    Description

    Century of Comics #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white to white pages. Generally recognized as the third comic book ever produced, this was distributed as a premium giveaway by Wheatena, Malt-O-Milk, Kinney Shoes, and others. Not surprisingly, it's rated "scarce" by The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books, and is next to non-existent in even this modest of a grade. CGC notes, "From the Personal Collection of William M. Gaines," and this is significant since Bill Gaines' father was the man who produced this comic! Overstreet 2014 FN 6.0 value = $6,690. CGC census 5/15: 4 in 5.5, 3 higher.
