The Legacy of Superman #1 Second Printing
I’ve been spending some time over the last few months searching eBay for raw copies of the harder to find later printings I still need for my Death and Return of Superman collection. One such book on my list was Superman: The Legacy of Superman #1 Second Printing, a true ghost, I have yet to see one in a comic shop or for sale online. After searching unsuccessfully, I decided to reach out to a friend, who just so happened to have a 9.8 copy certified by CGC. To my surprise my friend agreed to sell it to me.
This copy is beautiful, this issue is most likely the rarest of the later printings from this storyline, not just in grade, just rare, period. Thank you @onlyweaknesskryptonite! As of this writing I’m only the fifth collector in CGC history to have a certified 9.8 of this printing. The first 9.8 belonged to a registry user who then sold it to @Iconic1s, last year onlyweaknesskryptonite submitted two raw copies, and both came back in 9.8, making for a total of only 3 in the census.
It's also great to check an item off the list! As you can see by the whiteout, I’ve parted with a few of these but got most of them back.
