    Showcase #3 The Frogmen (DC, 1956) CGC VF+ 8.5 White pages. This issue was ranked the toughest of the run to find in Very Fine or better a couple of years ago, and while there are others contending for that throne, we say this one's just tough to find, period -- the nicest we had ever offered previously was just VG/FN! There were no further "Frogmen" issues, but before dismissing the concept as a failure, consider that the Sea Devils, who debuted in #27 of this same series, had a similar concept and also profited from superb grey tone underwater covers by Russ Heath similar to the outstanding one seen here. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $748; VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,424. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 8.5, 1 higher. From the Motor City Showcase Run.
