Got a question for you Batman collector's.  This book just auctioned on ebay for $1,375.  OPG lists it at around $150-200 in this condition, and does not single it out as a special issue.  What's going on with this book, besides the 1st appearance of the Human Firefly?  Is it really a 7x guide book?

I can explain it. Some people are dumb.

Just seems Bat and Tec collectors want this to fill the run. Glad I have mine because I wouldn’t pay that but some others might.

To answer your question, guide is wrong. Guide isn’t right on a lot of books, granted that’s mainly bigger keys, but it is still first firefly. We got a version in the Gotham Show 🤷‍♂️. If anyone just did a quick eBay search you would see several recent legitimate sales would support this raw copy’s final price. I’d say this copy is around a 4.0-4.5, so $1375 makes sense.

Some doofus is buying up all the Tec180s, so I only have eleven copies, including three from bon vivant, Harley Yee.  Just got delivered a few minutes ago.  Without ringing the doorbell, the FedEx guy shot put the box over our ten foot gate, despite the box being marked fragile.  Harley did a great job of packing.

Some doofus also has 11 168's

I absolutely love Detective 180. Haven't pulled the trigger on one yet, but I can't imagine it'll be long until I do...
