“To our many bidders, buyers, and consignors in the Fall Event Auction I offer a thank-you to all of you, from the bottom of my heart,” said Vincent Zurzolo, chief operating officer. “Without all of you, I would never be able to do what I love every single day.”
The world record–holding auction house will be writing millions of dollars in advance checks for their upcoming auctions at the upcoming New York Comic Con. “I have $3.9 million and a stack of checks. Bring your comics and original comic art for a future auction and I will pay you today — why wait?” asked Reynolds.
The company will be displaying highlights from their upcoming Winter Event Auction, including copies of Detective Comics #35 CGC 7.5, Fantastic Four #1 CGC 8.5, Captain America Comics #1 CGC 1.5, Batman #1 CGC 1.8 and many more. “As I’ll have many of my best consignments on display at the show, comic collectors should stop by booth #2636 and peruse a sample of the world’s most valuable comics and comic art,” Reynolds said. “Bring your consignments to my booth; leave with a check in hand.”
