TH-1-012116-11Superman #1 CGC 7.5 MEGA KEY Iconic Cover Origin Shuster Siegel DC Golden Age Superman #1 1939 American Art Culture Treasure certified 7.5 by CGCSuperman is truly an American Treasure. Superman’s place in American History, Pop Culture and Comic History has been etched before most of us were even born!. Superman is known universally across the globe and is an icon in the same way the names of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth are. You can ask people who do not know a thing about sports and they will know exactly who each of those names are. In the same way, those that know little about comics know Superman. The significance of Superman in pop culture and American History cannot be understated and the significance of Superman #1 is broad and far reaching. Superman paved the way for countless others and began a trend that continues today and has become part of the fabric of our lives. Despite the fact that Action Comics #1 is the 1st appearance of the Man of Steel and it is also the comic that is known as the first true superhero comic, there is something uniquely special and Iconic about Superman #1.  It might be the fact that it is the first comic to have Superman in the title or the fact that it’s the first issue of his regular title completely dedicated to Superman or it might be simply the fact that the iconic yellow cover coupled with the elusive back cover pin up are etched indelibly in every comic fans brain. Not to be overlooked is the fact that Superman #1 is just about as hard a book to acquire as Action Comics #1.  How can you get this comic book for FREE?You should open an Overstreet Comic Book price guide from 1975 you will understand how this book is better than free.  It holds the secrets of the wealthy and how by the having money to purchase fabulous artifacts like this you ALWAYS make money by holding them.  In fact, it doesn’t matter what you pay for a book like this, its quality, demand and future is assured.·      Superman # 1 has never gone down in value.·      The number of collectors is always increasing as the supply of this book is decreasing due to damage, loss, black hole collections and changes in market perception like restoration. ·      This comic is authenticated and certified by a third party, the industry’s best, CGC, graded a 7.5, an unprecedented level of security that you are getting exactly what you want.  This is an opportunity for any Comic, American History, Pop Culture, Art and rarity collector as well as any investor, or anyone else wants to own something special that can be displayed, treasured or just bragged about. This is a chance to join an exclusive club of people who own a copy of this national treasure. There are an estimated 150 to 250 copies said to exist and 111 or less (CGC census is sometimes inaccurately high due to resubmissions that are not removed from census) have walked thru CGC's doors since their inception. There are only 2 unrestored CGC copies that have graded higher than 6.0 and only 14 restored copies that have graded high than 7.0. That's a small amount compared to the 800,000 copies printed originally in 1939 and an even a smaller amount compared to the millions that want to own a copy within today's collector/investor base. The reason for the shortage of copies of this comic is primarily due to the World War II paper drive. Kids and families across the nation were encouraged to help America's effort in gathering resources to fight the Axis of Evil. Tons and tons of Golden Age comics were sacrificed because it was seen as your civic duty to help your country. With less than 250 believed to still exist, the demand for this comic is phenomenal. Make no mistake about it; someone will be the new owner of this special piece since we are proud to offer the example of this Grail with NO RESERVE. This particular Superman #1 has been professional examined and graded by CGC the top 3rd party independent comic grading service within the hobby and assigned a grade of 7.5. CGC has confirmed all the paper restoration work done and has assigned the appropriate grade. Unlike other restored copies, even the trained eye would have a hard time spotting the professional restoration job on the brilliant cover, which looks every bit VF/NM. THERE ARE ONLY 7 OTHER EXAMPLES THAT HAVE GRADED HIGHER! Given the fact that a copy of this condition would cost easily $1 million dollars if unrestored, this will be the best chance for many to acquire a copy for a more attainable amount. Restored copies, in lesser grade and that do not look as nice as this book have sold in excess of $45,000. Close your eyes and imagine this comic on your wall or in your trophy case or just being able to say you own a copy.
