    Description

    Harvey Hits #3 File Copy (Harvey, 1957) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to off-white pages. This key issue is the very first comic devoted solely to Richie Rich. Starting originally as a backup character in Little Dot, it took him four years to get his own comic, and three more years after that until he starred in his own regularly published title. This particular copy was saved by the title's editor as part of his personal reference file, and we are pleased to offer a very small, select set of issues starring Richie Rich. The personal file copies of the editor have fresher paper than the other Harvey file copies that were stored in an unairconditioned warehouse. Richie Rich has not only grown to become an American icon, but, at one time, was featured on as many as 35 concurrently-published titles, more than any other comic character ever. According to the CGC census, this is the only and highest-graded copy, and it is quite possibly the best copy in existence. Much more important and difficult to find than Richie Rich #1, this copy will be a showpiece in the winning bidder's collection. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $1,150.
