from the staples, though the other wraps are firmly attached.
    Complete copies of this book sell for tens of thousands of dollars -- it is the third most-valuable comic in the hobby after all -- so for a budget in the four-figure range this is a very presentable alternative. Some say this book is second only to Action #1 in significance, since it demonstrated that a character who started in the comics could carry his own title. That makes this book sought-after in any grade! Overstreet 2011 GD 2.0 value = $33,333.
