February 26, 2009 § Leave a comment
Everyone has heard tales of the hidden relic found among boxes of comics or stacks of magazines well, something like that has turned up and is going on sale tomorrow at http://www.comicconnect.com !!! Here’s more:
Comic book expert Stephen Fishler says bidding for the comic book begins at $1 and is sure to go up, up and away. It originally cost 10 cents in 1938.
He says copies of Action Comics No. 1 in "fine" condition are worth about $126,000, but this one could sell for several times that. About 100 copies of the No. 1 edition are known to exist.
The owner, who was not identified, bought the sale magazine for 35 cents in 1950 and held onto it for 58 years. It will be on auction for two weeks beginning Friday.
Hmmm a new house or a copy of the very first appearance of Superman???…lets just say if I had MY choice, along with signing the check…I’d be signing divorce papers! Gosh if my entire collection is some day worth that much I’d be lucky…
Some people say (including my wife) "what the hell are you going to do with something like that?"…and I would answer "well I can’t read it cause that would drop its value…so I’d just put it in an air tight frame and hang it on the wall and…look at it! DUH"
Making copies of the Action Comics #1 cover and stuffing it with ASM #583 to ready it for EBay,
