Behold the 9.0 NM CGC-graded copy of "Action Comics No.1," which is the first appearance of the Man of Steel.
It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's the first appearance of Superman!
There is a currently a CGC-graded Near Mint (9.0) copy of Action Comics No. 1 (1938), which is the first appearance of Superman, currently up for auction on ebay. There is still just over a week left on the listing and the current bid is already $1,750,200.
Action Comics No. 1 was published in June 1938 and only cost 10 cents. There are reportedly only 50 to 100 original copies, in any condition, still in existence today.
AC No. 1 is the only comic book to ever sell for over $2 million for a single copy. The owner of this particular copy is Darren Adams and he is the owner of Pristine Comics.
"This is THE comic book that started it all," Adams explains. "This comic features not only the first appearance of Superman, Clark Kent and Lois Lane, but this comic began the entire superhero genre that has followed during the 76 years since. It is referred to as the Holy Grail of comics and this is the finest graded copy to exist with perfect white pages. This is .... the Mona Lisa of comics and stands alone as the most valuable comic book ever printed."
"This particular copy is the nicest that has ever been graded, with an ASTONISHING grade of CGC 9.0," said Adams. "To date, no copies have been graded higher and only one other copy has received the same grade. It is fair to say though that this copy blows the other 9.0 out of the water."
"Compared to the other 9.0 that sold for $2.1million several years ago it has significant superior eye appeal, extremely vibrant colors and PERFECT WHITE PAGES," Adams continued. This means after 76 years the aging process has yet to begin."
"Truly this book is a museum piece," Adams insists. "It is one of only two copies of this comic in ANY condition to ever be graded with the distinction of having White pages, the other being a CGC 2.5 !"
