Detective Comics #27 Page 3 Proof (1939)....
This item comes from the collection of Mario J. Sacripante of New York. He tells the story as follows:
"The origin of my Bob Kane (originally Bob Kahn) collection dates back to 1975 when I had literally found it in the garbage in an old steamer trunk not more than twenty-five feet from my front door in Rego Park, Queens. "One man's trash is another man's treasure" as the saying goes, but at the time I was actually afraid to open the trunk, not knowing what I would find.
I knew what it was that I had found, as I had been around antiques and collectibles all my life and had a cousin in the flea market business at the time. Bob Kane had lived next door (way before I moved there), and I learned later that my friend's father actually knew Kane when he had lived in the building."
