A first issue of Marvel Comics’ 1977 Star Wars comic book series is currently being auctioned off by Nate D. Sanders Auctions.
It’s CGC graded at 9.6, which is pretty remarkable for a comic of this age.
Another selling point?
It’s signed by most of the cast of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2) have signed this classic comic book, which will likely fetch a decent price for a hardcore Star Wars comic book fan with a lot of disposable income.
Starting bid is a mere $15,000.
Here’s the auction description…
”Star Wars #1” comic book from 1977 with original cover, uniquely signed by six notables of the cast: Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), and Kenny Baker (R2-D2).
