A man in Elbow Lake, Minn., David Gonzalez, 34, found a copy of Action Comics #1 in the old newspapers insulating a wall of a house he was renovating. It was a startling discovery, and fortunately, he knew immediately he had found something valuable. Although the comic wasn’t in great condition, reaching only a 1.5 on the CGC scale, it is still worth a mint.
Mr. Gonzalez only paid $10,100 for the house, but the comic is already at $137,000 on comic connect with over two weeks left to bid.
