Dear Fellow Collector,

More than 1,700 lots from 177 different consignors are offered in these pages, making this auction (our 42nd Signature sale) the biggest one weve had in years! This event will cap a week of auctions at the Fletcher-Sinclair mansion in New York. We do this so we can cross-promote the items to our bidder-members in these other collectibles categories. One of the highestdollar lots in our last Comic sale sold to a gent who hadnt previously bought a comic item, and were proud to say thats a regular occurrence. By the same token, exquisite selections of fine jewelry, luxury handbags, timepieces, photography, and illustration art are available for you to browse, whether in person in New York or online at HA.com. Were expecting a record turnout of floor bidders at our Comic sale. But if you cant make it to the event, remember that you can still bid by phone, Internet, Heritage Live, mail, or fax, or even from your smartphone! I hope you enjoy browsing the pages that follow.

Best wishes,

Barry Sandoval Director of Operations, Comics

91251 House of Mystery #174 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1968) CGC NM+ 9.6 Offwhite pages. A key issue thats still a sleeper just like House of Secrets #81 (offered in this same auction), and for the same reason: its the first issue of the titles return to the horror/mystery format that makes it so collectible in the first place. The previous issue had the wacky Dial H for Hero, for goodness sake! Also, #174 probably has the best-remembered cover of the run, its by Joe Orlando and George Roussos. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $200. CGC census 4/11: 7 in 9.6, none higher.

91252 House of Mystery #175 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1968) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. The first appearance of Cain, this series master of ceremonies, came in this issue, the second issue of the new horror run. Its said that none other than Bill Gaines had advised the folks at DC that his bestselling covers were the ones that featured boys in danger, and Neal Adams took the advice here with a dynamite cover. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $130. CGC census 4/11: 2 in 9.4, 1 higher. 91253 House of Mystery #179 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1969) CGC NM+ 9.6 Offwhite to white pages.

91256 Justice League of America #50 Savannah pedigree (DC, 1966) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Both Robin the Boy Wonder and the villainous Lord of Time make appearances.

91257 My Love #1 Savannah pedigree (Marvel, 1969) CGC NM 9.4 Cream to offwhite pages.

91280 Amazing Fantasy #15 (Marvel, 1962) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. It long ago passed Showcase #4 and Fantastic Four #1 as the most sought-after Silver Age comic book, and despite its relative youth, it ranks just outside the top ten most valuable Golden Age comics.

This one try-out issue resulted in Spidey getting his own title seven months later. The issue also occasioned the first appearances of Uncle Ben and Aunt May. Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko collaborated on the famous cover, with Ditko providing the interior art for the Spider-Man story and backup features. Overstreet 2010 FN 6.0 value = $12,000; VF 8.0 value = $36,000. CGC census 4/11: 37 in 7.0, 57 higher.

This was the first 100-page Super-Spectacular, period, i.e. its the first issue of the series and also pre-dates the SuperSpectaculars that were integrated into regular DC series a couple of years later. As to why the first issue was #4, even DC insider E. Nelson Bridwell cited reasons I cant go into because I dont quite understand them myself. We had never seen a true high-grade copy of this issue before, for reasons that are fairly obvious: thick square bounds are hard to find in 9.6 in any case, plus this has a black cover, front and back. And of course, the striking Bernie Wrightson cover would make this a desirable book even without all of the above. Also, its surprising how seldom we find this issue in collections, in any grade.

91327 Gobbledygook #1 With Eastman and Laird Sketches and Letter of Authenticity (Mirage Studios, 1984) Condition: VF/NM. The first time the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ever appeared in print was on the back cover of this rare issue! And while the Overstreet value is relatively modest, the fact that the only other copy weve ever offered sold for more than ten times Guide reflects the desirability of the item. Its probably fair to call this the most valuable 1980s comic. Reportedly just 50 copies of Gobbledygook #1 were made, and all were produced on a photocopier, making this item a challenge to authenticate luckily this copy is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Kevin Eastman. While CGC does not certify Gobbledygook, our three in-house graders who examined this copy graded it VF+, NM-, and NM- respectively. This is the first comic published by Eastman and Peter Lairds Mirage Studios. Later that spring, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 was released, in a meager first printing of 3,000 copies that still dwarfs that of Gobbledygook. Fugitoid (a mans mind trapped in a robots body) is the cover character and the star of two stories inside. A Champ story and pinups by Laird round out the content. On the inside front cover Eastman and Laird briefly introduce themselves and note, Together we have put together some of our newest projects for you to check out. The Turtles characters born in this independent comic became a major moneymaker, representing by far the biggest success to come out of independent comics and serving as an inspiration to creators and small publishers to this day. As a licensing/merchandising success the characters had no parallel. As an added bonus, this copy has sketches of two Turtles on the inside front cover, one each by Eastman and Laird. Overstreet 2010 VF/NM 9.0 value = $807; NM- 9.2 value = $1,200.

91328 Gobbledygook #2 With Eastman and Laird Sketches and Letter of Authenticity (Mirage Studios, 1984) Condition: NM-. Published at the same time as issue #1, this one is no easier to find! Overstreet ranks #2 as the fourth most-valuable Copper Age comic, and while thats an honor in itself, its safe to say the stated Guide value is far too low, since the only other copy Heritage has ever sold fetched nine times Guide at auction. While CGC does not certify Gobbledygook, our three in-house graders who examined this copy of #2 graded it NM, NM-, and NM- respectively. The authenticity is vouched for by none other than Kevin Eastman himself, in a letter of authenticity thats included with the lot. This issue has the same Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ad on the back cover as does #1. Inside, the comic continues Kevin Eastman and Peter Lairds Fugitoid story from #1 and includes a few other features including (according to Lairds introduction) the duos first collaboration from 1981. This copy also boasts Turtles sketches by Eastman and Laird on the inside front cover. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $750.

91338 Iron Man #1 (Marvel, 1968) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Iron Man finally received his own title some five years after his first appearance, part of the second wave of Marvel titles that launched at the end of the Silver Age. It began with a story continued from the Iron Man and Sub-Mariner one-shot of the previous month. Gene Colan presented a superb cover here, and he and Johnny Craig teamed up for some stellar interior art as well. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $800. CGC census 4/11: 52 in 9.6, 23 higher.

91340 Journey Into Mystery #89 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VF+ 8.5 Offwhite to white pages. Behold: the origin of the Mighty Thor, Asgards favorite son, retold in this issue which includes art by Marvels favorite sons Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko. The cover blurb calls Thor the most colorful super-hero of all, and the luminous cover gloss on this handsome copy makes that claim absolutely true. Overstreet 2010 VF 8.0 value = $510; VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,005. CGC census 4/11: 10 in 8.5, 15 higher.

91344 Richie Rich #1 File Copy (Harvey, 1960) CGC NM+ 9.6 Cream to off-white pages. One of the most desirable copies of any Harvey comic in existence. This issue really started the whole Richie Rich phenomenon while the Poor Little Rich Boy had been a backup feature in every issue of Little Dot, and had two Harvey Hits tryout issues devoted to him, this series proved that he could carry his own book, and of course it wasnt too long before he was starring in many titles simultaneously, becoming one of the best-known characters in comics. Warren Kremer provided the visuals for this early outing (with Richie being waited on by Hawkins, this was before Cadbury took over as butler!). As with all Harveys, finding this in high grade is a tall order, and even a Fine copy would be a four-figure book. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $6,000. CGC census 4/11: 2 in 9.6, none higher.

91349 The Silver Surfer #4 (Marvel, 1969) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Most John Buscema fans would rank this cover among their all-time favorites; it was certainly one the artist was often asked to re-create in later years. Adding to the value is the fact that this issue experienced lower distribution than others, according to Overstreet. Overstreet 2010 NM9.2 value = $950. CGC census 4/11: 76 in 9.4, 42 higher.

91345 Richie Rich #2 File Copy (Harvey, 1961) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. Since we sold this same copy back in 2006 weve been waiting for another 9.6 to come along, and were still waiting. The concept that there was a time when Richie only starred in one title is quite a mind-boggler; it wouldnt be long before the floodgates were opened for many, many others. Warren Kremers charming cover shows that the winning formula was in place right from the start. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $1,750. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 9.6, none higher.

91347 Showcase #4 The Flash (DC, 1956) CGC VG 4.0 Off-white pages. Generally considered the issue and event that started the Silver Age of Comics by reintroducing the Fastest Man Alive to a new generation of comic readers. The Flash was updated with a snappy new costume and origin, with Carmine Infantino and Joe Kubert providing the cover and interior art for this issue. Currently, this book ranks fourth in Overstreets list of the 20 most valuable Silver Age comics. Overstreet 2010 VG 4.0 value = $3,200. CGC census 4/11: 16 in 4.0, 67 higher. 91351 Stumbo Tinytown #1 File Copy (Harvey, 1963) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. Giant-size issue. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $290. CGC census 4/11: 2 in 9.6, none higher.

91350 The Silver Surfer #10 (Marvel, 1969) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. John Buscema cover and art. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $185. CGC census 4/11: 13 in 9.6, 4 higher.

91346 Richie Rich #11 File Copy (Harvey, 1962) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. A stunning file copy from early in the run. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $360. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 9.4, 1 higher.

91348 The Silver Surfer #1 Bowling Green pedigree (Marvel, 1968) CGC NM 9.4 Offwhite pages. This premiere issue expands upon the Surfers origin, and back-up stories featuring the Watcher kick off with his origin tale. Great art by John Buscema, Joe Sinnott, Gene Colan, and Syd Shores. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $1,150. CGC census 4/11: 68 in 9.4, 27 higher. From the Jeffrey Edell Collection.

91352 Superman #209 Pacific Coast pedigree (DC, 1968) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. A halfpurple, half-black cover is not something conducive to being preserved in high grade. This one is tied with the Oakland copy atop the CGC census 4/11: 2 in 9.8, none higher.

91357 Tales of Suspense #56 (Marvel, 1964) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. The first appearance of the Unicorn is the highlight of this attractive comic. It sports a cool Jack Kirby cover, an Iron Man story with Don Heck art, and a Tales of the Watcher backup feature with Larry Lieber art. This issue includes cameo appearances by the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. Nuff said, true believers? Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $400. CGC census 4/11: 15 in 9.4, 5 higher.

