DETECTIVE COMICS (1937) #438 Very Good Comics Book

Please note: this is only one of the 200,000+ back issues that we list on eBay each day! While we are also continually listing a very large number of special auctions each week, the preponderance of our 200,000 daily listings are available only via our eBay store. That's because most of our listings in our eBay store are priced at well under $3 per item, which is too inexpensive to justify an individual auction. Because of the lower listing cost in eBay stores, however, we can offer you thousands of items in our wonderful store at prices as low as 75 cents each! Please enjoy shopping through the single largest selection of comics available from any one vendor, on all of eBay!

The other great news about our eBay store is that you can not only shop through a huge selection of older issues at extremely low prices, but that you can also combine an unlimited number of issues in a single order for only $1.95 shipping in the USA, and $9.50 shipping for unlimited International orders. While the same combining of items together at a single shipping cost is also true for our auctions (the more auctions you win, the more you save in combined shipping!), the higher listing fees for auctions (and the extremely low starting bids...) require us to charge a flat $4.05 shipping for domestic auction shipments, and $9.50 for International auction

A couple more notes about how we run our business. First, you need to be aware that the cover photo of the item shown in this auction is strictly for references purposes, and is not a scan of the actual item. We sell well over one million back issues a year, and thus have a huge library of past scans that we utilize to illustrate the books that we are selling. Were we to try and scan again every single item that we are listing on eBay each day, we'd simply go broke. While the cover scan we provide gives you only a representation of what your book should look like, below we have listed a very detailed written description of our grading standards for this particular book. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the grading on any issue we send you, just e-mail us, and we'll arrange for a full refund and/or a replacement. Our goal is to make you happy, so if you think t's any sort of a problem, just let us know and we'll do our best to bring a smile back to your face.

The second issue of which you need to be aware is that sometimes, very rarely, we don't actually have in stock the item that we're auctioning. While that may sound ridiculous at first glance, the reality is that our auctions are created by uploads from our master database, and sometimes the inventory data in our computer is simply wrong. When we are entering into inventory over 30,000 back issues per week, manual entry errors are sometimes made (such as #7 being entered, when the item is actually #70). Our policy in those rare instances when an out-of-stock occurs (less than 1 out of 1,000 issues ordered) is to either upgrade you to the same issue in a higher grade for free, or to refund 100 % of your money. In addition, if we completely out-of-stock an item that you've ordered we'll also provide you with a bonus credit memo for the entire cost of the item which was out-of-stock (with a minimum credit issued to you of $5) which you can utilize to purchase any other item in our eBay store. We'll also provide you with completely free shipping on that credit memo order, so you are not out of pocket one cent as a result of our error. Quite frankly, t's no way that we can keep an inventory system as huge as ours perfect at all times, but we can make darn sure that we compensate you for your inconvenience, if you are one of the unfortunate few who doesn't get the book that they ordered.

The third important fact that you need to know about Mile High Comics is that we're closed on the weekends, and on most major holidays. We ship all eBay orders Monday-Friday, and with the exception of orde...
