    If it's the reprint of the first appearance of Superman you're talking about in Action Comics it depends on when the reprint was issued. There was one printed in 1976 which asks just under a hundred for a near mint copy. The 1983 and 1987 and 1988 copies (I have an '88) are priced the same at about 80 for a near mint copy. the 1990 and 1992 and 1993 copies are around 64 for a near mint and the 1998 copy is around 32. You can see where the pricing is here:

    These prices are retail for you to buy and in dollars.
