Initial Highlights from the CBCS Census- Action Comics #1 and Detective Comics #27

The CBCS Census just opened up. This is the first of many posts as I go through the data. I started, as you'd expect I would, with the big two. Here's what I learned about those books.

  • Action Comics #1 has four total copies. 3 are restored at 9.4, 9.0 and 2.0. There is a blue label 0.3 (coverless.)
  • The biggest news for me was that the Detective Comics #27 Rockford Copy switched companies. It used to be a CGC 6.0. It's now in a CBCS 6.0 holder. This is easily the most valuable CBCS book. Here are the grader's notes:
    • light creases & soiling left back cover
    • wear at spine corners & staples
    • tiny vertical tear bottom staple front cover
    • vertical crease middle spine breaks color
    • 3 tape stains on spine. Tape stain right edge pages 5-7
    • 1.5" corner crease bottom right front cover breaks color
  • Detective Comics overall, has 11 copies. 6 are restored. Other than the Rockford copy there's a CBCS 3.0 and an 0.5 and two 0.1s. The six restored copies include 3 9.6s, 1 6.5, 1 4.5 and 1 0.1.
