Back in 2011, the best condition copy of Archie #1 sold for a record $167,300. It became the highest priced, non-super hero comic of all time. That copy was graded by the Comics Guaranty Company (CGC) an 8.5. Now a second copy of Archie #1 with a CGC grade of 8.0 is hitting the auction block. The current offering is very comparable in appearance to the record-breaking copy, and it is the highest-graded restored copy CGC has certified to date. The issue currently ranks #20 on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics, and we continue to recommend that you go after it whenever offered, in any grade!

We understand that bidding's not for everyone--but here's where the fun part comes in: Take your best guess on how much money you think this comic will sell for. The fan with the closest guess will win a signed Archie book! Just fill out the survey below to be entered in! 

Bidding began on April 25, 2013, the final auction ends on May 16, 2013.
