    Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC Apparent VG/FN 5.0 Moderate/Extensive (B-4) White pages. The origin of Superman is presented in dramatic fashion in this inaugural issue, with story and art by the Man of Steel's co-creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. This is, of course, one of the most desirable comic books ever published and one of the toughest finds in high grade. In fact, if one considers a high-grade comic to be VF 8.0 or nicer, CGC has certified only two unrestored, high-grade copies of Superman #1 to date, with the rest grading FN at best. That means there just aren't many better-looking copies around than our offering -- especially one with white pages! CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, reinforced, staples replaced. (All three edges trimmed.)". Overstreet 2015 GD 2.0 value = $50,000; VG 4.0 value = $100,000. From the Walter Yakabowski Collection.