91355 Tales of Suspense #39 (Marvel, 1963) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white pages. One of Marvels key origin issues from the early 1960s, ToS #39 has seen a significant jump in collector demand over the past couple of years, likely the result of the very popular Iron Man movies. Jack Kirbys cover is one of a slew he did that have become Silver Age milestones. Kirby also did the layouts for the Iron Man story, while familiar names Steve Ditko, Gene Colan, and Don Heck also contributed interior art for the issue that gave us the characters origin and first appearance. Overstreet 2010 VG 4.0 value = $1,500; FN 6.0 value = $2,250. CGC census 4/11: 58 in 5.0, 272 higher.

91359 Tales to Astonish #27 (Marvel, 1962) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Cream to off-white pages. This key issue is one of the top 15 Silver Age books, and many call it the toughest Silver Age Marvel key to find in high grade. Its just one of just three Marvel superhero books of the age to have a tencent cover price (the others being the first two issues of Fantastic Four). This was the first appearance of Henry Pym, who would appear in costume as Ant-Man eight issues later. Jack Kirby cover, with interior art by Kirby and Steve Ditko. Overstreet 2010 FN 6.0 value = $1,440; VF 8.0 value = $4,320. CGC census 4/11: 12 in 7.0, 34 higher.

91360 Tenpenny Funnies #1-8 Group (Peter Laird, 1977-78). Before Peter Laird teamed up with Kevin Eastman to create the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even years before the two turned out the rare Gobbledygook, Laird was the publisher of this mincomic series. I think I did about five issues of Tenpenny Funnies, Laird wrote on his blog last year. Heres your chance to bid on eight issues, which we believe to be the complete run. Laird wrote, Back in the late 1970s, while I still had my tiny used book and comic store in Northampton [Massachusetts], I tried my hand at self-publishing minicomics. There was a copy shop right across the street, so it was convenient to bop over there and get the 8.5 by 11 inch copies made. They had a cutter which could slice big piles of these copies in half, so it made it easier for me to put together the 5.5 by 4.25 inch comics... Im not going to say I sold very many of them in fact, I probably never recouped the printing costs.) These are eight-page minicomics (except for #2 and #8 which have 16 pages each), with art by Laird and other artists. Conan and H.P. Lovecraft were obviously big influences on Laird, and much of the content has a barbarian theme. The seller of these copies was a customer at the Northampton store back then, and has preserved these mini-comics well #1 is in Fine/Very Fine condition, #8 is Very Fine, and the others average VF/NM. These are a must for the Eastman and Laird fan who has everything!

91361 Thor #151 (Marvel, 1968) CGC NM/ MT 9.8 White pages. First appearance of Ulik. Inhumans backup story. Jack Kirby cover and art. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $100. CGC census 4/11: 4 in 9.8, none higher. From the George Papadimatos Collection.

91365 Worlds Finest Comics #94 (DC, 1958) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. The origin of the unbeatable Superman/Batman team is retold, with Tomahawk and Green Arrow appearing in backup stories. The cover is by Curt Swan and the interior art is by Dick Sprang, Fred Ray, and George Papp. This is the highest-graded copy certified by CGC to date. Overstreet 2010 VF/NM 9.0 value = $792; NM- 9.2 value = $1,175. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 9.0, none higher.

91362 Uncle Scrooge #21 (Dell, 1958) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. The Beagle Boys, Donald Duck, and Huey, Dewey, and Louie all make appearances.

The origin and first appearance of the X-Men (Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman, and Marvel Girl) is one of the top ten most valuable Silver Age books, according to Overstreet.

91367 X-Men #2 (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM- 9.2 Off-white pages. The early 60s Marvel keys continue to be in great demand, and the values are reflected in Overstreet. The second issue of the titles has the first appearance of the Vanisher, and Jack Kirby cover and interior art. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $4,000. CGC census 4/11: 12 in 9.2, 14 higher. From the Michael Scheer Collection.

91369 X-Men #6 (Marvel, 1964) CGC NM- 9.2 Cream to off-white pages. The Sub-Mariner and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants appear. Jack Kirby provided the cover and art, including a Cyclops pin-up. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $1,275. CGC census 4/11: 16 in 9.2, 23 higher.

91371 X-Men #101 (Marvel, 1976) CGC NM/ MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. This issue marks the origin and first appearance of of Jean Grey as Phoenix, a plotline that would have a lasting impact on the X-titles. Black Tom Cassidy and Juggernaut also make appearances. Cover and art by Dave Cockrum. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $235. CGC census 4/11: 29 in 9.8, none higher.

91368 X-Men #3 (Marvel, 1964) CGC VF/ NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. The first appearance of the Blob. Jack Kirby cover and art. Overstreet 2010 VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,541; NM9.2 value = $2,300. CGC census 4/11: 31 in 9.0, 31 higher. From the Michael Scheer Collection.

91370 X-Men #10 (Marvel, 1965) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. While officially the first Silver Age appearance of Ka-Zar, it could be argued that this is a different character than either the old Marvel Comics #1 jungle-dweller or the short-lived pulp hero. Zabu the Sabertooth makes his first appearance, as does the Savage Land, which would figure into many X-Men stories over the years. The cover is another Silver Age gem by Jack Kirby. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $1,000. CGC census 4/11: 11 in 9.4, 11 higher.

Session One, Auction #7033 | Thursday, May 5, 2011 | 11:00AM ET 27

91372 Action Comics #1-24 Bound Volumes (DC, 1938-40). Surely the most desirable bound comic volumes in existence, these stand out not only because of which comics are inside but because of their condition! Even to the seasoned collector, the condition of these comics will come as a major surprise. Here, all of the earliest and most valuable issues (#1-12) have consistent page quality right to the edges! Thats unusual for bound volumes most volumes weve seen over the years tend to have a bit of page darkening at the edges, since they are obviously more exposed than the page interiors which are tightly pressed together. As for the comic covers here, theyre superbly preserved, with a fresh look matching or exceeding the best individual copies of these issues we had seen to date. While collectors of bound volumes are used to attractive covers, the fact that the inside front and back covers of the most valuable issues also lack any tanning is unexpected, and a very pleasant surprise. To be clear: the earliest issues in these volumes are in the nicest condition! That could hardly be more significant, since the earliest comic in the group is Action Comics #1, nothing less than the most desirable comic in the hobby. The first appearance of Superman, this issue is the crown jewel of anyones comic collection. Combine it with sterling copies of all of the tough early issues in one book, and youve got the closest comic equivalent to a Gutenberg bible! Consider the challenge of trying to assemble this run by pursuing individual copies with comparable eye appeal. A Very Fine #1 recently sold for one million dollars, and a Very Fine #7 sold for more than $140,000 not long ago. Even if the expense were no factor; issues such as 2, 5, 8, 10, and 13 are almost never offered for sale, and holding out for bright copies of these with excellent eye appeal could be dismissed as simply unrealistic. Not only is Action Comics #1 the most famous comic book of all as well as the most valuable, issue #7 is surely one of the top 10-15 comics in the hobby. Those two are joined by #2-6, 10, and 13 in Overstreets Top 100 Golden Age Books list; issues #8 and 9 barely missed that list and boast Top of Guide values of $18,000. We have examined these comics closely and can attest that there is no restoration other than what is noted below, which only affects the relatively unimportant #21, 23, and 24. The consignor of this item acquired it in a Heritage auction to accomplish his goal of completing a run of Action Comics #1-200. That challenge having been mastered, he has consigned the entire run to Heritage, and youll find his other early issues in this same auction. Even those lucky souls who already own an Action #1 will likely be keen to acquire this lot, as it allows you to enjoy this key book in a completely different way than looking at it in a CGC slab, a Fortress holder, etc. The inside cover of #1 is very nice and bright, which as mentioned above is hardly a given, even for bound volumes, since interior page deterioration tends to tan these insides. Most of the comics in these volumes have inside covers that are similarly nice. There is a 3 penciled on the cover of #1 and a very small (5 mm) H in pen at upper left that might be hard to see on our photo because its close to the spine. Other than a couple of finger dents to the surface, the cover is perfect, and we cant emphasize enough that the off-white page quality is consistent right to the edge! A few notes on #2-24: The cover of #2 has white, light blue, and light green cover areas that tend to get smudged or discolored easily, so this clean copy is a sight to behold! #3 is a book we had only offered three copies of to date, and we had never seen the yellow cover block this bright and clean. The H seen on the cover of #1 also appears here and on #4 and #10. This copy does have a notable defect: the coupon on the inside back cover has been neatly scissored out. The early issues (including #1) all had contests, this one being a Cartoon Contest with twenty-five $1 prizes being awarded. All entries must be in by Friday, August 5, 1938. #4 has a 4 -inch tear on the back cover. Of course, issues #2-6 did not show Superman (or even mention his name) on the cover, and its amusing to see that the contest in #4 was to ...pick out the five features you like best in the magazine... Obviously at the time Superman was not considered the unquestioned star by his publisher. #5 We had only ever offered three unrestored copies of this issue. The sand on the cover is clean and unsmudged, try finding another copy you can say that about! The beautiful white inside covers are striking on all of the issues from #1-6.

