    Detective Comics #46 Central Valley Pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Very few copies of any issue from Batman's first three years have made it to 9.6. As of this writing, the total number of 9.6 copies certified of issues #27-68 is seven. So we expect this to be fought over vehemently come the auction. The Batman and Robin cover is by Bob Kane, and the issue is notable for the death of one of the earliest Bat-villains, Hugo Strange. Overstreet 2019 NM- 9.2 value = $6,300. CGC census 8/19: 1 in 9.6, none higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 763803009 and purchase grader's notes if available.
