    Description

    Green Lantern #1 (DC, 1960) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Seasoned DC collectors know that locating a high-grade example of this book is next to impossible. While some Silver Age keys have seen their CGC census reports fill up with high-grade copies in recent years, that is not the case with this book. Not even the David N. Toth collection, the source of so many of census-topping Silver Age DCs, provided a Near Mint copy (alas, Dr. Toth's run of Green Lantern did not begin until #8).

    Heritage previously auctioned this copy in 2003 for $18,975 (back when "top of Guide" was $4,000) but that price seems a veritable bargain now. In addition to the scarcity in high grade mentioned above, recent off-the-charts auction results for Showcase #22 (the first appearance of the Silver Age Green Lantern) show that this is no longer an underrated character.

    This one is fresher and better preserved than any other copy of this book that we have ever seen. With a flat, clean appearance, and off-white to white page quality, this is the copy of this genuine DC key.

    Gil Kane cover art. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $9,500. CGC census 1/10: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
