I originally purchased this very comic book in 1986. Well,
actually, my mom purchased it for me as a birthday present.
She purchased it from The Collectors Slave, which was based
out in Canada. At the time of purchase, it was appraised at
VF/NM, and she purchased it for $400.00 US.
A few weeks ago, someone on eBay sold a Richie Rich #1 for
$3065.00 US. It was rated by Comics Guaranty, LLC as an 8.5
VF+, off-white pages. The Overstreet Price Guide values a
comic book with that rating at around $1600.00 US. So I
thought why not pull my copy out and submit it to CGC for an
About two weeks later, the book came back in the exact same
shape I sent it. It too was rated a 8.5. Fantastic!!! :)

book is among eight of the best graded CGC book they know of.
The photos you see below is MY copy of the comic book. The
front and back cover scans are un-touched, so what you see is
really what's there. If you're looking for even larger images,
let me know.
Some of the images are kind of strange... I was playing
around with Adobe Photoshop a bit, and a couple of the filters
came out pretty cool.
