    Adventure Comics #261 (DC, 1959) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. This issue, featuring a teen-aged Lois Lane's first encounter with Superboy (shades of the "Smallville" television show!) is tough to find in any condition -- check the current CGC census, which contains only four copies in addition to this freshly-graded specimen. Naturally, with a grade like 9.6, this copy is the current census king! Curt Swan cover, with George Papp and Ramona Fradon interior art. Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $230. CGC census 4/08: 1 in 9.6, none higher. From the David N. Toth Collection.
