    Description

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 First Printing (Mirage Studios, 1984) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Looking for a 1980s comic to invest in, but worried about warehouse finds that will devalue your item overnight? Then this first printing is the perfect book, the first appearance of beloved superstar characters (high demand), but with a meager 3,000-copy print run (low supply). CGC notes, "'Kevin Eastman,' 'Peter Laird,' & sketch written on interior cover in pen." Overstreet still does not list a value, noting "prices vary widely," but does mention a 9.6 sale in 2009 for $11,500. The most high-grade Heritage sale was $3,107 for a 9.2 copy (a grade lower than the one offered here) in February of this year. CGC census 11/11: 6 in 9.4, 4 higher.