#6 Another book weve only offered two unrestored copies of before. #7 The second Superman cover appearance and one of the hottest comics in the hobby, trading hands far above the Overstreet value when one is for sale. We had only seen four unrestored copies to date, and thats counting a coverless book. We hadnt ever seen the street look this white before and the yellow building looks bright and amazing. #8 Is an issue Heritage has only offered twice ever! And CGC has certified just seven unrestored copies. A super-clean front cover. #10, the third Superman cover, could well be harder to find than #7. Heritage has only offered one unrestored copy graded better than Poor. This is a fresh-looking copy, with no dust shadow on the block of white. #12, which has Superman appearing in a vignette on the cover, has a lower left corner that has been folded in, obviously taking place before the trimming that was part of the binding process. #13 is an issue weve only ever seen coverless copies of. The first issue of the second volume, this is also the first issue of the group to have a tan inside cover (#14-17 have no inside cover tanning). Theres a 4 on the cover just like the 3 on #1. Its an amazing sight to open this one up to the centerspread and see a double-page announcing Superman #1! #15 has a small water spot at the extreme top corner, obviously something that happened prior to binding as the surrounding books were not affected. #17 has an interesting full-page ad for New York Worlds Fair Comics 1939 explaining the price reduction from 25 to 15. #18 has a tiny chip out of the outside cover edge, theres a brown spot on the cover and one on the first page. #19 and up have cream page edges. Issue #19 has 15- penciled on the cover. Neat full-page ads in this issue for Flash Comics #1 and Superman #3! #20 has a water spot at the outside edge of the cover, and a taped spine. #21 has a water spot at top right. Theres a piece of tape on the inside front cover, sealing a tear at the edge, and tape along the entire spine. 10- is penciled on the back cover. #22 has a small, barely noticeable tear at bottom center, and theres a small tear at the spine of the back cover. The price 700 is penciled on the back cover. #23 has tape repair to two major tears, amateur piece replacement of a missing chunk, some amateur color touch, and tape along the entire spine. The price 10- is on the back cover. #24 has white tape on the spine and 300 written on the front cover. There are a couple of edge tears on the back cover, and the coupon on the inside front cover has been filled out in pencil. These comics have been trimmed (as is customary) and bound into two orange hardcover volumes. Its worth noting that as far as we can tell, the spines have not been trimmed. Some of the later comics were obviously acquired as back issues judging by the penciled prices as high as $15 that appear (only) on some later covers. Our best guess is that these were bound in the 1960s, since before the 1960s its unlikely that asking prices would have been that high, and since the 1970s brought more publicity for the values of vintage comics its unlikely that anyone would have bound an Action #1 that late. The condition of the last few (and least valuable) issues doesnt detract from our enjoyment of the much nicer early books! As is our custom for bound volumes, well note the VG guide value as a baseline: Overstreet 2010 VG 4.0 value for group = $231,758. Having the opportunity to turn the pages of Action Comics #1-24 consecutively while examining the books to write this description was a unique thrill, and were more than a bit envious that the winning bidder will be able to do so whenever he chooses.

91373 Action Comics #1 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VF 8.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. Demand for the few elite super-keys of the comic hobby goes up with each passing year, and attractively restored Action #1s are among these hot commodities. Most recently, the Court Copy (certified with moderate professional restoration like this copy, but graded three notches lower at Apparent 6.5) fetched $143,400. The eye appeal of this one means that serious bragging rights will be bestowed upon the winning bidder. The most important comic book ever published was Overstreets note about this issue some years ago, and no one has seriously disputed that claim in the ensuing years. This is the first appearance of Superman, and by universal consensus its the comic that started the Golden Age. Superman spawned many imitators, and the characters runaway success established DC as one of the top publishers, a status it has never lost. This first Superman story, written by Jerry Siegel and drawn by Joe Shuster, also briefly tells the origin of the character. CGC notes, Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cover cleaned, reinforced. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $80,000; VG 4.0 value = $160,000; FN 6.0 value = $240,000; VF 8.0 value = $600,000.

91374 Action Comics #1 Coverless Copy (DC, 1938) CGC No Grade A complete . copy, except for the cover of course. The first appearance of Superman is the most valuable comic book issue in our hobby. Unrestored copies that have covers are six-figure items in almost any grade, so this copy is an alternative for those without $100,000 to spend but who would still like the bragging rights carried by this ultra-key. If youre not familiar with CGCs NG designation, it simply authenticates the item as an Action #1 without assigning a grade. How to estimate the value of the item? While weve never sold a coverless copy of this book, we did auction a coverless Detective #27 which, while structurally sounder than the present lot, fetched about one-fourth of the then-current Overstreet GD price. CGC notes, Coverless. 1st wrap detached & completely split. Heavy damage to 1st wrap. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $80,000.

91376 Action Comics #4 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VF 8.0 Extensive (P) Off-white to white pages. The fourth appearance of Superman is one of Overstreets top 100 Golden Age books.

Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $1,879; VG 4.0 value = $3,758; FN 6.0 value = $5,637; VF 8.0 value = $13,905.

91377 Action Comics #5 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VG/FN 5.0 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages. Just the sixth different copy of this book weve ever sold. This early Superman appearance is one of Overstreets top 100 Golden Age books. Leo OMealia cover. CGC notes, Restoration includes: color touch, pieces added, tear seals, cleaned, reinforced. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $1,879; VG 4.0 value = $3,758.

91375 Action Comics #2 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent VG/FN 5.0 Extensive (P) Cream to off-white pages. The second appearance of Superman is one of the 20 most valuable comic issues in the hobby. Leo OMealia cover art. CGC notes, Restoration includes: color touch, tear seals, pieces added, cover cleaned, interior lightened, reinforced. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $5,100; VG 4.0 value = $10,200.

91378 Action Comics #6 (DC, 1938) CGC Apparent GD 2.0 Moderate (A) Slightly Brittle pages. This is just the fourth diffferent copy of #6 weve offered in any grade. This very early Superman adventure has the first appearance of Jimmy Olsen. Its a pretty important first appearance, considering that Supermans Pal later starred in his own comic that ran for twenty years!

By Max Donner Its nice to have choices, and you have many choices when you want to estimate the value of your collectibles. But in many cases, the choices are fundamentally different and it is a good idea to weigh their differences before you proceed. An appraisal always needs to be done for a specific purpose, says attorney Jessica Darraby, author of Art, Artifact & Architecture Law. estate and tax matters call for written appraisal reports of current market value conforming to the standards of the Uniform standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (UsPAP). this can also be used for section 1031 exchanges that let you buy more expensive artwork by using other artwork for partial payment. scheduled insurance seeks a value based on a different standard called replacement cost. this is generally close to the price you would pay at a major gallery. Liquidation value is close to the minimum price you would net if you had to dispose of the object quickly, sometimes referred to as net cash value. other common uses for an estimate of a collectibles value do not require a formal written estimate and can be approximated over the phone or via e-mail with object details and photographs. these include preparing a budget for purchases, deciding whether to lease or to buy artwork or setting a reserve price to sell at an auction. this is also a helpful guide if you are deciding how to fairly divide your collection among several heirs.

What is USPAP?
the Uniform standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (UsPAP) are the generally accepted standards for professional appraisal services in the United states. the UsPAP program does not mandate specific formulas for valuation. Instead, it provides guidelines for data collection and documentation to achieve consistency and quality control. It also requires specific details about the methods used to determine the valuation ranges and reports on relevant conditions and recent transactions in the entire market. As a result, appraisers following UsPAP standards can issue a certificate for their appraisal, which makes them responsible for the results. UsPAP contains standards for all types of appraisal services, including real estate and personal property. Visit the Appraisal Foundations Web site (www.appraisalfoundation.org) for additional information. Max Donner

Both the appraiser and the client need to do the same thing intelligent research, according to Richard Holgate, a consultant at Fine Art conservation Laboratories. Holgate often delves deep into historical archives to conduct a thorough study. When appraising a portrait attributed to sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792), he authenticated the signature and checked a copy of the artists diary to confirm the date and subject of the portrait. He advises that appraisal clients focus their research on the type of appraisal they need and finding a competent expert.

FINDING EXPERTS completing the appraisal process can take several months. Unlike a routine valuation such as a used car, which any qualified professional can complete with standardized information, specialized expertise is essential for art and collectibles. experts who have published catalogs and articles on an artist or style are the most sought after. A referral from a third party with frequent experience, such as an insurance broker or museum curator, can help focus your search. Museum experts are frequently sought after to authenticate collectibles

1770 Pillar Dollar

During spains rule over much of the new world, the use of its coinage was widespread. colonial mints in mexico, peru, colombia, guatemala and chile produced various coins, including silver reales. by the second half of the 18th century, the spanish milled dollar or pillar Dollar, minted from 1732 to 1773, was circulating throughout the world, even serving as standard currency in the united states. its usage was so widespread that some historians argue its pillars with scrolls running across them inspired the creation of the $ symbol. until recently, most if not all pillar Dollars were believed documented. but three years ago, a small group of pillar Dollars struck at the nuevo reino mint in colombia was found amid the ruins of bogotas nuestra seora del pilar church, which was founded in 1770 and destroyed during civil unrest in the early 1950s. since there are no records of 1770 nuevo reino pillars, it is likely that the pieces were produced specifically for the church and placed in its foundation, says cristiano bierrenbach, director of international sales at heritage. all 14 pillar Dollars, minted during the reign of king carlos iii, were acquired by the same person. the finest example from the batch realized $80,500 at heritages world & ancient coin signature auction in may 2009. the amazing thing about this pillar Dollar, bierrenbach says, is that we can actually trace it to the day and place of its minting. the entire history of this coin, and the reason for which it was created, is right on its face.

91509 Superman #1 (DC, 1939) CGC Apparent VF+ 8.5 Moderate (P) Cream to off-white pages.

91533 Wonder Woman #1 (DC, 1942) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. An instant hit in the early 40s, Wonder Woman quickly outgrew the confines of Sensation Comics after just a few months. This first issue of her eponymous title started a four-decade run for the character, still considered one of DCs Big Three 70 years after her debut, joining Superman and Batman as the only superheroes to be in continuous publication even through the superhero recession of the early 1950s. Wonder Womans early adventures still fascinate today, mainly because the Amazons creator, William Moulton Marston, wrote unorthodox stories that you wouldnt see in any other book, and H. G. Peters art also stood out from anything else on the stands. As you might expect from a #1 issue, the heroines origin story is retold and expanded upon here. CGC notes, Very minor amount of glue on spine of cover. Overstreet 2010 VF 8.0 value = $19,500. CGC census 4/11: 5 in 8.0, 3 higher.

Including MM probably kept Hefs shoestring operation afloat long enough for his focused efforts to provide the definitive Entertainment For Men magazine succeeded. Besides Marilyn, the first issue offered up contributions from noted cartoonist Virgil Partch, a Sherlock Holmes adventure from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and an article on legendary bandleaders Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey.

92001 Carl Barks Vacation Panel Painting Original Art (1972). The first painting in the large format (18 x 24) that Carl Barks ever did was also the only one of his larger paintings from the 1970s to be done in the vertical format. One of the most beloved Duck stories by Carl Barks was the long adventure in the 1950 Dell Giant Walt Disneys Vacation Parade #1, in which Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie camp out in the wilderness of Eagleclaw Mountains. The busy splash page of that classic tale was the inspiration for this oil on masonite painting (numbered CB OIL 37). Looks like rough going for Donald and the boys as their vacation trip encounters plenty of problems but nothing keeps a smile off Donalds face! The piece is featured on page 26 (color plate #30) of The Fine Art of Walt Disneys Donald Duck. Its beautifully framed to an overall 26 x 32, and is in Excellent condition. From the Kerby Confer Collection.

