    Description

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (Mirage Studios, 1984) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. We have only offered nicer copies on two occasions, and neither of those were signed by the creators, nor did they have an original sketch of one of the turtles in them. This, of course, is the origin and first appearances of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Splinter, and Shredder. The wraparound cover is by Kevin Eastman, and Eastman and Peter Laird are responsible for the story and interior art. Only 3,000 copies of the first issue of this independent rarity were printed. CGC notes, " 'Kevin Eastman' and 'Peter Laird' & sketch written on interior cover in marker." Overstreet 2015 NM- 9.2 value = $3,500. CGC census 5/16: 38 in 9.6, 19 higher.
