    Description

    Detective Comics #38 Allentown pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. Robin makes his debut with this issue, creating a sensation among readers, and causing a flood of imitators that would last the duration of the Golden Age. This particular copy is incredible, and could possibly be the best in existence. Exhibiting deep colors, a perfect spine and edges, and a freshness that defines pedigrees, it's quite an awesome sight. Dust shadows on the back cover and a bindery chip are the only two defects that keep this book out of the 9.6 range. A truly amazing book that may not be available again for a long while. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $45,000.
