    Superboy #86 (DC, 1961) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. By far the best copy we've offered of this issue. As we've noted before, purple covers expose flaws even more than black covers do, so we can't stop staring at this copy and its near-perfect background. We had never graded a copy of #86 higher than VF-, and while the David N. Toth copy was superb, it ran afoul of that DC Silver Age bugaboo, the popped staple, and it also lacked this copy's very nice centering. This is one of the standout early-60s issues of the title, since it has the fourth appearance of Legion of Super-Heroes. It's also got the first appearance of Superboy's pal Pete Ross. Curt Swan cover art. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $360. CGC census 4/10: 2 in 9.4, none higher. From the Levittown Collection.
