CGC VF-: 7.5
It is widely believed that Showcase 4 didn't just introduce the modern version of the Flash -- the issue may have saved the entire comic book industry from impending collapse. Before Julius Schwartz re-designed the Fastest Man Alive, superheroes were an afterthought in post-war comic books. Now, 58 years later, any comics not concerning superheroes are considered as something of an afterthought. This particular book was important and resonated on many levels.The Flash is now enjoying renewed popularity with a weekly television show on the CW network, bringing forth another character from print to film and increasing demand on his first appearance. What price can you put on this book? A hero book which is hero unto itself, acting as the savior for an entire wing of international pop culture. Who knows what may have become of comics if it were not for this special piece of inspiration. This affordable copy can now belong to a collector who has been longing to own this classic of the Silver Age. The central image is vibrant, the colors strong, and the historical importance unparalleled. Hurry up and take a chance before it speeds away.

One of the hottest Silver Age keys in the market right now. The last copy of Showcase 4 CGC 7.5 sold in August 2017 for $107,250.

Overstreet Guide 2017 VF- (7.5) value = $46,500.
