    Famous Funnies #1 (Eastern Color, 1934) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages. One look at the condition of this book, and you would never guess that it was printed in 1934. Some creasing and edge wear keep this one from grading higher, but...quite frankly, this is the kind of book that routinely passes as VG to VG+. Clean and solid, with no chipping or flaking, the freshness of this copy means that it will be around for decades to come. Overstreet lists this comic as Rare, while Ernie Gerber assigned it a "9" on the Scarcity Index! This is the first monthly newsstand comic, and features comic strip reprints of Mutt and Jeff, Toonerville Folks, Tailspin Tommy, Dixie Duggan, Joe Palooka and other, as well as games, puzzles and magic. Overstreet 2002 GD 2.0 value = $3,000; FN 6.0 value = $9,000.
