    Description

    Famous Funnies #3 (Eastern Color, 1934) CGC Apparent FN/VF 7.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. Four years before Action Comics #1 officially launched the Golden Age of Comics, this title was paving the way. In the third issue, Buck Rogers made his first ever comic book appearance. As you would expect, a copy in any condition is difficult to come by, and The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books rates this one "rare". The highest Universal grade CGC has handed out to date is FN+ 6.5; this one's got the highest Apparent grade. Overstreet doesn't even bother listing values for grades above VF 8.0. Nab it while you can! CGC notes, "Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, reinforced." Overstreet 2007 GD 2.0 value = $800; VG 4.0 value = $1,600; FN 6.0 value = $2,400; VF 8.0 value = $6,000.
