    Thor #156 (Marvel, 1968) CGC MT 10.0 White pages. That's right folks! Yes, you read the label correctly -- this is the oldest Gem Mint 10 newsstand comic book ever certified by CGC. While CGC has certified one older Mint 10 book, it was an eight-page promotional toothpaste giveaway (Kolynos Presents the White Guard, 1949). Let's put that in perspective: From the 1930s through 1974 this is one of only two Mint 10 comics certified by CGC, there were just 41 comics certified as Mint 10's from 1975 through 1984, and there were only 56 Mint 10's certified from 1986 to 1990! That makes less than 100 Mint 10's from the 1930s to 1990! This copy hails from the Mile High II Collection, although no COA is included, and was last auctioned by Chuck Rozanski, in 2001, for charity. The issue is part of the "Ragnarok" storyline, the basis for the third Thor feature film. Mangog and the Recorder make appearances, and Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta did the cover and interior art for the issue. We expect a fierce bidding battle for the rights to own this one! Overstreet 2020 NM- 9.2 value = $115. CGC census 4/21: 1 in 10.0, none higher.
