Donald Duck 222 – Closet Comic Book Gold

Our first installment of closet comic book gold comes from a very unlikely place, the world of Whitman Disney comic books!

One of the “grails” for Disney and Donald Duck collectors is issue #222. Many of you remember the packs of Whitman comic books found in grocery stores that were abused and overlooked. Now, Donald Duck 222 had risen from the racks to be worth a small fortune. The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide lists the book for $310 in NM 9.2 condition. The latest results I’ve seen have it selling for about $260-$330 over the last few years.

Take a good look at the cover scan below and keep your eyes out for this hidden treasure!

  1. Hey Sean:

    Interesting idea, this closet comic book series. On the Donald duck comic. Do you know what year it was printed? At 40 cents per issue, I am guessing late ’70s or early ’80s.

    Can’t wait to see more closet comics.
