The winning online bid for the copy of Action Comics Number one. Superman’s first story, $175,000 to an anonymous collector. David Gonzalez found it in the wall of his house in Hoffman, Minnesota. Used as insulation, mixed in with old newspapers for more than 70 years. It wasn’t in great shape. Made worse when Gonzalez tore the cover, grabbing it during an argument with his wife’s aunt. A pristine copy of the same comic sold for more than $2 million dollars a year and a half ago.
