Vincent Zurzolo – who holds six Guinness World Records for the most expensive comics and related collectibles ever bought or sold – will manage the auction at which ends on December 16th.

If only I had a time machine. I would go back in time and buy multiple copies of this first issue when it first came out. And I would make sure each copy is nicely preserved. But I wouldn’t sell them.
Yeah I just finished watching Back to the Future part II.
Lol! 😀
