The Single Comic Book Page That Sold For $660
It was just one page from a comic book, torn out. It was ungradeable, CGC gave it a NG classification.
But it still sold for $660 on eBay. 
It just happened to be the first appearance of The Joker from Batman #1, 1940.

WTF: Batman Themesong With Bat Sounds

Bats produce sounds that are not audible to human ears. First these ultrasounds were digitally reduced to frequencies that are audible. Then the different batsounds were assigned different keys on a keyboard.

On this keyboard - the only real Bat-Organ - Ulrich Seidel played the Batman Theme (Neal Hefti, 1966). The video clip was compiled by Sándor Seuntjens using footage from Batman (film, 1966), Batman (animated television series, 1992-95), and National Geographic (natgeowild.com).

Music arrangement: Ulrich Seidel, Erfurt, Germany.
Video compilation: Sándor Seuntjens, Brussels, Belgium.
Idea: Wolter Seuntjens, Erfurt, Germany
