    Description

    Tom Mix Comics #1 (Ralston-Purina Co., 1940) CGC VG+ 4.5 Off-white to white pages. Here's a book that was featured on the want lists of many early comic book collectors. Jim Harmon's Nostalgia Catalog, published in 1973, gave this comic a big write-up. Originally offered as a mail-in premium by Ralston Wheat Cereal, it's truly a rare find today. Gerber estimates that only 11-20 copies exist; of the three copies listed in CGC's current census report, this book ranks as the highest-graded unrestored copy. A mailing label remains on the back cover, showing the original owner's name and address. Only one lucky bidder will be the next owner; will it be you? Overstreet 2003 VG 4.0 value = $1,050.
