    Turtlemania Special #1 Gold Edition (Metropolis Comics, 1986) CGC Qualified NM- 9.2 White pages. Talk about a small print run: only ten copies of the Gold edition were made! So it's probably more than fair to call this the rarest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. We heard that a CGC Qualified 9.0 copy sold for $58,000 in another venue back in 2019, and suffice it to say we think demand will be very strong for this copy as well. The Gold Edition has an orange outer cover. Inside is a pin-up by Bob Burden of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Cerebus, and Flaming Carrot. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird furnished cover and art. CGC notes, "Sketch, '6/10', 'Peter Laird 5/4/86', and 'Kevin Eastman 86' written on back cover in ink." Not listed in Overstreet.
