What happens when you open a DC comic book and inside you find a Marvel comic. Well, you put it on eBay and expect to earn $1,2 million. That’s exactly what happened with this misprint of New Teen Titans #6 and Marvel-Two-In-One #74.
In the misprinted issue, which has been listed on eBay for a brain-shaking $1.2 million USD, the cover of DC’s New Teen Titans #6 has been accidentally placed onto the issue of Marvel-Two-In-One #74, both of which were printed in April of 1981. It just so happens that during the period Marvel Comics had been printing at Ronald’s Printing in Canada before DC Comics followed along.
The rare comic has been encapsulated by CGC with a mid-range 7.5 grade who also stated that only three such books exist in circulation at present.
“DC decided that higher-quality printing (from 65dpi to 120 dpi) was possible, given that sales of the New Teen Titans were doing well in 1980-81. Bob Spivak, the representative from Ronald’s Printing convinced them that they could achieve far greater margins
on a different press. So they shifted to using the offset presses at Ronald’s Printing out of Canada, mainly because Ronald’s M1000-B offset press could produce 60,000 16-page sections an hour. And they could distribute through Diamond Distribution, a source that would be challenged as the “direct” editions became more prominent in sales.”
