The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #1 Facsimile Edition
This year, as we celebrate the Guide’s 50th anniversary, we are very pleased to offer a faithful reproduction of the one that started it all. The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #1 Facsimile Edition reproduces the very first volume and includes the original prices, the original articles, and the original ads.
In 1970, the top price the Guide listed for Action Comics #1 was $300. Today, it’s listed for $4.2 million! Likewise, the top price for Detective Comics #27 was $275. Today, it’s listed for $2.8 million!
The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #1 was released October/November 1970. There were just 1,000 copies in the first printing (white cover) and 800 in the second printing (blue cover). The Guide has itself become a collectible over the years. A copy of a first printing of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #1 CGC 9.2 has sold for $9,000!
For five decades, the Guide has been The Bible of comic book collectors, dealers and historians. A high grade original copy of the 1970 original could cost you thousands of dollars, but now you can have your own faithful replica of that landmark edition!
