What a February it has been. 2 Comics and over $2 million realized. Yes, you heard it correct. What recession? Earlier this month and Action Comics #1 sold for $1 million and now, on February 25th, a CGC 8.0 copy of Detective Comics #27, the first Batman, sold for $1,075,000.00 – truly amazing.
The comic book sold at Heritage Auctions in Dallas and you can view a scan of the comic book below. This is a beautiful copy. Speaking of condition, what does a little restoration do to a comic book even if the apparent grade is higher? Well, a Detective #27 in CGC 8.5 apparent grade with restoration sold for 66,920.00 – quite a difference.
