    Adventure Comics #247 (DC, 1958) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. This is the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes, and this is the highest-graded copy Heritage has ever offered! The issue is one of Overstreet's top 20 Silver Age books, and was propelled to that status by the fanatical following that the Legion enjoys. The issue had the first appearances of Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lighting Boy (later Lightning Lad). "Originally conceived as throwaway characters for a single story, fan and sales response to the Legion was so great that they soon received their own series," Paul Levitz wrote. This book is quite difficult to find in any grade above Fine/Very Fine 7.0, in fact just twelve copies have been certified above FN/VF by CGC. Curt Swan cover. Overstreet 2011 VF/NM 9.0 value = $10,000; NM- 9.2 value = $15,000. CGC census 8/11: 1 in 9.0, 4 higher.
