    Description

    Famous Funnies: A Carnival of Comics #nn with Original Mailing Envelope (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. This book is certainly notable, considered to be the second comic ever published. In terms of grade, only two other copies share the Very Fine/Near Mint distinction according to the CGC census. What makes this copy especially neat, is that it comes with the original envelope that the Wheatena Corporation used to ship this promotional comic. As the book was printed without any publisher information, envelopes like this one have been a great aid for comic historians looking to learn more about the book's origin. As you can imagine, this fantastic piece of history is one you're not likely to see again soon. The envelope comes intact with some fraying along the edges. Overstreet 2009 VF/NM 9.0 value = $8,900; NM- 9.2 value = $13,000. CGC census 4/09: 3 in 9.0, none higher.