A money collector who could tell you where every coin and bill he owns originally came from that describes Scrooge McDuck, but also a number of numismatic enthusiasts we know! This stately portrait has quite an interesting story behind it. Carl Barks began the painting back in 1976, but did not finish it until a few years later. Upon completion, it was given to Carls loving wife, Gar, and was not included in The Fine Art of Donald Duck book featuring the Barks paintings. Lithographs were produced in 1983 but not released until 1997, and for reasons unknown the piece was retitled The Money Lender at that time. Its a sweet little portrait of our favorite Duck, painted in oils on masonite measuring approximately 8 x 10, and is nicely matted and framed to an overall 15 x 17. Its listed as 9 - 76 on the backside of the art, and is in Excellent condition. From the Kerby Confer Collection.

92007 Carl Barks Scrooges Old Castle Painting #21-72 Original Art (1972). After his introduction in Four Color #178s Christmas on Bear Mountain story, Uncle Scrooge stepped out for his first real starring role in his second appearance, Four Color #189s The Old Castles Secret. This monumental issue was graced with Barks very first comics cover, and that wonderful cover provided the inspiration for this painting, with one notable change: Uncle Scrooge has joined his nephews Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Artist Tony Strobl had included Scrooge on the cover when the story was reprinted in 1964 (in Best of Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge #1), and the fan who commissioned this painting paid an extra premium to have Barks do a similar version. Were certain that original fan was more than pleased with the results, as Barks perfectly captured that feather-raising moment at old Dismal Downs Castle when the mysterious phantom wields an ancient sword. This 36th Duck painting is the only version of this scene rendered on Barks preferred Masonite rather than canvas, and the result is a rich, detailed painting, which features an image area of approximately 16 x 20. This rare treasure still rests within the original frame hand-picked by Carl Barks, which measures 23.5 x 27.5, and is in Excellent condition. The Old Castles Secret remains one of the all-time favorites by many Disney fans; if its your favorite as well, this beautiful painting is essential for your collection!

Such important sequences from the famed Watchmen series do not come on the market often this is the first double-page group weve ever offered, and its a doozy the death of Hollis Mason, the original Night Owl from the superhero team the Minutemen. This highly charged event represents the jarring conclusion to the issue, and dramatically juxtaposes the two eras depicted in the series the birth of the superheroes and their grim contemporary 1980s existence. This is the cover scene, whereby Holliss trophy symbolizing the earlier period of costumed crime fighter glory is used as a blunt weapon to extinguish both his life and the earlier heroic spirit, thus bringing to a head many of the themes found in the much lauded Alan Moore storyline. Such an action-filled sequence, containing poetic shifts back and forth in time and rich with many subtexts, is a major grail for anyone looking for the perfect Watchmen example. These pages have a combined image area of 21 x 16, and they are in Excellent condition.

92134 Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight #3 Batman and Robin Iconic Splash Page 10 Original Art (DC, 1986). Frank Millers The Dark Knight Returns defined the best of 1980s comics, and has since been universally acknowledged as one of the most important and influential stories ever published. Miller is arguably the greatest superhero writer/artist to work during this period, and Dark Knight is his undisputed masterpiece: the four-issue series rejuvenated Batman as DCs most popular character and in the process helped revitalize the comics industry. This splash page is to our minds the single most memorable image from the entire book and the greatest image from the decade ever to come to market as well as one of the handful of most desirable pieces of original comic art from any era to come to market. A perfect standalone image of Batman and Robin (Carrie Kelley, the first female, full-time Robin) soaring high above Gotham City, an icon symbolizing the entire storyline this one has everything going for it. As demonstrated by the fact that weve only offered two Dark Knight panel pages previously and the fact that no splash page, much less a such an undeniably classic image, has never been offered at auction artwork from the famed series is much scarcer than anything else from the period. This gem has been locked away in a single collection since being purchased upon the series original publication and is the definition of fresh to market. And unlike many pages from the series, where differences between the original art and the published version are evident (as a result of Miller making changes on pasteovers), no changes were made to this artwork for publication, and the original contains no paste-ups or stats its pure art, just the way it appeared in print. Definitive is the only adequate description of this masterpiece, and as such, it was chosen to represent the entire time period in DCs recent 75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking book, serving as the chapter heading for The Dark Age: 1984-1998, and reproduced as a glorious color full-page image, leading off the chapter on page 556. In 2005, Time magazine ranked The Dark Knight Returns as one of the top ten graphic novels ever created. As Alan Moore wrote about the series: Beyond the imagery, themes, and essential romance of Dark Knight, Miller has also managed to shape the Batman into a true legend by introducing that element without which all true legends are incomplete and yet which for some reason hardly seems to exist in the world depicted in the average comic book, and that element is time... time has come to the Batman and the capstone that makes legends what they are has finally been fitted. In his engrossing story of a great mans final and greatest battle, Miller has managed to create something radiant which should hopefully illuminate things for the rest of the comic book field, casting a new light upon the problems which face all of us working within the industry and perhaps even guiding us towards some fresh solutions. In short, this is one of the most important pieces of original comic book art Heritage has ever had the pleasure to offer. This iconic masterpiece from Hunt the Dark Knight has an image area of 11.5 x 17.75, and aside from some very light paper aging in the image area and some passages of white-out, the art is in Excellent condition.

92136 Frank Miller and Klaus Janson Batman: The Dark Knight #3 Batman in Disguise page 2 Original Art (DC, 1986). Universally acknowledged as one of the most important story arcs in modern comics, no great comic book art collection could be considered complete without a masterwork from Frank Millers renowned Batman epic. The layout and storytelling in this page confirm Frank Millers place among the most stellar talents the field has offered, on a par with such giants as Will Eisner, Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Neal Adams, and Jim Steranko. Though officially page 2, this is actually the first story page of issue #3, Hunt the Dark Knight, as the first page in the book has just the story title. Here, the old woman in the shop is none other than Batman in disguise! Also, the crosscutting technique that Miller used to such great effect in the series is in evidence here as well, as the top four panels are from the perspective of, and narrated by, Superman. Note that there are some differences between the original art and the published version, as Miller reportedly took issue with some of the inking and made some changes on pasteovers that arent included with this lot. Differences include the face of the old woman in panel 5 and the face of the neo-Nazi in panel 7. The image area is 12 x 18, and aside from some tape residue stains in the four borders (outside the image area), the art is in Excellent condition. Frank Miller signed the page at the lower right.

92166 Charles Schulz Peanuts Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-2-86 (United Feature Syndicate, 1986).

92167 Charles Schulz Unprecedented, Unpublished Pre-Peanuts Daily Try-Out Comic Strip Original Art (c. 1949). Heres a peek at an incredibly cool, previously unpublished Charles Schulz try-out strip featuring characters who bear more than a passing resemblance to Charlie Brown and Snoopy! Schulzs early Lil Folks strips ran from 1947-early 1950 in the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and they always ran in a rectangular format, with separate panel cartoons contained within Lil Folks was never a daily format comic strip. In 1948, Schulz tried to get his feature syndicated, with no luck but those proposed mock-ups were individual panel cartoons such as those that made up Lil Folks. Schulz sold 17 gag cartoons to the Saturday Evening Post beginning in 1948, and the first Peanuts strip is dated October 2, 1950. From the first, the Peanuts dailies were always in a four-panel format. Stylistically, this three-panel example seems solidly from late 1949-50, towards the end of Lil Folks, and the beginning of Peanuts. Logically, this strip seems like a tryout strip for Peanuts when you look at the very first dailies, Snoopy and Charlie Brown are very similar to the unnamed characters in this laugh-riot. The image area of this remarkable daily measures approximately 22 x 6.5, and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 27 x 12. The art is in Excellent condition. From the Frieda Rich Collection.

The alberT l. morse ColleCTion of underground arT


Albert L. Morse (1938-2006) was a famed Bay Area attorney, working with many cartoonists in the Underground Comix scene during the 1970s. He was legal counsel both to the United Cartoon Workers of the World and on the infamous Air Pirates court case, and self-published Morses Funnies in the early 1970s, a sought-after publication featuring artwork by many of the Underground luminaries whom he had befriended, including Robert Crumb (who contributed the cover artwork). Because it includes photographs of the artists by Morse as well as self-portraits of the artists, the publication illustrated how the cartoonists saw themselves, how they saw Morse, and how Morse saw them. Morse remained active in Underground and comic circles during the decade, and in the mid 1970s published Funny Papers, a newspaper devoted to comics and cartoons. He was not only a well known figure in the Underground, he also amassed an impressive collection of vintage tattoo art and was an avid and respected photographer of that art form, writing the book The Tattooists (1975). We are honored to be presenting highlights from Albert L. Morses notable collection of Underground comic art, both in this special section and in Session Three of our auction, as well as in upcoming weekly comic auctions.

The complete Choices forty-page story, plus the painted cover (minus the lettering) makes up this massive Underground lot. The story of three prison inmates celebrating their release, Choices is one of the most admired and poignant slice of life comic stories ever created, and is widely considered an Underground Comix masterpiece. Artist/writer Guy Colwell was himself an inmate, sentenced to two years for draft resistance during the turbulent Vietnam era of the late 1960s. His experiences there formed the basis for his Inner City Romance series, and this first issue cemented his reputation as a socio-political artist. Although Colwell is Caucasian, his sympathetic depiction of African-Americans had many fans convinced he was Black. And speaking of fans, count Robert Crumb among the many who admire and collect his art. This is one of the all-time greats, and Heritage is very pleased to offer this complete historic work. The cover is in mixed media on bristol and measures 15 x 18, while the interior pages feature image areas of approximately 9.75 x 14.25. In Excellent condition.

92242 Robert Crumb Morses Funnies Cover Original Art (Albert Morse, 1974). Heav-ee!! Heres one of the most obscure covers R. Crumb has done, and its a great one at that. Crumbs lawyer Albert Morse was the man responsible for putting a halt on many unauthorized products that infringed on the famous Keep On Truckin drawing that wound up getting Crumb in such trouble with the IRS (who simply believed Crumb had to be raking in a fortune on all those posters, buttons, backpacks, etc.). When asked by Albert to provide a cover for a very limited edition comic, Crumb pulled out all the stops and created a great portrait of the larger-than-life lawyer. This is that cover, and it comes complete with a hand-cut rubylith overlay, designed to act as a second color. Of course, Albert simply printed everything in black and white, so this overlay, which gives the title logo a 3-D effect, has never been seen until now. The art is in ink and shading film on bristol, with an image area of approximately 10.5 x 13.5 (including crop marks); there is a tiny area of ink loss in the shadow under Alberts raised foot, otherwise the art is in Excellent condition.

