ComicConnect Puts a Wrap on 2022

“2022 was, by far, our biggest year ever and last week’s $5.2 million dollar Event #52 was the gravy on the grits,” Vincent Zurzolo, said. “Up against a market that has been tough for a few categories, we achieved several record prices in grade. Thank you to every participant on either side of the hammer.”

Event Auction #52 offered blue-chip Golden Age keys, hundreds of original art lots, high-grade Silver and Bronze Age keys, runs of rare Timelys, certified video tapes and games, pulps, and a TMNT collection filled with rarities from one of the creator’s uncles, Quentin Eastman.
