I need everyone's combined expertise here.
While I hate bringing it to everyone's attention at the risk of being intentionally outbid, particularly because I'm still reeling from someone trying to stop me winning the Superman And The Great Cleveland Fire giveaway, which went for the most OBSCENE amount for a brittle tatty four page, one sheet, foldover, I HAVE to know if this Detective 27 is another scam. We've all seen plenty of those lately.
SOMEONE on here must know.
It looks genuine, but then again, it could easily be a scam.
Guys, PLEASE find out, but if it's real, PLEASE let me get it, as it's really low grade, and is the only type of copy I'll ever be able to buy.

=====================================

Sells a lot of private auctions (or adult material).

=====================================

Auction is private, expect to be shilled.

=====================================

Only ships to the US.

=====================================

Only takes money orders/checks.
No credit cards/paypal.

=====================================

I'd be very careful.
Have someone you can trust look at the comic in person in/near WISCONSIN RAPIDS Milwaukee.
Have them pick it up for you too and mail it FedEx International.
Good Luck!

Also the edges of the scans are cropped, so expect the book to look worse and don't be surprised if there are restro/trim/married cover-insides issues.

Man I'd be scared to death buying this off eBay raw.

None of his viewable past auctions were for comics (that I can find). He has a few others up for auction now but nothing before 1969.

He seems to specialize in sports cards and sports collectibles. He might have received a small collection in trade for something. I would request an uncropped pic. He didnít crop the photos on his other books like he did this one. Makes me wonder what is up with that.

Edit

You may want to hit up the Sports Card forum to see if any of them know the guy.

Please can anyone tell me if there's anyone at all on these boards from Milwaukee ???
Or anyone willing to take the money, go in person to collect the comic, and verify it's real before handing the cash over ???
If it is real, they'd be performing the greatest help EVER as far as finishing my DC collection (next to Metarog of course).
If it's real, and it certainly looks tatty, then I can't imagine anyone paying more than I would, not for SUCH a low grade. But I don't trust it. So PLEASE is there anyone willing to volunteer ???

Different people.

I put a small watch bid on it.

Boy!

I bid on a Detective 27 and a Marvel 1 within a month!

Action 1 is next!

Book looks to good to be true....seller is describing the book as FAIR, colours are way to bright/fresh for a 65-year old book in FAIR grade.



Anyone on the level selling this holy grail of holy grails will have this book slabbed or show a whole bunch of scans, not some cropped tiny little thing that could have been lifted from anywhere...

don't walk away from this, RUN away....

I just sent him a message as follows...

"Hello.
I've been really looking for a beat up affordable Detective 27. I collect DCs and I only need forty four to complete. I know where there are lots of copies of this book but they're all more expensive than I'd pay. This copy looks like the right one for me. The Overstreet Comic Price Guide lists the "fair "price at $16,000, which is half of the "good" price, which is $31000.
I'm willing to apy the sixteen thousand, maybe slightly more. If I win it at the genuine market price (and I'm very serious about doing so unless someone wants to pay silly money) then I'd like to send someone in person to collect it and pay you the money in cash.
May I please see a full scan of it, showing all the edges.
Thankyou.
Ian Levine"

As long as someone off these boards is willing to help me, it might work out. I don't see how anyone could pull a scam if someone actually goes round to see the comic and pays in cash. The problem is that it would have to be someone off these boards, so they could check it's not some forgery, or coverless with a xerox cover, or one of the thousand other possible problems that could arise.
But low grade I welcome - this does sound like the copy for me - IF it's on the level.

It could, of course, be a Treasury Limited Edition reprint with the outer cover removed. It would then look like this.