In 1976, Robert withdrew the power of attorney he had granted his legal representative Morse, and for years there was speculation on what happened. In the note, Robert insists he holds no ill feelings towards Albert (other than his anger over Morses inability to get Crumbs IRS troubles behind him). I dont hate you or anything like that Crumb writes, Im just trying to get a grip on this (expletive deleted) mess that my financial situation is in, and so I just dont want anybody having any power to decide anything in my name any more.... Crumb goes on to express appreciation for all Morse had done for him, and mention his ongoing (at the time) battles with the IRS (who sued over back taxes for all the many Keep On Truckin items produced without Crumbs knowledge or consent). Theyre closing in... he adds at the end. Included with the note is the mailing envelope, written in Crumbs hand, postmarked March 30, 1976. Both items are in Very Good condition.

92272 Robert Crumb Julie Spool Original Art (c. 1960s). An excellent example of the old-time wooden spools R. Crumb collected and drew human faces on, this time a young, doe-eyed female named Julie. Crumbs spool art, displayed to the world in the Terry Zwigoff 1994 documentary film, is rarely seen in person, and thats a real shame, as these are very charming bits of Americana from the gifted hand of Crumb.

The image area is approximately 6.75 x 8. The paper has been professionally split from a reverse side, and is now a single-sided page; there are traces of tape residue in the top corners, but otherwise, the art looks to be in Excellent condition. While the page is unsigned, the art style is typical of R. Crumb art from the late 1960s.

92273 Robert Crumb Ray Spool Art Original Art (c. 1960s). Anyone who has seen Terry Zwigoffs award-winning 1995 documentary film, Crumb, will remember the opening scene in Roberts studio, showing dozens of hand-decorated old-time wooden spools, each featuring a human face. This charming example is called Ray, and it features a rather stern faced red-haired man wearing a pink and red check shirt. The spool stands approximately 2 tall and 1.5 at its widest points, and is in Excellent condition. Very cool!

Crumb teaches the groovy flower children about the dangers of hard drugs, in this powerful two-pager. Originally used in 1968s Zap #3, the strip was reprinted in a special anti-drug comic, Tuff Shit Comics, in 1972.

Crumbs popular know-it-all sage has an interesting story behind it. in 1969, Robert Crumb was drawing pages for his newest comic book, Mr. Natural #1, while spending time at the Renaissance Cafe in Berkeley, California, a popular eatery located near his printer. Working at the cafe was head cook Rusty Smith, who kept Crumb supplied with coffee, bagels, and other munchies as he produced pages for the book, working to meet his deadline. Come Christmas time, Robert offered Rusty a free sketch of his choice. I like that new character you were doing, so for the bearded, red-haired hippy chef, Crumb knocked out a great, iconic portrait of Mr. Natural, with the pithy quote, A beard doth not a Mister Natural make!

Stuck in the middle of nowhere with Big Baby, Mr. Natural catches wind of something unpleasant, in this nicely detailed page. Its hard to argue that the period between 1967 and 1971 saw R.

92289 Robert Crumb Snatch Sampler Cover/Bookplate Illustration Original Art (c. 1974). R. Crumbs comic art has stirred up more than its fair share of controversy over the years, usually for Crumbs unbridled, anything-goes approach to sexual themes, but also for his comic depiction of Black characters. His Angelfood McSpade character, with her exaggerated facial features and patois slang, has made activists and liberals angry for years, reaching the point where Crumb no longer will draw her today. Back in the 1970s, he was still headstrong about drawing outrageous material, and when he was approached by the publishers of the comics prozine Promethean Enterprises about doing art for their series of bookplates, he turned in a piece featuring a wildly stereotyped African native woman and her smaller po relashun male riding along on her leg, with a Crumb-like white Bwana male sitting on her ample behind, reading a copy of I Have Suffered Greatly. Funny stuff to be sure, but a million miles away from todays political correctness movement! In 1977, publisher Keith Green reused the image (with a couple of small art changes) as the cover to a paperback compilation of erotic comic stories originally printed in Snatch Comics and other titles. The art, done in graphite and india ink on paper, has an image of approximately 8 x 10; the page has some tape along the top edge, away from the image, but is otherwise in Excellent condition. Included with the art is a copy of Snatch Sampler, plus an enlarged color copy of the printed cover.

92302 Robert Crumb The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat Cover Original Art (Fantagraphics, 1993). Stories of R. Crumbs famous feline got collected into a nifty trade paperback edition in 1993. For this books cover, Crumb produced what might well be his last drawing of Fritz the Cat, the character originally inspired by a Crumb family household pet, and the subject of many early (including childhood) comic stories. When a newly married Crumb set off for Europe with a giant sketchbook in hand, he began filling the pages with wild adventures of Fritz, most of which were reprinted in The Life and Death of Fritz the Cat. Later, tiring of the character, he killed Fritz off in The Peoples Comics (1972), in a story called Fritz the Cat, Superstar. In this cover illustration, Crumb revisits this story, with Fritz hitting on a young female rabbit hitch-hiker.

92305 Foo #1 Original Printing (Animal Town Comics, 1958) Condition: FN+. The fabled Crumb Brothers fanzine comic book Foo (or FOO! as its listed on the cover) is a true Holy Grail of Crumb collectibles. Sure, there was a limited edition reprint set issued back in 1980 (and those are hard enough to find on their own), but the original editions? Fahgeddabouddit! Well, not quite, oh Underground fancier Heritage has dug up an original, first printing set of all three super scarce issues, from a longtime fan who bought them directly from Robert and Charles (by way of mail order) in 1958, and were offering the first issue in this lot. Weve given it a very strict, modern-day grade of FN+, but trust us, it looks much, much better than that as compared to most handmade zines of the 50s! And yes, its loaded with art from budding artist R. Crumb and his (at the time) even more talented brother, Charles. Dont pass this one by, as it may be a long, long time before another set (or individual issue) comes our way again! Not listed in Fogels or Overstreet.

92306 Foo #2 (Animal Town Comics, 1958) Condition: FN+. Heres the second issue of the rarely seen, original printing of the homemade comic produced by Robert and Charles Crumb, two young comics fans from Milford, Delaware. Designed as a parody comic in the style of Harvey Kurtzmans Mad and Humbug, it was printed with money earned working at the Latex Corporation during the summer, a job set up by their father. The comic was peddled door to door by the brothers, with little success; however, copies made their way into a small network of Kurtzman fans and became available by mail, which is how this copy (and the other two offered in this auction) were originally obtained. The comic graders here at Heritage have given it a strict grade based on current guidelines, but trust us this copy is absolutely gorgeous, obviously well cared for by its single owner all these years. Heres your chance to become the second caretaker! Not listed in Fogels or Overstreet. 92307 Foo #3 (Animal Town Comics, 1958) Condition: VF-. The third and final issue of Foo! includes a Charles Crumb cover, showing the heavy influence Walt Kelly had on his work. In a perfect world, Charles would have continued his cartooning alongside younger brother Robert, and today both artists would be receiving worldwide attention, but alas, it was not to be. There were to be more issues of Foo; in fact, most of the fourth issue, and a cover for #5 were completed before the boys ran out of steam. For Charles, this would pretty much be the end of the line; of course, we all know what happened to Roberts comics career! This seldom-seen little gem, part of a single-owner set, is the first copy of issue #3 Heritage has offered. It may be a very long time before another copy surfaces, especially one as pretty as this, so get those bids in, Crumb fans!

92313 Robert Williams Scrimshaw Skull Painting Original Art with Hand Made Frame (1979). A bouquet of ectoplasm floats above an ornately carved human skull in this vivid masterwork by the pioneering Underground legend. Robert Williamssupercartoon features the artists alternate title of Still Life with Apparition and the primitive figures match the carving on the skull. Williams, a key figure in the hot rod, Underground, and contemporary art worlds, is represented by blue-chip galleries, has been the subject of major museum exhibitions, and he has had a waiting list for his new work for years. Important vintage paintings rarely come onto the market and this is an absolutely classic example from a peak period, the same as the famed Guns N Roses Appetite for Destruction cover art. This masterpiece is housed in a custom-made frame created by the artist and is a great example of Williams influence on an entire generation of lowbrow artists, featured in such publications as Juxtapoz. The image was published in the book The Lowbrow Art of Robert Williams (Last Gasp, 1979), and it was also published as part of a set of eight limited edition prints, The Art and Imagery of Robert Williams, (Shanes and Shanes, 1982). This stunning masterpiece has an image area of 16 x 19, and it has been framed to an overall size of 29 x 32. The art is in Excellent condition.

CGC census 4/11: 9 in 9.4, 2 higher. 92319 Zap Comix #0 First Printing (Apex Novelties, 1967) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. This should have been Robert Crumbs first solo comic book, but it almost didnt get published at all! When Crumb completed the art, he handed it off to someone he knew to have it published, and thats the last he ever saw of it! Luckily, after publishing a different comic as Zap Comix #1, photocopies of this issue turned up, which Crumb re-inked and had published, hence the #0. This is a scarce first printing.

Fewer than 5,000 issues were printed and folded by hand, and then sold out of a baby carriage on the streets of Berkeley and San Francisco, so finding copies this nice can be quite a challenge. This copy features the somewhat lighter shade of blue (in the Zap logo) that was determined to be from the very beginning of the run, a shade Crumb was not pleased with, but one many collectors actually prefer.

