    Description

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Mirage Studios, 1984) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. A stunning first printing copy of a steadily hot book, featuring the origins and first appearances of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Splinter, and Shredder. This issue had an initial print run of just 3,000 copies, making high-grade copies scarce in general; this particular copy bears the highest grade assigned to this issue by CGC to date. The wraparound cover is by Kevin Eastman, and the story and interior art are by Eastman and Peter Laird. We were fortunate enough to sell 9.8s twice before, and both times we heard later from people kicking themselves for not bidding higher. Don't be that person! Overstreet 2016 NM- 9.2 value = $4,000. CGC census 5/17: 23 in 9.8, none higher. From the Acceptance Collection.
