Now here is every single one of the Legion's first appearances, beginning in Adventure Comics (where Superboy was the cover star). The first appearance in #247 is a Silver Age "Key," and one of the highly-prized and expensive comics of that era. In merely "Fine" condition it guides for $1800. A beat-up "Good" copy still goes for $600!