Terms and Conditions of Auction


Auctioneer and Auction: 1. This Auction is presented by Heritage Auction Galleries, a d/b/a/ of Heritage Auctions, Inc., or its affiliates Heritage Numismatic Auctions, Inc., or Heritage Vintage Sports Auctions, Inc., or Currency Auctions of America, Inc., as identified with the applicable licensing information on the title page of the catalog or on the HA.com Internet site (the Auctioneer). The Auction is conducted under these Terms and Conditions of Auction and applicable state and local law. Announcements and corrections from the podium and those made through the Terms and Conditions of Auctions appearing on the Internet at HA.com supersede those in the printed catalog. Buyers Premium: 2. On bids placed through Auctioneer, a Buyers Premium of fifteen percent (15%) will be added to the successful hammer price bid on lots in Coin, Currency, and Philatelic auctions or nineteen and onehalf percent (19.5%) on lots in all other auctions. There is a minimum Buyers Premium of $14.00 per lot. In Gallery Auctions (sealed bid auctions of mostly bulk numismatic material), the Buyers Premium is 19.5%. Auction Venues: 3. The following Auctions are conducted solely on the Internet: Heritage Weekly Internet Auctions (Coin, Currency, Comics, Rare Books and Vintage Movie Poster); Heritage Monthly Internet Auctions (Sports and Rare Wine). Signature Auctions and Grand Format Auctions accept bids from the Internet, telephone, fax, or mail first, followed by a floor bidding session; Heritage Live and real- time telephone bidding are available to registered clients during these auctions. Bidders: 4. Any person participating or registering for the Auction agrees to be bound by and accepts these Terms and Conditions of Auction (Bidder(s)). 5. All Bidders must meet Auctioneers qualifications to bid. Any Bidder who is not a client in good standing of the Auctioneer may be disqualified at Auctioneers sole option and will not be awarded lots. Such determination may be made by Auctioneer in its sole and unlimited discretion, at any time prior to, during, or even after the close of the Auction. Auctioneer reserves the right to exclude any person from the auction. 6. If an entity places a bid, then the person executing the bid on behalf of the entity agrees to personally guarantee payment for any successful bid. Credit: 7. Bidders who have not established credit with the Auctioneer must either furnish satisfactory credit information (including two collectibles-related business references) well in advance of the Auction or supply valid credit card information. Bids placed through our Interactive Internet program will only be accepted from pre-registered Bidders; Bidders who are not members of HA.com or affiliates should pre-register at least 48 hours before the start of the first session (exclusive of holidays or weekends) to allow adequate time to contact references. Credit may be granted at the discretion of Auctioneer. Additionally Bidders who have not previously established credit or who wish to bid in excess of their established credit history may be required to provide their social security number or the last four digits thereof to us so a credit check may be performed prior to Auctioneers acceptance of a bid. Bidding Options: 8. Bids in Signature Auctions or Grand Format Auctions may be placed as set forth in the printed catalog section entitled Choose your bidding method. For auctions held solely on the Internet, see the alternatives on HA.com. Review at HA.com/common/howtobid.php. 9. Presentment of Bids: Non-Internet bids (including but not limited to podium, fax, phone and mail bids) are treated similar to floor bids in that they must be on-increment or at a half increment (called a cut bid). Any podium, fax, phone, or mail bids that do not conform to a full or half increment will be rounded up or down to the nearest full or half increment and this revised amount will be considered your high bid. 10. Auctioneers Execution of Certain Bids. Auctioneer cannot be responsible for your errors in bidding, so carefully check that every bid is entered correctly. When identical mail or FAX bids are submitted, preference is given to the first received. To ensure the greatest accuracy, your written bids should be entered on the standard printed bid sheet and be received at Auctioneers place of business at least two business days before the Auction start. Auctioneer is not responsible for executing mail bids or FAX bids received on or after the day the first lot is sold, nor Internet bids submitted after the published closing time; nor is Auctioneer responsible for proper execution of bids submitted by telephone, mail, FAX, e-mail, Internet, or in person once the Auction begins. Bids placed electronically via the internet may not be withdrawn until your written request is received and acknowledged by Auctioneer (FAX: 214-443-8425); such requests must state the reason, and may constitute grounds for withdrawal of bidding privileges. Lots won by mail Bidders will not be delivered at the Auction unless prearranged. 11. Caveat as to Bid Increments. Bid increments (over the current bid level) determine the lowest amount you may bid on a particular lot. Bids greater than one increment over the current bid can be any whole dollar amount. It is possible under several circumstances for winning bids to be between increments, sometimes only $1 above the previous increment. Please see: How can I lose by less than an increment? on our website. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only. No buy or unlimited bids will be accepted. The following chart governs current bidding increments. Current Bid .....................Bid Increment <$10 .................................... $1 $10 - $29 ............................. $2 $30 - $49 ............................. $3 $50 - $99 ............................. $5 $100 - $199 ......................... $10 $200 - $299 ......................... $20 $300 - $499 ......................... $25 $500 - $999 ......................... $50 $1,000 - $1,999 ................... $100 $2,000 - $2,999 ................... $200 $3,000 - $4,999 ................... $250 $5,000 - $9,999 ................... $500 $10,000 - $19,999 ............... $1,000 Current Bid.......................Bid Increment $20,000 - $29,999 .................$2,000 $30,000 - $49,999 .................$2,500 $50,000 - $99,999 .................$5,000 $100,000 - $199,999 .............$10,000 $200,000 - $299,999 .............$20,000 $300,000 - $499,999 .............$25,000 $500,000 - $999,999 .............$50,000 $1,000,000 - $1,999,999 .......$100,000 $2,000,000 - $2,999,999 .......$200,000 $3,000,000 - $4,999,999 .......$250,000 $5,000,000 - $9,999,999 .......$500,000 >$10,000,000 ........................$1,000,000 MAY PAY A REDUCED COMMISSION ON THOSE LOTS. Minimum Bids are generally posted online several days prior to the Auction closing. For any successful bid placed by a consignor on his Property on the Auction floor, or by any means during the live session, or after the Minimum Bid for an Auction have been posted, we will require the consignor to pay full Buyers Premium and Sellers Commissions on such lot. 14. The highest qualified Bidder recognized by the Auctioneer shall be the buyer. In the event of a tie bid, the earliest bid received or recognized wins. In the event of any dispute between any Bidders at an Auction, Auctioneer may at his sole discretion reoffer the lot. Auctioneers decision and declaration of the winning Bidder shall be final and binding upon all Bidders. Bids properly offered, whether by floor Bidder or other means of bidding, may on occasion be missed or go unrecognized; in such cases, the Auctioneer may declare the recognized bid accepted as the winning bid, regardless of whether a competing bid may have been higher. 15. Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse to honor any bid or to limit the amount of any bid, in its sole discretion. A bid is considered not made in Good Faith when made by an insolvent or irresponsible person, a person under the age of eighteen, or is not supported by satisfactory credit, collectibles references, or otherwise. Regardless of the disclosure of his identity, any bid by a consignor or his agent on a lot consigned by him is deemed to be made in Good Faith. Any person apparently appearing on the OFAC list is not eligible to bid. 16. Nominal Bids. The Auctioneer in its sole discretion may reject nominal bids, small opening bids, or very nominal advances. If a lot bearing estimates fails to open for 4060% of the low estimate, the Auctioneer may pass the item or may place a protective bid on behalf of the consignor. 17. Lots bearing bidding estimates shall open at Auctioneers discretion (approximately 50%-60% of the low estimate). In the event that no bid meets or exceeds that opening amount, the lot shall pass as unsold. 18. All items are to be purchased per lot as numerically indicated and no lots will be broken. Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw, prior to the close, any lots from the Auction. 19. Auctioneer reserves the right to rescind the sale in the event of nonpayment, breach of a warranty, disputed ownership, auctioneers clerical error or omission in exercising bids and reserves, or for any other reason and in Auctioneers sole discretion. In cases of nonpayment, Auctioneers election to void a sale does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to pay Auctioneer its fees (sellers and buyers premium) and any other damages or expenses pertaining to the lot. 20. Auctioneer occasionally experiences Internet and/or Server service outages, and Auctioneer periodically schedules system downtime for maintenance and other purposes, during which Bidders cannot participate or place bids. If such outages occur, we may at our discretion extend bidding for the Auction. Bidders unable to place their Bids through the Internet are directed to contact Client Services at 1-800-872-6467. 21. The Auctioneer, its affiliates, or their employees consign items to be sold in the Auction, and may bid on those lots or any other lots. Auctioneer or affiliates expressly reserve the right to modify any such bids at any time prior to the hammer based upon data made known to the Auctioneer or its affiliates. The Auctioneer may extend advances, guarantees, or loans to certain consignors. 22. The Auctioneer has the right to sell certain unsold items after the close of the Auction. Such lots shall be considered sold during the Auction and all these Terms and Conditions shall apply to such sales including but not limited to the Buyers Premium, return rights, and disclaimers. Payment: 23. All sales are strictly for cash in United States dollars (including U.S. currency, bank wire, cashier checks, travelers checks, eChecks, and bank money orders, all subject to reporting requirements). All are subject to clearing and funds being received In Auctioneers account before delivery of the purchases. Auctioneer reserves the right to determine if a check constitutes good funds when drawn on a U.S. bank for ten days, and thirty days when drawn on an international bank. Credit Card (Visa or Master Card only) and PayPal payments may be accepted up to $10,000 from nondealers at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer, subject to the following limitations: a) sales are only to the cardholder, b) purchases are shipped to the cardholders registered and verified address, c) Auctioneer may pre-approve the cardholders credit line, d) a credit card transaction may not be used in conjunction with any other financing or extended terms offered by the Auctioneer, and must transact immediately upon invoice presentation, e) rights of return are governed by these Terms and Conditions, which supersede those conditions promulgated by the card issuer, f) floor Bidders must present their card. 24. Payment is due upon closing of the Auction session, or upon presentment of an invoice. Auctioneer reserves the right to void an invoice if payment in full is not received within 7 days after the close of the Auction. In cases of nonpayment, Auctioneers election to void a sale does not relieve the Bidder from their obligation to pay Auctioneer its fees (sellers and buyers premium) on the lot and any other damages pertaining to the lot. 25. Lots delivered to you, or your representative in the States of Texas, California, New York, or other states where the Auction may be held, are subject to all applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate permits are on file with Auctioneer. (Note: Coins are only subject to sales tax in California on invoices under $1500 and in Texas on invoices under $1000. Check the Web site at: http://coins.ha.com/c/ ref/sales-tax.zx for more details.) Bidder agrees to pay Auctioneer the actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an expired, inaccurate, inappropriate tax certificate or declaration, 2) an incorrect interpretation of the applicable statute, 3) or any other reason. The appropriate form or certificate must be on file at and verified by Auctioneer five days prior to Auction or tax must be paid; only if such form or certificate is received by Auctioneer within 4 days after the Auction can a refund of tax paid be made. Lots from different Auctions may not be aggregated for sales tax purposes. 26. In the event that a Bidders payment is dishonored upon presentment(s), Bidder shall pay the maximum statutory processing fee set by applicable state law. If you attempt to pay via eCheck and your financial institution denies this transfer from your bank account, or the payment cannot be completed using the selected funding source, you agree to complete payment using your credit card on file. 27. If any Auction invoice submitted by Auctioneer is not paid in full when due, the unpaid balance will bear interest at the highest rate permitted by law from the date of invoice until paid. Any invoice not paid when due will bear a three percent (3%) late fee on the invoice amount or three percent (3%) of any installment that is past due. If the Auctioneer refers any invoice to an attorney for collection, the buyer agrees to pay attorneys fees, court costs, and other collection costs incurred by Auctioneer. If Auctioneer assigns collection to its in-house legal staff, such attorneys time expended on the matter shall be compensated at a rate comparable to the hourly rate of independent attorneys. 28. In the event a successful Bidder fails to pay any amounts due, Auctioneer reserves the right to sell the lot(s) securing the invoice to any underbidders in the Auction that the lot(s) appeared, or at subsequent private or public sale, or relist the lot(s) in a future auction conducted by Auctioneer. A defaulting Bidder agrees to pay for the reasonable costs of resale (including a 10% sellers commission, if consigned to an auction conducted by Auctioneer). The defaulting Bidder is liable to pay any difference between his total original invoice for the lot(s), plus any applicable interest, and the net proceeds for the lot(s) if sold at private sale or the subsequent hammer price of the lot(s) less the 10% sellers commissions, if sold at an Auctioneers auction. 29. Auctioneer reserves the right to require payment in full in good funds before delivery of the merchandise.

