  • 40-page printer's proof of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (1984)
  • A printer's proof is a sample that is printed to examine the correctness of the issue before printing the entire run
  • This one-of-a-kind, historical proof was found in a small print shop in Biddeford, Maine a few years after the publication of issue #1, after the Turtles had already exploded in popularity
  • The men who found it traded it to Downeast Comics which operated between the years of 1986 - 1994, in Brunswick, Maine
  • The owner paid for the proof with store stock and held onto it before auctioning it on Comic Link in 2020 for $12,472 with 77 bids

  • 🏅 #2 on the Hot 10
  • 1st appearance and origin of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo
  • 1st appearance of Splinter, the Turtles' mentor
  • 1st appearance and death of the Shredder
  • A 9.2 sold this week on Heritage for $28,800 destroying the November $11,500 record sale
  • Think about that. 57 days and one sale later, the value increased $17,000!
  • Now I’m sure you’re saying to yourself, “oh that’s poppycock!”
  • Well no, actually, it's not poppycock!
  • It’s not a fluke that just happened in this grade either
  • In December, a 9.4 sold for $36,000. The previous record was $17,000 from July
  • Each time one of these graded Turtles #1s sell...it throws all of the pricing logic out of whack
  • Right now, the 8.5, 8.0 and 7.0 high sales are greater than the 9.0 high
  • The 9.0 sold in July and the 8.5, 8.0 and 7.0 sold between August and December so this is all happening in a very short amount of time where the book doubles in value
  • TMNT #1 will take some time to self-correct since it was obviously undervalued but what else can you expect from the biggest key of the Copper Age that had an initial print run of 3,000 copies?
  • Chances are good that the next 9.8 sale will blow way past the $100k milestone mark for the first time
