    Description

    Funnies On Parade #nn (Eastern Color, 1933) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Cream to off-white pages. This is the first comic book ever published, and this copy is the only unrestored copy we've ever seen! This was a giveaway book, produced for Procter and Gamble with a print run of 10,000. Gerber gave this a scarcity rating of "8" in his Photo-Journal. The comic was sent for free to customers who clipped coupons from the company's products -- charging a dime for this new item would come later! The contents were all reprinted Sunday funnies. When you compare the significance to the Guide values, this would have to be considered one of the biggest bargains in all of comic collecting. Overstreet 2008 VG 4.0 value = $2,000; FN 6.0 value = $3,000. CGC census 4/08: 1 in 5.0, 4 higher. From the Kylberg Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
