article imageRare Superman comic book sells for more than $100,000

By Owen Weldon     Jun 17, 2013 in Lifestyle
A comic book that featured Superman's first appearance ever went undiscovered for more than 70 years in a Minnesota house, and it has sold for more than $100,000.
According to Redding, Stephen Fishler, the CEO of ComicConnect.com said that the person who placed the winning bid on the comic book was a hardcore golden age comic book collector. The winning bid came in on last Monday night, and the name of the buyer was not made public.
According to Calgary Herald, Fishler said that the buyer was looking for a lower-grade, unrestored copy of Superman's debut, and he was looking for several months. Such a copy would have cost more than a million dollars.
According to Longview-News-Journal, the comic book was found in a home's ceiling insulation.
After the man found it, he and his wife's aunt discussed the value of it and the back cover ended up being teared after he grabbed the it from the aunt and tossed it aside.
Eventually, the comic book was put up for auction.
