The holy grail of comics!!!!! This is one of the best known certified
examples for page quality. Approximately 75-100 copies of this first
appearance of Superman by Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegal are still
believed to exist.
It is impossible to find these early Actions in high grade so it is no
suprise this is the second highest graded copy. As a bonus it has two
ads for More Fun #52 (first Spectre) which, of course, you can't see
because the book is CGC'd. Sorry!.
Just the second issue to have Sandman on the cover. Bob Kane, the
creator of Batman, helped with the interior artwork. This issue has
been designated a Gerber "7", and it really is. It may take you years
to find another one even in this grade!! Just three issues grade
higher, and only
one of them is above 7.0 (of course, it is the Mile High copy, which is
in a class all by itself)!

If you want the perfect book for investment and enjoyment, then look no
further than this fifth ranked most valuable Golden Age book by the
Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide!! Listed as "rare" by Overstreet and

Lantern by Sheldon Moldoff (c/a) and Martin Nodell.
