CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS #3
Publisher:
Timely
Grade:
CGC VG/F: 5.0
Published in May 1941, this early comic book and third appearance of the popular Marvel character, Captain America, is of particular significance because it contains the very first published work by Stan Lee. "Stan the Man" made his foray into the comics world by scripting a text story here entitled "Captain America Foils the Traitor's Revenge." In addition to the first cover appearance of Cap's arch villain the Red Skull, the story unfolds with a twist, including the first time Captain America uses his signature "shield-toss," in which he employs his shield as a weapon, rather than just as a defensive object.

Golden Age comics have been highly sought after by collectors, for what seems like decades now, but as we move deeper into the 21st century, they are becoming much harder to find as collectors hoard their prize possessions as values never seem to plateau. Timely Comics in particular, including Marvel Mystery, Human Torch, Sub-Mariner, and of course, Captain America Comics, are in increasingly high demand and command two to three times, if not more, than Overstreet Price Guide values.

Overstreet Guide 2018 VG/F (5.0) value = $6,250.
