Would you purchase this unrestored Superman comic book for US$400,000? I don’t know any who would make the purchase, specially with worldwide recession BUT for the ultra-rich-collector he doesn’t see it as an expense. No, no, no… he would probably see this as US$1 Million in say 2-3 years time. It’s risky… but some are born to jab risk over and over again.
CNN reports that “After being hidden away for years, a copy of the original “Superman and Friends” comic book will make a comeback — at a price of about $400,000, a comic expert said Thursday.” It’s Comics No. 1, said Stephen Fishler, owner of Comic Connect, and thru a bidding process comic colectors will surely, surely take a bite.
And did you know that someone was actually willing to trade in his Ferrari to get Comic #1? Just how important is comic 1. It’s the one that started it all. And sad to say there are a few of it going around. Or this may probably be… the only ONE! The ONE.
