SUPERMAN (1939-86; 2006-11) #1
CGC PR: 0.5
The first name in superheroes has always been Superman. "Look, up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Superman!" Those words identified the character for decades and the big red "S" on his chest is one of the most-easily-recognized symbols in the world. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman has enjoyed decades of popularity and has been featured in cartoons, serials, movies, television shows, and pretty much anything else you can put a price tag on. As one of the top Golden Age keys, this issue features the origin of DC's most well known and best-loved hero! Often overlooked is the historical importance of this book, which showcases three of the most important supporting characters in the Superman pantheon: Ma and Pa Kent, as well as Lois Lane.

Are you looking for a conversation piece? A great affordable copy that presents well and grants instant bragging rights? This is the book for you -- the logo and Superman images are from this very copy but were removed long ago and kept with this handsome coverless key. These pieces have been painstakingly affixed to a color copy of this classic cover, creating a remarkable and delightful collectors' treasure that is a terrific showpiece in its own right! As Golden Age keys have been skyrocketing in value, savvy collectors on a budget have been snapping up unusual lower-grade copies such as this, and this bright and attractive example is guaranteed to delight!

Pictures of the inside front and back cover. One-sided xerox cover highlights the sections that are original. Incredibly detailed work was done to integrate the original logo and Superman images.

Overstreet Guide 2017 GD (2.0) value = $80,000.
