What A Truly Amazing Item!

The original Check That Financed The First Printing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Plus a hand signed NM++ issue #1 (Original 1st printing) from Kevin Eastman, and a Reproduction of the First ever Drawing of the Turtles (late 1983).
I carefully opened the mat and graded the book. I have sold two 9.6 examples in the past that were graded by CGC and this one is clearly at least a 9.6, with a chance at a 9.8


WITHOUT THIS CHECK, THE TURTLES AND THEIR BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN CREATED - THINK ABOUT THAT!


The check that made pop culture history was written by Kevin Eastman's uncle Quentin to provide Eastman and Peter Laird the missing financing for the 3,000-copy first printing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Mirage Studios 1984).

Presented here is the Actual  original check, handsomely matted with a copy of the back side (with Kevin Eastman's endorsement), a reproduction of the very first Turtles drawing, and an authentic 1st printing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (in NM+)#1 signed by Kevin Eastman.
This beautiful display was originally owned by Kevin Eastman and was matted and framed long ago. The comic book alone is worth about $7,000
as it is a solid 9.6.

Recently, the check that launched the 1st Superman story sold for an astounding $160,000 at auction, showing the value of such pop culture collectibles. With the worldwide popularity of the Turtles and the upcoming movie, this display is an amazing opportunity for the advanced collector or savvy investor.
