That would be a lot of work and trickery for $300. Also, how easy, or hard, is it for the general public to get a blank DC/Marvel interior page?

I see this one has a copyright line against the right edge;

I could tell it had been in that frame a very very long time, probably 20-25 years.

It happens plenty. Not uncommon at all really.

I see the same art board was used for the next issue.

I wonder what the circle and rectangle shapes on the side are for.

Congrats on buying it, Carl. Those circular and rectangular hole punches aren't uncommon. Not sure who did them though, but I assume maybe someone in the editorial office. Perhaps they would place them in some sort of binder for the ditor to be able to flip through all the pages more easily. Just a guess though. I have plenty of pages like that.

Carl,

It's definitely real. It's not exactly a top level page, content wise, but as has been mentioned, it's still closer to $500 than to $300. Feel free to buy it, and when it's safely at home with you, let me know, and I'll give you the $500 for it. Oh, and I won't make any attempt to disparage or humiliate you because you "flipped it to me" for a quick profit. Let me know when you're ready.

Those holes are usually there to hold the art in place either on a light table or for a camera when they are shooting the positives during the pre-press production.

Great pickup! There's strong demand for OA from landmark '90s storylines such as Death of Superman and Knightfall. I reckon this action-packed page with Supes battling Doomsday could fetch upwards of $1k at auction.

I think most/all of my OA from the late-'80s onwards doesn't have a stamp on the back... I only recall seeing stamps on my '70s and earlier OA.

Yup I alerted the buyer. Bought at the full asking price. eBay will show no best offer was accepted so not spoiling anything. I thought the page might be worth $1100. So wrong was I.

Holy s...! Is 4k the current market rate for pages like this? 1.5k would have been my absolute highest guess... Unbelievable!

I had trouble keeping track of the offers. Seems a lot of folks have fond memories of this storyline.
