First Day of Heritage Comic Auction Strong

Thursday, November 15, the first day of the Heritage Vintage Comics and Comic Art Auction closed with exceptional activity across the board. Both graded and non-graded books saw strong interest from collectors across the globe. The two day event is heading into the second day of bidding as Scoop is going to press. Here are some of the significant early sales:

Primarily among them is The Larson Pedigree Copy of Marvel Comics #1, CGC 8.0 which brought $89,625. One of the three or four most important books in the history of comics, no collector can dispute the value found in a good copy of Marvel Comics #1. The one offered in auction is part of the Larson Pedigree and is the only 8.0 non-restored copy in the CGC census.

Golden Age and Silver Age titles were well represented across the board. However, Bronze Age Comics proved their growing strength in the marketplace. A copy of X-Men #94, CGC 9.6, featuring the book debut of the modern team after their first appearance in Giant X-Men #1brought $8,365. It is considered one of the five most important Bronze Age books.

Pedigree comics such as Mile High, Hawkeye and Larson saw heavy interest from collectors as those books brought top dollar. After a day of comics, the first session drew to a close as the auction moved into publisher bound volumes, pulps and original art.

The auction is scheduled to continue on November 16, 2007. Many collectors are keeping their eye on the original paintings by the great Carl Barks. Always a collector’s favorites, original oils by Barks are a big draw in any auction.

Also scheduled to be offered today is original art from Walt Kelly, Gil Kane, Matt Baker, Neal Adams, Murphy Anderson, Jim Aparo and many other fan favorites. The auction doesn’t just stop at the classics, with modern masters such as Joe Jusko, Klaus Janson, and Peter Bagge represented.

Scoop will cover the highlights of the second day sales. For those who wish to check out the bidding as it happens, please visit Heritage Comics online.
