    Description

    Detective Comics #8 Billy Wright Pedigree (DC, 1937) CGC VF- 7.5 Off-white pages. This shows you how early the Wright collection started: this book is one of the first 250 or so comics ever published, and pre-dated Action #1 by eight months, but when it came out, Billy Wright had already been buying DCs for 21 months! The classic cover art for this issue is credited to Creig Flessel (if the art looks familiar, it's probably because it was appropriated for the oddball Atomic Comics some eight years later). Overstreet 2015 VF 8.0 value = $9,625. CGC census 3/16: 2 in 7.5, 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.
