I need to find a copy of Double Comics that contains both. Then that will settle it for me.

"Hot Fudge" sound like the name of a villain that would have been used in Fighting American  lol

Or the Tick.  

American Maid and Hot Fudge are battling it out.

Bat 1 2.0 brittle brought $96k in Heritage.  Cap 1 3.5 off white to white brought $104k

Next auction it may go the other way . . .

I was a little surprised by the difference given the Batman 1 had the page quality issue and not the best eye appeal and the Captain America had really nice eye appeal.

Gator had said above he thought a Bat 1 2.5 = Cap 1 3.0. Given the page quality issue on the Bat 1 you just pointed out, it seems more like a Bat 1.5 w normal page quality  = a Cap 3.5.

At least this week.

And it could be that some of the Cap 1 fervor went instead toward the high grade MMMCs

I think there is enough public sales data recently to say these 2 have separated and that Bats 1 is clearly the ppp victor ?

Some more data points in the other direction...

cap 1 0.5 sold for $30k about a month ago on clink. 

bat 1 0.5 just hammered last night on heritage for $22k

A bit surprised at the results but I guess anything can happen

Let's compare the 2 copies shall we ? Not all 0.5s are created equal. And the Cap1 buyer likely has those missing wraps.

I hope you find them (thumbsu Congrats on the purchase. Most likely the nicest 0.5 out there. ^^

Throw one more book in the mix, Superman 1.  Seems like the pricing order would be

Superman 1

Batman 1

Captain America 1

Which surprises me.  I know Sup 1 is the scarcest of the three, but its mostly reprints.  Before the hate mail comes in, please know I’m the insufficiently_thoughtful_person who sold his 5 years ago for what they were then going for:  not much.

Did NOT know about the Bats 1 0.5.!   I wouldn’t have made my post if I did.  That seems like a steal !  I also would say that this  0.5 Cap 1 is the best one out there that I’ve seen ( the other one became a qualified 4.0 I believe )

Supe 1 0.5 (coverless) sold for  $22,000 in Sept.

Take the front cover off that Bat 1 0.5 and you're looking at a lot less $

Supes 1 Certainly less available than the other two but its census has picked up quite a bit in the last year or so more than doubling Action 1s and Tec 27 for that thsts worth

Data remains mixed grade to grade.

I currently give the SLIGHT edge to Batman 1, but could easily flip back again with the consistent and relentless available copies of Batman 1 and copies of Cap 1 drying up again.

Content and cover edge still to Cap 1 by a nautical mile.

I was awaiting the outcome of the current Heritage auction to make my choice, and that's why I give the nod to Bat 1.  I'm a Timely fan.  My last pickup was a Cap 3.  I badly wanted Cap 1 to win this fight, but it just didn't.  Not in the Heritage duel between the two.  Although I agree that Cap 1's cover wins by a nautical mile, I can't agree about the book content.  I put them at even.  Long term, I think the Batman movies have shown resiliency thru a parade of actors.  It even survived Michael Keaton.   Batman movies will keep coming, and new Batman fans will be generated with each new movie. The resiliency of Captain America movies is untested.  Chris Evans is great, and I hope he never leaves.   But he will at some point, and then the question is whether or not the next guy will meet acceptance.  I'd like to think yes, because then just like Batman, we will continue to grow new enthusiasts.

p.s.  I just put up the :takeit: emoji to Filter81's Bat 1 this morning
