A CGC 9.0 copy of Action Comics #1 (the first appearance of Superman) is up for auction on eBay right now, and the price continues to skyrocket.

actioncomics1_9cgc

As of this posting, the much sought after issue has hit $1,750,200, and is expected to climb higher before the auction closes at the end of the week.  What is amazing about this particular copy is how white the pages are after 76 years thanks to a cool dry environment in a high elevation and stored in a cedar chest.

This particular copy is the nicest that has ever been graded, with an ASTONISHING grade of CGC 9.0 ! To date, no copies have been graded higher and only one other copy has received the same grade. It is fair to say though that this copy blows the other 9.0 out of the water. Compared to the other 9.0 that sold for $2.1million several years ago it has significant superior eye appeal, extremely vibrant colors and PERFECT WHITE PAGES. This means after 76 years the aging process has yet to begin. Truly this book is a museum piece. It is one of only two copies of this comic in ANY condition to ever be graded with the distinction of having White pages, the other being a CGC 2.5 !

So are you ready to drop the big bucks and own the most valuable comic in comic book history?  You have six days and counting to place your bid on this no reserve auction!
