Showcase #4 Comic 1956 1st App Flash CBCS 9.8 Justice League Movie Silver Age
Grade: CBCS NM/M: 9.8 in near perfect off white/white pages. Professional restoration with no trimming. It is widely believed that Showcase 4 didn't just introduce the modern version of the Flash -- this is the comic that may have saved the entire comic book industry from impending collapse and is widely considered the comic that ushered in the Silver Age of comics. Now, the Flash is inspiring yet another generation of comic lovers with his hit television series on the CW, while simultaneously poised to make an appearance on the big screen in the long awaited Justice League movie, all of which contribute to demand for his first appearance.

This is #4 on Overstreet's Top 50 Silver Age Comics list and one of the iconic books of comic history. The current CGC census reports that no comic rated better than 9.6 has ever passed through their hands, and CBCS has no census yet, so I will venture to say that this is the highest-graded Showcase #4 in existence and a quintessential addition to the ultimate Silver Age collection. The book practically sparkles; once this copy goes into a collection it might not come out for a long time, so don't end up on the outside looking in. So what's a 9.8 worth?

Except, of course, that such a comic at this point does not exist, and I think the likelihood of such a gem surfacing 60 years after publication now is unlikely... So again, I will venture to say that this is the finest, most beautiful copy of Showcase #4 in existence. And finally, the current CGC census shows just over 350 copies of Showcase #4 that have ever been graded, restored and unrestored, in the history of CGC's existence.

That's how scarce Showcase#4 is. For comparison, there have been over 3,000 copies of Amazing Spider-Man #1 (I own 5 of them - please check my other auctions) and 2,500 copies of Amazing Fantasy #15 that have passed through CGC's hands. There are even 1,300 copies of Incredible Hulk #1 in the world. To put it a different way, Showcase #4 is about 10 times more rare than ASM#1 and 8 times more rare than AF#15.

This must be why the latest 2017 Overstreet Price Guide #47 shows that Showcase #4 had one of the largest gains in value (30%) in just the past 1 year compared to all other top Silver Age keys - the investment potential on this one is just solid. USA buyers only on this one.
