    Description

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Mirage Studios, 1984) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. The attraction here, besides the astonishingly high grade, is the fact that both Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird have signed this copy, and have provided a sketch of one of the Turtles on the inside front cover. This is, of course, the origin and first appearances of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Splinter, and Shredder. The wraparound cover is by Kevin Eastman, with Eastman and Peter Laird story and art. As we had sold this prestigious copy previously, the sketch and signatures were imaged prior to encapsulation. These images can be seen at HA.com, in our Auction Archives. One of only 3,000 copies printed of this first issue of this independent rarity. CGC notes, "'Kevin Eastman', 'Peter Laird' & sketch on interior cover in pen." Overstreet 2017 NM- 9.2 value = $4,500. CGC census 2/18: 43 in 9.6, 23 higher.
