    Description

    Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #1 (Dell, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. Not only is this the only copy graded above VF+ 8.5 by CGC to date, it's one of only two graded above FN+ 6.5. Moreover, it's the only copy of any issue from #1-15 to be graded above 9.0! When you consider that even a strictly graded GD copy is worth a thousand dollars, gauging the possible auction result for this book becomes a difficult, though immensely enjoyable, exercise.
    It warms the heart to find out that a copy this nice even exists, and we trust you'll scrutinize our scan to verify that this is a true Near Mint book.
    This is the first issue of what Overstreet called "The definitive funny animal anthology comic after which all others were modeled." It is the first regularly published Disney comic book, and it remains the best-selling comic series of all time, peaking in the early 1950s at nearly four million copies an issue! The series has been in near-continuous publication since and is about to hit #700 as we write this.
    This copy hails from what has been dubbed the "Crescent City collection," so named because it was sold in New Orleans.
    If you collect Disney comics, this stunning copy of #1 would surely become the crown jewel of your collection the day you acquire it. We couldn't imagine what might top it.
    Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $33,000. CGC census 9/08: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
