One of the greatest Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin and first appearance of the most popular patriotic hero: Captain America! The issue also features the 1st appearance of Cap's tragic sidekick Bucky, as well as his nemesis, The Red Skull! Thrill to the adventures of America's greatest hero as told by the character's creators, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. The cover sports one of the greatest images of the Golden Age: Captain America socking Hitler in the jaw.

The premieres of the Captain America and Avengers movies have catapulted Captain America's popularity into the stratosphere. His star is on the rise. The demand for Captain America Comics 1 has grown exponentially over the last two years. Records are constantly being set and broken. With two more Cap and Avengers movies scheduled the demand will grow and grow.

In 2008, ComicConnect's Vincent Zurzolo, helped out Batman movie producer Michael Uslan by loaning a number of key issues to the 2008 Metropolitan Museum exhibit, Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy. This copy of Captain America 1, signed by Cap creator Joe Simon, was on display at that show, making it not only an historic debut, but an historic copy, as one of the first comic books ever displayed at a major American museum exhibition. Owning a copy of this important key is priceless enough, this copy is triply historic, and is certain to be a magnet for all Cap fanatics and Timely collectors. Comes with COA.
