Results of Event Auction #50: Superman #1 Sets New Record

ComicConnect’s Fiftieth Event Auction ended last week reporting over $8 million in sales led by a record for Superman #1 CGC 4.0 at $815,000. Event Auction #50 featured scores of investment-quality Silver Age keys, scarcities, classic covers, and thousands of bidders who placed tens of thousands of bids.

“Thank you to everyone who participated,” said Vincent Zurzolo, co-founder of the auction house. “My staff and I are eternally grateful to be able to work doing what we love for the true fans and collectors in the hobby.”
