Wow, Hake’s has wowed me again. This time with a nearly mint looking Batman Bat Grenade which comes from the Craig Warren Collection and according to Hake’s:
4.5” long grenade with 13.5” bat wingspan on 11×12” card. Esquire Novelty Corp. ©1966 NPP Inc. Grenade shoots caps, which were inserted at top and fire on impact. Card features large image of Batman holding one of these grenades . Grenade is plastic with vinyl body sleeve and thin Vacuform plastic wings. Cap firing end is cast metal. Complete with sticker (which is often missing or incorrectly applied) correctly applied which has faint staining from glue as is the norm. O/w Mint on card. Card hanger hole is punched. .25” tear along top margin. St. warp with scattered handling wear and a 7.5” diagonal crease at lower left. Still displays VF. .
