Schomburg Torch/Sub-Mariner cover; RARE!!! 132 pages.
Highest Graded
CGC FN+: 6.5
There is something very special about combining the words Marvel Mystery with the word Annual. Printed in NY and distributed in NYC and Canada, little is known about the 2 annuals Timely produced causing decades of speculation. Collectors often daydream about the possibilities of a Sub-Mariner Annual, a Human Torch Annual or even an All-Winners Annual. But alas, they were not meant to be. Shares the same Alex Schomburg cover as Marvel Mystery 33.

This is the first copy of this extremely rare book that we have ever offered. Period. Not only incredibly rare, but in unusually nice shape for a book of this type from the period, still showing strong reds and a sturdy spine, and unrestored, as well. In fact, this is the highest graded copy known to exist. Extremely scarce, in terrific shape, untouched by restoration, plus containing a variant interior, this is unheard of. For serious Timely collectors, this is the caviar book of the auction.

Overstreet Guide 2012 FN+ (6.5) value = $26,250
