Archie Comics #1 CGC 4.0 OW/W 1st Ms. Andrews 1st Teen Comic Bob Montana MLJ
Archie Andrews is one of the longest running and most important comic book characters of all-time. Unlike the Superhero genre, where there is debate and competition, there is no other teen humor character even close in significance. Archie Comics #1 is an important and highly desirable comic that features several Key firsts. Its the first appearance of Ms. Andrews (Archie's mother), the first time the Archie-Veronica relationship is explained in detail, and this book is the first comic entirely devoted to teens. This stunning copy was graded 4.0 because of the relatively small piece out of the back cover. One look at the front cover scan will tell you thius is no ordinary 4.0 copy. This example can easily pass for a 6.0 to 7.0 copy and even though it received OW/WHITE pages, looking at the book before submission made us think it should have received WHITE pages as the interior, both covers and pages were bone white. Archie Comics #1 is finally getting its due over the past couple of years and we think there is plenty of room to appreciate based on importnace and scarcity. Consider this, there are ONLY 27 copies of Archie #1 that have been certified as compared with 174 copies of Batman #1 and 96 copies of Superman #1. There are only 6 certified copies that have graded higher and probably no more than 3 of them can eqaul the cover appeal. The original owner title adds to the appeal considering this copy was just pulled from a box where it sat for the better part of 6 decades less than a week ago. We are certain this important and scarce piece of Americana will find a great home. Serial number 1097565014 Scroll Down For More Pictures

WHAT IS CGC?
CGC is the abbreviation for Certified Guaranty Company, an independent grading firm that evaluates comics, authenticate the comic book as original and genuine, checks for any restoration work done to the comics, gives each comic a condition grade based on strict criteria and a 10 point scale, and then encapsulates the comic book in a hard plastic, tamper proof holder with an acid free inner with grade and paper quality prominently displayed on the holder. As the most respected grading service in the comic industry, CGC establishes a grade that both seller and buyer can agree on and trust.
