ComicConnect.com are auctioning off a CGC 8.5 Restored Copy of “Action Comics #1,” which ends on Tuesday, September 20 at 6:00pm ET.
The most important comic book in history, “Action Comics #1” stands as the introduction of the archetype of all other heroes to come as Superman transcends comics and pop culture as an icon of truth, justice, and the American way!
Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman is quite possibly the most recognizable fictional character in the world. The brainchild of two struggling sci-fi fans from the Rust Belt, the Man of Steel became an instant icon to Depression-era readers and transformed into a symbol of national spirit and spunk during the brutal days of WWII. Since then, he has endured as both a beloved character and an embodiment of hope and vigor, making this first appearance not just a piece of comics’ history, but of American history as well.
What sales pitch can make this comic more desirable? There is no more important, valuable, and sought-after book than the first appearance of Superman. Collectors dream of hitting the lottery so they can snap up their very own copy of this iconic publication that transcends comics to become one of the most treasured items in history. If you have the means to compete for this ground-zero grail, you must throw your hat into the ring. This CGC 8.5 restored copy has undergone a bang-up professional refurbishment, and looks pretty darn spiffy, with a presentation that has a natural and warm eye appeal that some restored comics lack. Any “Action Comics #1” would immediately assume the role of the centerpiece in even the greatest comic book collection, with only a handful of surviving copies around, in original or restored condition, and prices ever on the rise, take a chance on reeling in your very own piece of planetary history!
This CGC 8.5 Restored Copy of “Action Comics #1” is expected to sell for over US$3 million.
