    Description

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Mirage Studios, 1984) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. A practically perfect first edition copy of the comic that launched a pop culture mega-franchise spanning 30 years -- not bad for an indie book with an initial print run of a mere 3,000 copies. Needless to say, high-grade copies are quite scarce, and this particular specimen has the highest grade assigned to this issue by CGC to date. The contents feature the origin and first appearances of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, their mentor Splinter, and archenemy Shredder. The wraparound cover by Kevin Eastman. The story and art are by Eastman and Peter Laird. Overstreet 2014 NM- 9.2 value = $3,500. CGC census 11/14: 18 in 9.8, none higher.
