I collect but my oldest comics aren't worth as much, although I do have an Amazing Spiderman #4 which is in really great shape. Probably graded a 7. I feel that the CGC grading and standard of putting these comics in a sealed frame sort of takes away from true collectors like myself. They say once CGC seals a comic (like the Superman one shown above), you can never open it again or it voids the grading they give it. This practice to me takes away from what I believe collecting comics is all about, which is being able to read and enjoy them. There's a really amazing feeling to actually feel and touch, and even the smell of comics from the 1950s and 60s, just brings back a nostalgia from that era.

I couldn't agree more. My oldest comic is Fantastic Four #2, but it's been loved to death. Probably would get a CGC rating of -5.

"Neither the name of the buyer nor seller was disclosed."

I believe the seller to be Nicholas Cage, the actor. He has been a long time comic book collector and has been rumored to have a collection worth millions. This article states how he had an Action Comics #1 stolen and it was just recently found in August of this year.

Interesting! Sounds like it could be yet another sequel to the National Treasure movies.


2.16 million for a comic book? Someone has way to much money and very few brains.
