In this regard, I like what Beckett does for their baseball, football, etc.. annual price guides. If a card is too low in population to really gauge a value, they simply say no data is available due to scarcity, however they may add a footnote if a documented sale took place. They would never count it towards any list of top ten cards or whatever. It's considered an oddball item.

Yep.

Yup. That and the long-ago incorrect notation by overstreet as the first appearance.

Although also the extreme rarity, the cool eastman & laird work.

Nope. I'd go with gobbledy so I could sell it, buy a Hulk 181 with the profits and still have some left over.

New Adventure Comics #26 and #27 have ads for Action #1. #26 is pre-Action #1, #27 was released at the same time.

There's a 2.5 New Adventure #27 on CLink right now that I would guess will go for between $4K-$6K

And we don't see it getting the kind of fame and recognition that Gobbledygook 1 receives!

For most TMNT fans, this is a grail. not only because of the TMNT 1 ad but also because of the early work by Eastman and Laird. But the biggest reason is there were only 50 made.

Also, keep in mind this (along with Gobbledy #2) was the FIRST published book from Mirage Studios, the company that would create the TMNT that would lead to a worldwide pop culture phenomenon and the number #1 Copper Age book. That's some hefty history there. And while its no Marvel #1 or DC #1, etc. as far as first offerings from publishing houses, it still does have the full outside back cover ad for TMNT #1 (not just some small, inner blurb), features the first appearance of the Fugitoid which was a major character in the TMNT universe (and ties in heavily to early Turtles stories), plus only 50 were made, hand made. Until these last couple years, legit copies were near mythical, and with demand very high for the above reasons (and probably others), it only makes sense it's so highly valued.

If it doesn't have a cover price, was it intended for sale? If it wasn't intended for sale can we say it was distributed and/or published in the normal way? I love these little books but I think they are more early-career giveaways / promo pieces than published books. Any thoughts?
