I was just scanning eBay and saw this auction:

 

Captain America #1 -- cover only

 

Looks like it will be a fun one to watch! (I am in no way affiliated with this auction.) Within the first hour of its listing, it already leapt up from a $200 starting bid to more than $1,220. Any predictions where it will end?

It has already more than doubled in the approximately 15 minutes since I posted the first message.

 

The seller seems to be somebody who mostly sells old bottles, and the listing says he found it at an estate sale. I wonder what issue of Captain Marvel it is "loosely married" to? Hard to tell from the pictures. (Kinda funny how keyword-spammy his listing is.)

Now that's a beautiful looking complete and intact cover. Someone who has a complete coverless copy would go all in on this for sure. I know I would.

Anyone else think the spine interior could be reinforced? It looks much whiter than the rest of the cover.

Sounded kinda fishy with his very expressive use of "Nice!" but he stays consistent in all his posts with bottles and comics. Heck of a find.

Coverless complete copies aren't easy to find.

Considering a CGC slabbed, purple label 0.5 recently sold for about $16,000...

 

I can only imagine how high this will go. It's already over 4K with 6 days, 21 hours left.

That was my first through. Definitely something going on there.

In my ill-informed opinion it looks like the cover has been completely split and then glued back together.

Looks that way to me, too.

Yeah, I would definitely want to communicate with the seller before bidding on this one.

I just looked at it, enlarged, on a 70" monitor. I don't see this. Someone would have to be some kind of an expert gluer to get it that straight and even, nevermind that you can't actually see any glue, but instead can see the seam of the two halves of the cover. And the seller has provide multiple close up pictures for me not to get the idea he is trying to hide anything. My 2 cents.
