How about $1500 for a 9.4 Charlton #1?

Just kidding - good luck on the search. 

I looked for one for 35 years and the best I found was a 5.5

I can see why.  All last ten copies in all grades were sold in last 6 months.

Surprisingly not many books on the census...

Last summer, I found Scooby Doo #1 (Gold Key) at the antique mall. I offered it for $50. It was sold quickly. Eventually I called my dealer about it and he immediately offered me $325 for VG copy.

All #1 copies in any grade in MCS were sold out instantly. One left at 7.0 is currently on eBay except two in crabby condition. I see why again!

Thank you! I do have interest in the Charlton #1 Cgc 9.4 of course closer to current Gpa. I'll send you a pm.

35 years is a long time to look for a book. The longest I ever looked for a specific book was 15 years before finally finding a copy and it ended up being a Cgc 1.5 I was still very happy and fortunate to have added it to my collection.

Scooby Doo #1 is a tough book to find period but in high grade it is next to impossible to locate due to there only being a handful of high grade copies in existence!

Yes there has been a lot going on with this book recently.

Three to four times a week I am now being asked for it.

I'm not sure what is going on but my guess is that it could be a mixture of things. With Scooby Doo being one of the most recognized and famous cartoon characters in the world along with this book being very tough to find could possibly have caused collectors/dealers to take notice that this book is much more significant than initially realized, plus this comic is almost 50 years old now, very hard for me to imagine that!

I have heard several different people say this over the years but didn't really take what they were saying too seriously until recently.

That must have been a surprise and very cool finding a Scooby Doo #1 in an antique mall, and yes I agree that whenever this book pops up for sale it doesn't last for too long.

I have seen many Disney, Dell, Harvey, Classic Illustrated and late bronze to modern comic books but I saw it in the glass booth. I wouldn't pass it so I am glad that I did. That was my only third time in last six years. It becomes impossible to be found anywhere for less.

One of my favorite books (I grew up with Scooby and the gang).  I have three copies but no 9.4.  Two at 6.5 and one at 3.5.  And one Charlton #1 at 9.0.  

Good luck on the quest.

No problem and thanks. Yes, seems like quite a few people were on the same page as you (including myself at one time) not realizing how sought after this book truly is!

I just wish I would have taken notice sooner.

Hi so I am looking at a collection this week someone had called me today. So I decided to do. A search had no idea that scooby doo was so collectible 

...

He supposedly has the 1970 gold key run #1 and up . He says they are nice. So this could be interesting now. I see him next weekend.. if anyone is looking including you sir any other issues on the run let me know. I may have it in my hands by next weekend. Cheers

Yes I agree it is a very tough book to pass on especially being that it is now next to impossible to find in almost any condition. The last several comic book conventions that I've been to didn't have a single copy for sale, raw or graded that I was aware of. Ebay will have a couple of listings every now and then but they usually sell rather fast.