12. If Auctioneer calls for a full increment, a bidder may request Auctioneer to accept a bid at half of the increment (Cut Bid) only once per lot. After offering a Cut Bid, bidders may continue to participate only at full increments. Off-increment bids may be accepted by the Auctioneer at Signature Auctions and Grand Format Auctions.

FINE AND DECORATIVE ARTS TERM D: The Auction is not on approval. Under extremely limited circumstances (e.g. gross cataloging error), not including attributions in BOLD-face type, which are addressed in Term F below, a purchaser who did not bid from the floor may request Auctioneer to evaluate voiding a sale; such request must be made in writing detailing the alleged gross error, and submission of the lot to Auctioneer must be pre-approved by Auctioneer. A bidder must notify the appropriate department head (check the inside front cover of the catalog or our website for a listing of department heads) in writing of the purchasers request within three (3) days of the non-floor bidders receipt of the lot. Any lot that is to be evaluated for return must be received in our offices within 40 days after Auction. AFTER THAT 40-DAY PERIOD, NO LOT MAY BE RETURNED FOR ANY REASON. Lots returned must be in the same condition as when sold and must include any Certificate of Authenticity. No lots purchased by floor bidders (including those bidders acting as agents for others) may be returned. Late remittance for purchases may be considered just cause to revoke all return privileges. FINE AND DECORATIVE ARTS TERM E: The catalog descriptions are provided for identification purposes only. Bidders who intend to challenge a BOLD-face provision in the description of a lot must notify Auctioneer in writing within forty (40) days of the Auctions conclusion. In the event Auctioneer cannot deliver the lot or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title or the BOLD-face section of description is incorrect, or other transfer or condition issue is claimed, Auctioneers liability shall be limited to rescission of sale and refund of purchase price. In no case shall Auctioneers maximum liability exceed the successful bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the lot.

FINE AND DECORATIVE ARTS TERM F: Any claim as to authorship, provenance, authenticity, or other matter under the remedies provided in the Fine Arts Terms and Conditions or otherwise must be first transmitted to Auctioneer by credible and definitive evidence within the applicable claim period.

Upon receipt of the two opinions, Auctioneer shall determine whether to rescind the sale. The Purchasers claim must be presented in accord with the remedies provided herein and is subject to the limitations and restrictions provided (including within the described time limitations). Regardless of Purchasers submissions there is no assurance after such presentment that Auctioneer will validate the claim.

The right of rescission, return, or any other remedy provided in these Terms and Conditions, or any other applicable law, does not extend to authorship of any lot which at the date of Auction was in accordance with the then generally accepted opinion of scholars and specialists, despite the subsequent discovery of new information, whether historical or physical, concerning the artist, his students, school, workshop or followers. Purchaser by placing a bid expressly waives any claim or damage based on such subsequent information as described herein. It is specifically understood that any refund agreed to by the Auctioneer would be limited to the purchase price. FINE AND DECORATIVE ARTS TERM G: Provenance and authenticity, excluding attributions in BOLD-face type, are guaranteed by neither the consignor nor Auctioneer.

While Heritage is not obligated to provide a condition report of each lot, Bidders may feel free to contact the department for a Condition Report and Heritage will attempt to furnish one, but shall not be liable for failing to do so. Condition is often detailed online, but is not included in our catalogues. The Bidder should review online descriptions as the descriptions supercede catalog descriptions and those condition reports otherwise provided.

All lots offered regardless of a condition report are sold AS IS.

Interview by Hector Cantu


Stephen A. Geppi, president and CEO of Geppis Entertainment Museum at Camden Yards, with a Richie Rich Teeny Weeny MiniMaquette, produced by Electric Tiki Design in 2002 as the first in a series of licensed Harvey Comics sculptures.

tephen Geppi doesnt hesitate when asked to talk about his childhood. When i was 5, the first thing i learned to read from was a comic book, Geppi says as he recalls his boyhood in Baltimore in the 1950s. i remember my mother bringing home comics. They were all over the place. Subsequently, i became an avid comic fan. i cant say i was a collector in the sense that i understood condition. i just loved them. Over the next 50 years, that love would create one of the worlds most important collections of American pop culture. Youd be hard-pressed to find another CEO who could tell you off the top of his head what the cover of Colossus Comics #1 looks like, says Barry Sandoval, director of Heritage Auction Galleries comics operations. His passion

for American pop culture is unparalleled and his collection is one of the finest ever put together. Geppis love for pop culture became a full-time pursuit in the 1970s when he opened a comic book store in the basement of a TV repair shop. That quickly grew to four shops and, subsequently, ownership of a company that would become Diamond Comic Distributors, the worlds largest distributor of English-language comic books that today represents top publishing powerhouses like DC Comics, Marvel Comics and Dark Horse Comics. Along the way, Geppi founded Gemstone publishing inc., which publishes titles such as The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, The Official Price Guide to Pop Culture: 150 Years of Character Toys & Collectibles, Hakes Price Guide To Character Toys, and North American editions of Disney comics. Other Geppi companies include hobby games distributor Alliance Game Distributors; and Diamond Select Toys and Collectibles. Most recently, he opened Geppis Entertainment Museum at Baltimores Camden Yards, which bills itself as Americas premier pop-culture museum. When he was 9, Geppi recalls finding comic book back issues in a neighborhood liquor store. There were these little boxes in the back room, says Geppi, 59. They were a nickel each. Then the owner introduced the quarter box and the 50-cent box. He finally gave me a job at the store to support my fix, my habit. He would say, How do you want to be paid, kid, with comics or with money? it makes no difference to me. i always took the comics.

to preserve your comics, it helps to understand how they are made and whats working against you. early papers, those made up to the middle of the 19th century, were made from cotton and linen rags. even today, most of these papers are still strong and durable, especially if they were stored properly in conditions that were not overly warm or humid. newsprint, on the other hand, is made from ground wood. it contains impurities, including lignin, a polymer that breaks down when exposed to oxygen and ultraviolet light.

Dont confuse peanuts with Peanuts. The year saw the first piece of Peanuts art to break the six-figure price barrier when a 1955 strip featuring a baseball-playing Charlie Brown sold for $113,525. Prices for original strips by Charles M. Schulz (1922-2000) have tripled overR epast few years, says Jim Halperin, co-chairman at A U c t I o n P the V I e W Heritage Auction Galleries. Its likely that more works will come to market soon, Halperin says. Schulz was extremely generous, and gave so many away to practically anyone who wrote him a fan letter. At the same time, the $101,575 realized for an original Robert Crumb (b.1943) Mr. Natural cover was the highest ever paid at auction for work by s underground t R IK In G Geo RGe H eR R I M A n sU n DAYthe t R IP A scomics legend (see page 58).

George Herriman (1880-1944) Krazy Kat sunday comic strip original art, dated Feb. 20, 1921 estimate: $12,000-$15,000

In most comics, love is symbolized with a heart. In George Herrimans groundbreaking comic strip Krazy Kat, it was often associated with a brick thrown at the head. Appearing in newspapers for 31 years beginning in 1913, Krazy Kats blend of slapstick humor, social criticism and poetic language has made it a favorite of comic aficionados. original Krazy Kat strips easily fetch up to $20,000, with a 1922 strip, one of only 10 full-page saturday Krazy Kat originals ever completed, realizing $53,775 in november 2006. An original sunday Krazy Kat strip is featured in Heritages Vintage comics & comic Art signature Auction, scheduled for August. In the strip, Krazy contemplates the beauty of baby grand pianos. For every Grand canyon, there should be a Baby Grand canyon, Herriman writes. the strip concludes with Ignatz Mouse eyeing a baby brick to hurl at Krazy as a grand tap. Visually, this is one of the most attractive of all Herrimans pages, especially the next-to-last panel, a study of the two pianos with a silhouetted wall in the background, says Heritage comic art specialist David tosh. this kind of work places Herriman among the greatest cartoonists of the 20th century, influencing people like Bill Watterson, charles schulz and Will eisner.

