Item Description

NOBODY SELLS THIS ONE - GOOD LUCK FINDING ONE - SERIOUSLY. Highly-sought and considered by most as the absolute best Joker cover ever!  It shows Joker holding duel pistols at Batman and Robin in what is famously known as "the Harlequin Hoax" which is probably the best Joker story to date!  This is Detective Comic # 69 and was graded 4.5 by CGC.  You rarely if ever see this comic available on the open market as it is so coveted by collectors around the world.  This is also one of the greatest covers and stories of all comics and is a must-have!  This comic book is registered by CGC and its serial # is 1291205003.  THIS COMIC HAS BEEN WELL TAKEN CARE OF!   Last photo is just a fan rendition and is not part of this auction.  Shipped via Priority Mail with online signature delivery confirmation and insurance is $30 (comes with insurance).  Thanks for looking and check out my other auctions, especially if you are a sports or comics book fan. Also have CGC graded Detective Comics # 76 and #91 (both famous Joker covers) available to buy in my eBay Store.  Jerry was quoted in an interview in the book, Batman Cover to Cover and on page 41 (see last pic for interview) and this comic plus 70 and 71 are his favorite 3 books of all time that he did.  I will include the auctions catalog showcasing THIS comic that you are looking at now.  Picture # 6 shows my various comics available in my eBay store and are NOT a part of this auction but only meant to compliment the Detective Comics # 69.  Also pictured in the photos #8 amd #9 (but not a part of this auction) are drawings of the Batman and Joker dueling on Walking Dead # 109 blank variants that are original sketches; both are available in my eBay Store as well.  Only 35 unrestored/universal graded with a total of 43 graded by CGC in the entire world!
