    Description

    Showcase #22 Green Lantern (DC, 1959) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. Feast your eyes on this, Silver Age fans, it's the sole highest-graded copy of the first appearance of the Silver Age Green Lantern! For whatever reason, this issue's very difficult to find even in FN or better, so we were wowed by this census-topper. Especially pleasing to the eye is that it's such a well-centered copy, as so many have part of the white back cover showing on the front and spoiling the fun. Not only does Hal Jordan make his debut here, the book also has the first appearances of Abin Sur (the alien who gives Hal his powers) and Carol Ferris (Hal's love interest and also his boss!). Gil Kane handled the cover and interior art. Overstreet 2006 VF/NM 9.0 value = $5,592; NM- 9.2 value = $8,000. CGC census 3/06: 1 in 9.0, none higher.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
