Supermans place in American History, Pop Culture and Comic History has been etched before most of us were even born! Superman is known universally across the globe and is an icon in the same way the names of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth are.
You can ask people who do not know a thing about sports and they will know exactly who each of those names are. In the same way, those that know little about comics know Superman. The significance of Superman in pop culture and American History cannot be understated and the significance of Superman #1 is broad and far reaching. Superman paved the way for countless others and began a trend that continues today and has become part of the fabric of our lives. Despite the fact that Action Comics #1 is the 1st appearance of the Man of Steel and it is also the comic that is known as the first true superhero comic, there is something uniquely special and Iconic about Superman #1.
It might be the fact that it is the first comic to have Superman in the title or the fact that its the first issue of his regular title completely dedicated to Superman or it might be simply the fact that the iconic yellow cover coupled with the elusive back cover pin up are etched indelibly in every comic fans brain. Not to be overlooked is the fact that Superman #1 is just about as hard a book to acquire as Action Comics #1.

There are an estimated 150 to 250 copies said to exist and 111 or less (CGC census is sometimes inaccurately high due to resubmissions that are not removed from census) have walked thru CGC's doors since their inception. There are only 2 unrestored CGC copies that have graded higher than 6.0 and only 14 restored copies that have graded high than 7.0.That's a small amount compared to the 800,000 copies printed originally in 1939 and an even a smaller amount compared to the millions that want to own a copy within today's collector/investor base. The reason for the shortage of copies of this comic is primarily due to the World War II paper drive. Kids and families across the nation were encouraged to help America's effort in gathering resources to fight the Axis of Evil.
