Item Description


HIGH GRADE PEDIGREE JIMMY OLSEN #133, THE LANDMARK SILVER-AGE ISSUE WHERE JACK KIRBY STARTED HIS STINT ON THE COVER AND STORY!

This superb comic-book was strictly graded by CGC and boasts phenomenal eye appeal.

 THIS FEATURES A CLASSIC KIRBY COVER WITH THE MAN OF STEEL GETTING KNOCKED DOWN BY JIMMY AND SOME BEATNIK BIKERS ON CHOPPERS AND OTHER CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES, AND FOR MANY  YEARS, THE FINEST COPY TO EVER SURFACE WAS CERTIFIED AT JUST NM+ 9.6.  A GRAND TOTAL OF TWO COPIES HAVE EVER SOLD IN SLIGHTLY FINER CONDITION, BUT NEITHER OF THEM COULD MATCH THE FLAT-OUT WHITE PAGES OF THIS BEAUTY, OR THE HISTORIC PROVENANCE!   

IT'S VERY TOUGH TO GET ABOVE NEAR MINT- 9.2, AND VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE IN THIS SUPERLATIVE NEAR MINT PLUS STATE, ~NOT TO MENTION THE HEAVY GLOSS THAT THIS BEAUTY RETAINS!

 IF YOU MISS THIS CHANCE, YOU MAY WANT TO RESIGN YOURSELF TO SETTLING FOR A MERE 9.4 OR LESS...

SUPERMAN IS THE ARCHETYPICAL SUPERHERO, LONG CREDITED WITH KICKING OFF THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMICS WITH HIS DEBUT IN ACTION COMICS IN 1938.  OVER THE PAST 75 YEARS HE HAS HAS DEVELOPED INTO ONE OF THE TRUE TOP ICONS OF AMERICAN POP CULTURE, AND THESE LATE SILVER TO EARLY BRONZE-AGE ISSUES BY THE 'KING' ARE AMONG THE MORE BELOVED. 

STUNNING EXAMPLE WITH AN BRIGHT BLUE LOGO CONTRASTING AGAINST A YELLOW-ORANGE COVER WITH THE MAN OF STEEL GETTING WHALLOPED BY THE BIKER GANG. 

THIS ALSO FEATURES GREAT INTERIOR ART BY JACK KING KIRBY STARRING SUPERMAN AND OTHER TOP CHARACTERS.

This super-long running series is one of the more influential, spanning for many decades and becoming much more socially relevent after Jack Kirby and Neal Adams came on board.  The brilliant background of the cover provide great contrasts and it is a treat to behold when it's unblemished by such pesky detractors as soiling or other obvious flaws like creases and spine-stresses.  Superman & Lois Lane are both household names with all the toys and videogames and statues and animation and action-figures and clothing and the plethora of other licensed merchandise.  A new Superman and Batman film is much anticipated by fans, and soon will be bringing the the love of these iconic characters to still another generation of fans around the world...  It doesn't get much more "Blue Chip" than this!     

Each item is securely-boxed, with plenty of protective packaging material.

This incredible original first-print comic-book WILL find a new home, as the asking price is LOW and there is NO RESERVE! 

ALWAYS POPULAR, BUT INCREASINGLY RARE, UNRESTORED HIGH-GRADE SPECIMENS OF THIS OLD 15-CENTER ARE ONLY GETTING HOTTER!

This historic comic is a real find in unrestored NM or better shape, as most copies had production flaws such as printing creases or scuffs or distributor ink, while others were read and re-read, time and time again, and with the glossy cover even the tiniest flaws seem magnified.  However, this copy is spectacular, as it's lustrous and clean and there is no distracting wear or obvious aging, and it has precise printing registration.  And the gloss is excellent, too!  This crushes most of the "Mint" old comics I purchased over the decades back in the pre-CGC era.  Good luck finding this level of eye appeal again in the future, as this beauty boasts deep rich uniform colors and a flat clean appearance, devoid of common problems such as print-creases and and chips, and the deep gloss is a bonus.  In the scans, there are refections and glare, which is not evident when viewing the actual book in person. 

We are also now auctioning other nice CGC vintage comics, plus rare comic art; And we'll be offering hundreds of other collectable comics in the next few months.  Check out our ebay items regularly!

 A lot has happened with Clark Kent and his alter-ego in the past four and a half decades since this gem came out, adding more allure to the fabled vintage issues such as this;  so I don't suggest waiting around until these crucial books have gone through the roof....  High-grade specimens of this hot issue are always in demand, but are almost never available in the market, in such well-preserved condition with incredible luster and deep colors like this! 

 This is an investment that you can show and display proudly, without worrying about damage or degradation of the nice supple clean snow-white paper, thanks to the benefit of professional Comic Guaranty Corporation encapsulation. With demand that exceeds supply, premium prices typically occur when a best-certified beauty such as this finally reaches the market.  

Great cover colors; And the gloss is phenomenal, which must be seen in person to be appreciated.   If you are a discriminating Morgan Edge collector, serious CGC-graded comics investor, or just a devout silver-age DC collector and prefer unrestored books without significant flaws, then NOW is your brief window of opportunity.  It looks less appealing in the disappointing picture, with lots of glare and lines from our scanner,  ~but in person the book looks spectacular and the super bright colors really leap out at you!  

 The extremely conservative Overall CGC Universal Grade is NEAR MINT/MINT; --it looks more like dead mint from outside the clear plastic CGC case!

This extra bright clean copy sports the Blue Unrestored CGC Label;  --And the CGC case is unblemished, with no scuffs or cracks.
