    Superman #146 (DC, 1961) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. There are a bunch of 9.2 copies, but this one stands alone in this grade! Superman's origin was refined and expanded upon many times over the years, and this thorough account explains more about why he has super powers. The issue even told kids why Clark Kent's glasses never seem to get damaged (they're pieces of the rocket from Krypton that brought Superman to Earth). Overstreet notes that the backup feature hints at an Earth-Two, just a couple of months before more was revealed in Flash #123. Curt Swan drew the issue's cover, and what a cover! Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $375. CGC census 4/08: 1 in 9.4, none higher. From the David N. Toth Collection.
