Below you will find a guide straight from CGC. Now here is something to consider, there are only 312 copies of the TMNT #1 2nd print graded… But there are 800 plus copies of the TMNT #1 1st print graded. I believe the 2nd print has twice as many published (6K vs the 3K printed of the 1st print). So that’s a super low population in comparison to the 1st print which are graded. About 27% of the 1st prints are graded and 5% of the 2nd prints are graded. Plus there are only 25 other 2nd prints with an equal grade and 8 higher. Case condition – flawless, rests in a newer case. There are no cracks or any other damage. All four corner posts are intact and sealed. Please let me know if you have any questions. Personal note – I don’t really want to see this go. I understand everyone wants those 1st prints but I see second prints as becoming highly sought after because there are not too many graded and they are not as expensive. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
