Grade:
CGC NM/M: 9.8
When it comes to the Flash, there are certain covers from the Infantino years that every fan of the title knows like the backs of their hands. The "Heaviest Man Alive" is one of those iconic designs that has become part of Sultan of Speed lore, and as a result, demands impressive prices on the marketplace. Much has been made about Carmine Infantino's penchant for depicting motion, a skill that made him a perfect fit for the Flash, and he took advantage of this talent over and over again to the pleasure of the rabid fanbase this title built up during the Silver Age. DC issues from this era are notably hard to find in high grades, so even mid and lower-grade copies draw attention when they arrive on the market.

This NM/M copy is one of two that sit firmly atop the census. There are no visible flaws on this cover, the colors are intense, the spine is rock solid, the corners are sharp as a razor, and the registration is spot on. There is not much more to be said about this breathtaking copy except, bid early and bid often, another copy of this quality will not be showing up any time soon.
