Heritage Auctions has just concluded its Hollywood & Entertainment Signature Auction #7245, where a rare George Reeves Superman costume, incomplete and with moth holes, has sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
For years the George Reeves Superman suit, which experts believe dates to the show’s 1954-58 run in color, had a prominent place in collector John Azarian’s home. This suit just flew to a new owner for $350,000!
