Imagine you had a time machine and could go back to the late 1930’s in search of comic books that would later be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. What titles would you purchase? Marvel Comics #1? Green Lantern #1? All-Select #1? Captain America #1?
It’s fun to dream, but like many things, truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction. The Denver Pedigree Comic Book Collection is such a case. A woman in Denver had the “crystal ball” thinking that led her to purchase only #1 issues of comic books from the years 1938-1944. Talk about an investor!
The Denver collection only contained 153 comics. It contains mostly superhero and adventure comics. They were all stored for posterity, not kept as a “reader” collection, leading to amazing condition. Most of the collection is considered the best preserved comic books in existence. The priced realized on these books are in the stratosphere, with a Marvel Comics #1 CGC 8.5 selling for $155,350.00 in February 2009 at Heritage Auctions.
