    Overstreet Price Guide #1 Second Printing (Bob Overstreet, 1970) Condition: VF/NM. This is the blue-cover second printing of the very first Comic Book Price Guide... who could have dreamed back in 1970 that this guide to collectibles would itself become a collectible? After the first printing sold out, this second printing was released later the same year, with Bob Overstreet and his family collating and stapling every copy! That hand-binding meant that copies didn't stand up to wear and tear very well, and this is easily the nicest copy we've seen of this edition. The prices are, of course, an entertaining read for any comic lover of today -- Detective Comics #27 was priced at all of $275 in Mint condition ("top of Guide" is $450,000 today), and the Big Book of Fun Comics had a Mint value of $2! Don't miss out on the book that helped make comic fandom what it is today. Overstreet 2006 Fine value = $750 (no VF/NM value listed for this item); Near Mint value = $1,500.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
