Heritage August 2017 Results

Sorry it took a little while, but I'm going to take a quick look at the results from the recent Heritage Signature auction.

Original Art

It can't go without mention, the Crumb art from the Graham Nash collection sold for a ton of money. Definitely not my area of expertise, but hey, it deserves a mention.

Fred Ray Superman #12 Cover Original Art

$77,000 seems like a bargain to me. There are more than 50 pieces that have sold for more than that at Heritage alone. I mean… c'mom!


I'm going to start by patting myself on the back. When I previewed these books I predicted that both the 9.0 and the 9.2 copies of Four Color #386 would sell for more than the $3500 a 9.2 got on eBay in December 2016. This was supposed to illustrate the old adage that "you get what you pay for." Boy, did I turn out to be a smart guy on that call. The 9.0 sold for $4900. The 9.2? $13,000.

I'll just leave that hanging out there for you all to chew over.

Magik Woo's Marvels

Now that I'm done patting myself on the back, let's look at the most interesting comics in the auction.

The Amazing Spider-Man #14 (Marvel, 1964) CBCS NM/MT 9.8

I told you this book was sweet. Someone else thought it was sweet to the tune of $71,700. This is a strong result.

The Amazing Spider-Man #5 (Marvel, 1963) CBCS NM+ 9.6

Someone paid a CGC 9.4 price for this book. "Buy the book not the label," in full effect here. It's still a gorgeous copy.

Batman #608 Retailer Incentive Edition – Signature Series CGC 9.8

This book gets 5 grand, like clockwork.

That's it for this recap. I'll rebound quickly with a preview of the upcoming ComicConnect auction which has a ton of great material.
