CGC-Graded Comics Expected to be Among Top Attractions in Heritage Auctions’ Comics Auction

Leading the way is Action Comics #1 (DC, 1938) CGC Conserved FN- 5.5 Cream to off-white pages (estimate: $800,000+), the stature of which continues to grow, year after year. Simply put, it is the most valuable comic book ever published. Overstreet's listed value increased from 2019 to 2020 by an amount that exceeded the total value of all but the top eight books on its Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, and it invariably fetches far more than Guide prices. Heritage Auctions last sold a Universal copy three years ago, and the current offering is the most attractive copy Heritage has offered in nearly five years.

The origin and first appearance of Superman launched the Golden Age of Comics. Joe Shuster provided the cover and story art of the Superman story, while Fred Guardineer and Bernard Baily also contributed interior art. CGC notes this as “From the Collection of Jon Berk.”
