    Description

    Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC FR/GD 1.5 Off-white to white pages. One of the most important comic books of all time! Superman #1 is currently ranked the third most valuable comic book of all, with Overstreet's NM- value approaching the million dollar mark. Of course, most comic experts would likely call that a conservative estimate, considering that the highest grade CGC has certified to date is a "mere" VF 8.0, and the highest-graded Universal (unrestored) copy we've ever sold was a VG/FN 5.0. Superman gets a new two- page origin in the issue, which has a striking back cover pin-up -- the first one in comics! The book has the appearance of a higher grade, but, as CGC notes, the "Spine of cover completely split & cover detached." Joe Shuster cover and art. Overstreet 2015 GD 2.0 value = $50,000. CGC census 11/15: 5 in 1.5, 26 higher.