Dear Fellow Collector, Were very proud to present this special catalog featuring the collection of Gary Dahlberg. On the following pages, you can read all about this collector who was before his time when it came to handling collectible comics. Please note that this catalog only represents the tip of the iceberg. The collection has more than 6,000 comics, including not only Marvel and DC but also Charlton and Gold Key. Look for more almost every week in our Sunday Internet Comics Auctions at HA.com. Finally, if its at all possible for you to come to New York to look at the books in person, we think it would be well worth your while. Wed hate for you to miss the thrill that we had going through this wonderful collection. Sincerely,

Ed Jaster

About Gary Dahlberg and the Twin Cities pedigree


When I first saw images of these comics, I thought it had a chance to be one of the best collections Heritage had ever offered, said Ed Jaster of Heritage, and when I saw the comics in person I knew it for sure. Its definitely the best Silver Age Marvel collection weve sold. While a million-dollar payday is in the cards, it will never be enjoyed by the man who put the collection together, Gary Dahlberg of Minneapolis, who perished in a tragic fire last year at age 62. Gary had just retired a few months earlier, and planned to sell his house in to move further north to Duluth with his girlfriend. As his longtime friend Jim Randers puts it, He was about to start a new chapter in his life and that chapter never got written. Gary had graduated from art school with dreams of becoming a cartoonist. To pay bills he worked for the bus driving company while still planning to get into commercial art. The art field is difficult to break into, and Gary settled into a career as a bus driver. Gary never made a living doing his art or any form of art. He had a big talent but always found a reason not to go forward with it, Randers says. On July 8, 2010, disaster struck. That afternoon, Gary was cleaning the oven in his kitchen, on the ground floor of a two-story house, when (as far as anyone can tell) he apparently got lightheaded from the chemicals he was using and went to lie down in the bedroom directly above the kitchen. He had been using two different cleaning agents, and this combustible mixture caught fire. A neighbor dialed 911, but by the time the fire department got to the house and got Gary out, he had a pulse but he wasnt breathing. He died on the way to the hospital. The entire house was charred, smoke-damaged, and ruined except for the two front bedrooms, and thats where he kept his comic book collection. No fire or water touched a single book. When it came time for Gary funeral, the ceremony was in keeping with his life and his hobbies (in addition to comic books, he collected Star Wars and also loved Disney). At the entrance to the funeral home stood two five-foot-tall statues he owned, one of E.T. and one of the ghostly face from Scream, each holding a bouquet of comic books. Many of the attendees were dressed in comic character T-shirts, and Gary was buried wearing a Star Wars T-shirt and on top of that a long-sleeved unbuttoned Disney shirt. Thats how you would see Gary 90% of the time, his brother-in-law Tom Madison tells us. As any comic collector reading this knows, a common stereotype of a comic collector is of a loner type who doesnt have friends. But Garys funeral was well-attended. Tom says, He had lots and lots of friends, though a lot of them had never met each other Ive never seen a funeral where that many people get up and talk about a guy and tell jokes and stories. Still, Gary Dahlberg was a unique character. His family tells us that he was an artistic type who didnt pay attention to some mundane details, and was a kid at heart. Jim Randers says, You wouldnt notice him in a crowd, just a guy with glasses that needed repair or replacement. He had a twinkle in his eye, however, and a way of talking that brought out discourse and challenged ones perspective on a subject.

While Stan Lee was Gary hero and favorite writer, in general he collected more for the art, and admired the way artists could imply the action between panels. Thats not to say he didnt see the comics as an investment quite the contrary. Even as a teenager he showed his sisters the proper way to handle a comic without causing color breaks. In later years he solved the problem by not letting anyone including his best friend touch the books (we comic collectors can all see the wisdom in that!). Gary knew that the comic collection was fairly valuable, though he had only ever sold two comic books in his entire life one for $1,000 to finance a computer to enable him to catalogue the rest of his collection, and one for $50,000 to pay off his house.

A fan letter from Nick Fury #11 (1969).

Garys four sisters chose Garys brother-in-law Tom, the family member with the most business experience, to negotiate the selling of the comic collection. Once Tom found out that some of the comics were kept in a safety deposit box, he surmised that they could be fairly valuable but we figured if it was worth $50,000 thats a lot, he says. His first step was to call local comic stores for an estimate or appraisal. They came up with numbers that were phenomenal, the range was $190,000 - $230,000, Tom says. We thought yeah right, maybe thats full retail. Still, the big numbers made it clear that Id better do more than just talk to the local comic book guy. He spoke to a one of the major national dealers who gave him the number of Ed Jaster at Heritage. At first, outright sale was a consideration: Gary lived comic books for 50 years, they thought, lets find someone who will come in and give us a decent bid and take them off our hands, and whatever profit we make, great, but it became apparent that auctions would be the best way to maximize the value. Tom discussed the collection with Heritage and other firms, showing them scans and an inventory list, and he entertained two final proposals before he and Garys sisters decided to go with Heritage. Shortly after picking up the collection, Heritage arranged for a CGC representative to review it for pedigree consideration. A few days later, after carefully inspecting the books, CGC confirmed that this original-owner collection (not counting the pre-Silver Age books that were purchased secondhand) would be certified as a pedigree collection under the name Twin Cities. Heritage is proud to offer this original-owner collection, one of the very best we have ever brought to the market.

The Gary DahlberG ColleCTion

91001 Action Comics #7 (DC, 1938) CGC FR 1.0 Off-white to white pages. While this auction is focused on Gary Dahlbergs original-owner Twin Cities pedigree collection for the most part, Mr. Dahlberg did pick up some secondhand gems in his day as well, most notably this copy of one of the hottest Golden Age books around! Its the second Superman cover ever, and tied with Detective #22 as the second superhero cover in the history of comics. Formerly somewhat under the radar, this book has rocketed into Overstreets top 15 in just the past few years. While this copy is Fair for reasons clearly visible on our scan, well note that the last three copies of #7 we auctioned sold for 2-6 times Guide, and we expect strong interest in this one as well. CGC notes, Moderate amount of tape on cover & interior. Overstreet 2010 GD 2.0 value = $6,060. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 1.0, 14 higher.

91005 The Amazing Spider-Man #2 Twin Cities pedigree (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Probably the most desirable comic book of the entire Twin Cities pedigree, this is the book that made the strongest impression on most of our staff when we got our first glimpse of the Gary Dahlberg collection. Heritage hadnt offered this book in a grade above NM- 9.2 before (and just once in that grade)! Pull up other copies of this issue in our online archives, even other high-grade copies, and youll see what sets this one apart: the bold red background is not the least bit faded, the Spidey vignette at upper left is clean, and the black portion at the middle of the right edge is completely unblemished. Back in 1995 a Comic Book Marketplace panel of experts ranked #2 the toughest issue of the #1-50 run to find in VF or better. Even if youre in the select group that owns this issue in such a high grade, the likelihood seems very strong that this would be an upgrade to your present specimen. The issue has the first appearances of the Vulture, with cover and interior art by Steve Ditko. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 4/11: 4 in 9.6, none higher.

91006 The Amazing Spider-Man #3 Twin Cities pedigree (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. This is the first appearance of Doctor Octopus. Take notice of how black the blacks are on this copy (youll see what we mean when you look at it)! While this might not get as much attention as the #2, 4, or 9 were offering in this same run, those books shouldnt overshadow what would be the crown jewel of many a Spidey run. Cover art by Steve Ditko. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $8,500. CGC census 4/11: 8 in 9.4, 4 higher.

91007 The Amazing Spider-Man #4 Twin Cities pedigree (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. This is the first copy of #4 to be certified as high as 9.6, despite 700 CGC submissions of unrestored copies to date! And this is the only issue of the entire Amazing Spider-Man run that hadnt yet seen a 9.6 or higher certification. Issue #4 had always been considered a tough book to find in high grade indeed, back in 1995 a Comic Book Marketplace panel of experts called it the second-hardest issue (of the first 50) to find in VF or better. The hardcore Spidey collector will want to spend a long time looking at the sharp vignette at upper left (one of our in-house gurus is fond of saying that if the vignette on a Silver Age Marvel looks nice, the rest of the book invariably does too) as well as the sharp (in both senses of the word) upper right corner. This could well give Mr. Dahlbergs copy of #2 a run for its money as the most valuable comic in the collection. Making his first appearance in the issue is the Sandman, whos now known to more than just hardcore hobbyists since he appeared in one of the SpiderMan movie (and the tons of merchandise that went with it)! The connoisseur of all things Peter Parker will also note the debuts of two of the key early gals in the strips ongoing soap opera, namely Betty Brant and Liz Allen. Steve Ditko drew the cover as well as the interior. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $6,800. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 9.6, none higher.

91064 The Avengers #16 Twin Cities pedigree (Marvel, 1965) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. One of the best covers of the early run announced the results of the teams first-ever shakeup. When the smoke cleared, the new lineup consisted of Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and the Scarlet Witch. Now then: is this the best existing copy of this comic? We sold the 9.6 Pacific Coast copy some years ago, and while that book had white pages, it also had some Marvel chips while this copy has no trace of them.

91074 Batman #171 Twin Cities pedigree (DC, 1965) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Not only is this the first 9.6 certified to date, a mere two copies have even made it to 9.4. This may well be the most desirable DC in the Twin Cities pedigree collection. The issue is the first Silver Age appearance of the Riddler. Not only was this his first appearance since 1948, it was the issue that made the character. Rumor has it that when William Dozier, who became the producer of the Batman TV show, first got his hands on a copy of a Batman comic, it happened to be this issue, which is why the semiobscure villain was the featured baddie in the very first episode of the TV show. Thereafter, the Prince of Puzzlers became a fixture on the show and has appeared in the movies as well. Mr. E. Nigma is drawn here by Carmine Infantino. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $925. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 9.6, none higher.

We hadnt seen this book in a grade above 9.0 before, and never expected to see a 9.8 given the part-black, part-purple cover. Batman cover by Carmine Infantino. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $130. CGC census 4/11: 1 in 9.8, none higher.

91084 Daredevil #7 Twin Cities pedigree (Marvel, 1965) CGC NM- 9.2 White pages. This is the best copy weve ever offered of #7, a book that stopped being under the radar a few years back as more people realized its significance. Its the first appearance of the Daredevils red costume, which is the look the character has kept (more or less) for the ensuing 46 years. Both the costume design and the cover art were by Wally Wood. Overstreet 2010 NM- 9.2 value = $1,550. CGC census 4/11: 20 in 9.2, 6 higher.

CGC census 4/11: 19 in 6.5, 60 higher. 91092 Detective Comics #395 Twin Cities pedigree (DC, 1970) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. This is the first 9.6 certified of what seems to us an absurdly undervalued comic book. This is the first Denny ONeil and Neal Adams collaboration on Batman, and that duo was pure magic anytime they handled the character. So while Green Lantern #76 (also by ONeil and Adams) gets the glory as the most valuable Bronze Age DC, this book that came out three months earlier has less than one-tenth the Guide value?? And #395 inexplicably has less than half the Guide value of Detective #400 (nothing against Man-Bat, but...). To us it speaks volumes that #395 was chosen as one of the DC Millennium editions, representing the most significant comics the company had published. Cover art by Adams.

91094 Fantastic Four #2 Twin Cities pedigree (Marvel, 1962) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white to white pages. Thousands of dollars might still be a bargain for this copy given the very strong eye appeal.

And what an issue #50 was not only does it have the final installment of the three-part epic that introduced the Silver Surfer and Galactus, it gave kids even more for their twelve cents with Johnny Storm in college and the first appearance of a memorable supporting character in Wyatt Wingfoot.

This is the second Human Torch solo appearance and a book that you usually find in fairly rough shape how refreshing is it to see a 9.2?
