Compared to the other first issues in ‘63-‘64,  for sure a bargain. But the character doesn’t really get interesting until well into the hundreds, versus iconic early-issue runs in Spider-Man, FF, X-Men, Avengers, etc. So it makes sense the first issue would be a fraction of the value of the others. (And I’m saying that as someone who ONLY collects DD.) 

Good points..

I wonder also if issue 1 has the yellow costume  and not the iconic costume we all know and love might be a factor?

 

Daredevil #7

Which story were you thinking of? Byrne or Lee?

The Doom Christmas story by Byrne is awesome.  There’s a ton of fun stuff in that book.

1st unauthorized appearance of Bart Simpson is the main attraction though....

Possibly! But also the stories just aren’t that good and the rogues gallery is mostly forgettable — Bullseye doesn’t even appear until 131, and Elektra, 158. It’s also telling that the most valuable early keys feature characters introduced elsewhere, like Electro, Namor, and Spidey. A value, for sure, but I don’t think it’s UNDER-valued.

Ambush Bug 1

First appearance of Cheeks, The Toy Wonder.

Astonishing that this brilliant character hasn’t at least been given an animated series.

Nothing in the comic world is undervalued anymore, IMO.

I will say that Epic 1 is a pretty cool magazine for the price.  

Yup.

Frazetta, Buscema, Pini, Starlin, Suydam.

Some of Starlin’s career best, especially.

I think pulp books and bedsheets and most magazines are severely underpriced compared with comics. 

Think of all the pulp covers that would be labeled as "classics" by the CGC if they were in the comic book format.

I'm going to shamelessly promote a GA book I own. 

I've always thought this was a classic PCH cover, but it doesn't seem to get a lot of love. Its scarce, so maybe the lack of opportunity helps to keep awareness down, but there were a few copies on eBay for under $1500 (possibly still there) and that just felt cheap for such a cool cover.

Conan 58 - 1st Belit

Overstreet has it wrong as 2nd appearance so it is undervalued - not sure how long it will take them to correct it, if ever, so may not be easy money!

Key Collector says 58 is Bellits 1st appearance so that is what matters in year 2022 not what Overstreet says.
