    Superman #1 Incomplete (DC, 1939) CGC PR 0.5 Off-white pages. From the front, this looks like a mid-grade copy, so if you want eye appeal, this is the book for you! Of course, having no back cover is a major flaw, but since a mid-grade unrestored copy would cost in the neighborhood of half a million dollars, this is certainly a tempting alternative at a fraction of the price. A holy grail of the hobby, considerable bragging rights are included with this book. This is a milestone book, as historically important as the likes of Batman #1, Action Comics #1, and Detective Comics #27. Classic cover by Joe Shuster. CGC notes, "Back cover missing. Front cover detached. Incomplete". Overstreet 2015 GD 2.0 value = $50,000. CGC census 5/16: 7 in 0.5, 37 higher.
