Cut the white star in a piece of paper or white fabric that you may have at home (a hold t-shirt that you don't wear anymore) and glue it in the chest of the t-shirt :)

How much would a 15 year old captain america comic be worth?
I AM EDITING MY ANSWER, but leaving the original below the dotted line.
"Captain America"s from 1995 are worth essentially nothing. I misstated below - that was for a *1986* issue, which would be circa 25 years old, not 15. Apologies.
The only Captain America issue I've found that's from that time with a cover price of $1.25 is Annual #8. It has Wolverine on the cover. *IF* it's in Mint condition, it could be worth up to $38.
If that's not the issue you have you probably have one from circa 1992-94, and those are listed around $2.50 - essentially worthless. You could find those in a dealer's 25 cent bin.
For future reference, rather than telling the price on the comic just say what issue # it is (and the exact month/year it was published would be good too). It's a lot easier to search that way.
Where is a good place to start reading the Captain America comics?
Captain America just got a new #1 this week. It was my first time reading Captain America and I had no problem with it. Still I heard Brubaker did an awesome job on the last volume, so I'll get around to reading that when I get a chance.
I want to start reading Captain America comics. Can anyone tell me a good place to start?
Definitely check out Avengers Disassembled, which led to the downfall of the Avengers. New Avengers springs up before the Civil War arc and Captain America: Winter Soldier Vol. 1 & 2. They are all written and drawn beautifully. Also, it is available in Hardcover and Paperback form. The story is quite modern and it leads to the death of the original Captain America, Civil War and New Captain America story arcs.
