    Superman #1 Coverless/Incomplete (DC, 1939) NG Off-white to white pages. Currently ranked at #3 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, it's a key book, in high demand in any grade, so this coverless, incomplete copy of the rare Superman #1 will have its share of suitors. Cover or not, this is one of the hobby's holy grail issues, and it is still one of only 65 copies to earn a CGC blue Universal label to date. It's also on the rise, with the Overstreet NM- 9.2 value jumping by a stunning $300,000 from 2017 to 2019. Superman received a new two page origin with this premiere issue. Joe Shuster art. CGC notes, "Coverless, 1st & 2nd wrap missing. Affects story." Overstreet 2019 GD 2.0 value = $100,000.
