Event Auction #50 has some of the most desirable Golden and Silver Age keys in the market and one of ComicConnect’s founders, Vincent Zurzolo, agreed to point out a few of his favorite books from the auction. Naturally, they include a few of the first and earliest appearances of some of the most iconic heroes in the hobby, and a surprise or two.
From the Golden Age, Vincent went straight to the Batman #1 CGC 4.5. “Any major investment collectible portfolio has at least one copy of this incredibly important book,” he explained. “If you’ve been on the fence, this is your opportunity to add a cornerstone to your collection.”
In addition, he said that Wonder Woman collectors may opt for a copy of Sensation Comics #1 CGC 6.0, featuring the Amazing Amazon’s first cover appearance as well as a copy of Wonder Woman #6 CGC 6.5, with the debut of the Cheetah. Rounding out the gold, one of the most coveted covers on a nice copy of Punch Comics #12 CGC 5.5. “There is never a wasted moment when you’ve got a copy of Punch #12 in your hands. It’s one of the purest examples of Golden Age crime comics. No wonder parents went nuts in the fifties!”
For collectors catching up on their Silver Age portfolio, look no further than the Incredible Hulk #1 CGC 7.5. “The Green Goliath has held a special place in my heart ever since I watched the TV show in the late 70s when I was a kid,” Vincent said. This is another Marvel key where values seemingly have no ceiling so if you need a copy, get one now, if you have one, get another. Hulk #1 is a can’t miss.
Vincent wrapped up his favorites with the Brave and the Bold #28 CGC 8.5, the first appearance of the Justice League, Batman #181 CGC 9.0 featuring Poison Ivy’s debut, and finally the first Supergirl in Action Comics #252 CGC 6.5. “These are all no-brainers and just all-around great books,” Vincent concluded. “Best of luck to every participant in Event Auction #50.”
