    Description

    Showcase #9 (DC, 1957) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. This early issue of the title was the first of two Lois Lane tryout issues. And, even though the Flash and the Challengers of the Unknown had earlier tryouts (by 10 months and 8 months respectively) in this title, Superman's girlfriend got her own title earlier, just eight months after this issue. The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books doesn't indicate this book to be uncommon or even "less than average" insofar as numbers still in existence are concerned, but collectors will verify how difficult this issue is to find in high-grade. CGC has awarded a grade higher than "8.0" to only two copies, and our offering has earned the higher grade. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $9,000.
