Original Batman Comic Book Sells For $850,000.

I saw this story and could not believe  it . The Heritage Auctions did a story about a collector who paid $315,000 two years ago for  a near-mint copy of 1940′s Batman #1 and just sold it for a whopping $ 850,000 .











An investment partnership has paid a record price of $850,000 for a 1940 copy of the Batman #1 comic book, according to officials of Heritage Auctions (HA.com) of Dallas, Texas who arranged the private transaction between the investors and a collector. The comic book originally cost 10 cents when it was published 72 years ago.

“The collector paid $315,000 for it about two years ago, and that was the record at the time for a copy of Batman #1, one of the most important comic books in the hobby. The market for high-quality, classic comic books has really skyrocketed over the past few years,” said Ed Jaster, Vice President of Heritage Auctions.

The identities of the seller and the investors who purchased the comic book for $850,000 were not revealed.

I wish I had a time machine so I could go back in time to get me a few old comics . . . wow !

I'm a BIG Batman fan. Back in the day I would write scripts and get my friends together to make Batman movies. From real Batman suits to a wide collection of Batman stuff from over the years I have never have grown up when it comes to Batman. I go to Comic cons and dress up in full Batman (Nashville's Dark Knight) gear and hang out with fellow comic fans and take pictures. Hanging out with friends is always a blasty blast when they can find the time or when I can. I'm a big movie buff or at least a little buff lol. I love the extreme activities. White water rafting, playing paintball, just about anything I can get into. I have been in a few different kinds of Martial arts. Sometimes I go hunting on the family farm but its rare. When I lived in Bell Buckle I was on the BBVFD for about 5 years --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
