A couple of days ago, we told you about David Gonzalez, the Minnesota man who found a copy of Action Comics #1 in the attic of a house he was remodeling.
Gonzalez put the comic up for auction and now he’s reaping the rewards.
The comic sold for $175,000.
The comic was in good condition for having been used as insulation for three-quarters of a century. It could have gone for more had a disagreement with his in-laws not created a tear in the back cover.
Experts say had the tear not been there, the comic could have gone for a quarter of a million dollars or more.
