Item Description

One of the most famous covers of Batman!  You are looking at Detective Comics # 51 which came out May 1941.  This is a very early Batman appearance and the cover is unbelievably amazing as Batman swoops in to stop a killer who has Robin held in bondage.  Graded a 3.5 by CGC, there are only 27 graded copies higher!  27 in the entire world - that's it!  Shows you how rare Detective Comics are in comparison to Hulk #181 (8980 graded copies) or The Walking Dead #1 (2606 graded copies) or even Amazing Fantasy # 15 (which has 2622 graded copies); a lot more than people might think.  Now compare that to these Golden Age - where is the true value, people?  Only 39 graded copies of this Detective Comics # 51 exist.  And Batman is probably the most popular comic icon out there at this time.  Shipping with Priority tracking and insurance is $16.  Below is the CGC population report for your review (as of 25 Dec 2016):
