Superman, Batman, and Robin star on the Jack Burnley baseball cover and inside, and the Sandman begins a run. Johnny Thunder makes his last appearance in the title. Creig Flessel, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson art. Note that this copy originally hailed from the collection of Eldon Hamann, as evidenced by the "Eldon" written on the front cover. Many lovely copies have come from this collection, which began appearing in the hobby during the mid-1970s. Overstreet 2018 FN 6.0 value = $1,200.
