    Description

    Detective Comics #2 (DC, 1937) CGC VG 4.0 Cream to off-white pages. Even harder to find than the #1, this issue is considered "rare" by Overstreet, and the Guide doesn't even bother listing a grade value above that for VF 8.0. The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books goes further, rating the issue "very rare", and we've offered just three copies of #2 over the past six years. It's a great example of why Creig Flessel covers are so prized among the early DCs. Inside Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster contributed their talents more than a year before Action #1 came out. Overstreet 2007 VG 4.0 value = $5,000. CGC census 1/08: 1 in 4.0, 3 higher.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
