ComicConnect June Auction to Feature Third Action Comics #1

In March, ComicConnect brought to market an Action Comics #1, CGC 6.0. The auction made global headline news. Consequently, a second Action Comics #1, CGC 1.8, was uncovered and consigned to ComicConnect, and sold in their following Event Auction on May 1st. And now, a third Action Comics #1 will be brought to market, graded a CGC 2.5 with white pages, and will be open for bids when the next ComicConnect Event Auction begins on Friday, June 5th.

Action Comics #1

The Action Comics #1 CGC 2.5 copy comes from the State of Washington. The consignor's mother, who passed away fourteen years ago, told her son she remembered owning it ever since she was a little girl in grade school. By the time she was in high school, she began to recognize that the first Superman appearance was something of significance, and began to preserve the comic book for safe keeping. Her son recalls first seeing it when she showed it to him when he was a freshman in high school, back in 1984. His mother impressed upon him that it was something of value. In 1989, they moved it to a bank security box, and as the only child, he inherited the comic a few years later after she died. More recently, he brought the comic to a comic book convention, and felt intimidated by the feeding frenzy of comic dealers who sought to purchase the comic from him. He ultimately decided to consign the comic book to the most experienced name in Action Comics #1,, and to let the market decide upon the value of the comic.
