Major Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age keys are offered within the ComicLink July Focused Auction, which is now open. There are thousands of no reserve lots to bid on. Whether you collect Golden, Silver, Bronze, or Modern Age comics, original artwork, or sports cards, you are sure to find something to add to your collection. A major highlight is the first appearance of Spider-Man in Amazing Fantasy #15 CGC 8.0 CVA Exceptional. “ComicLink recently sold a similar 8.0 example in the Spring Featured Auction for a record $261,010 and we expect this one to cause a similar level of excitement! It exhibits deep, rich colors and only minimal wear. It’s a lovely specimen that would make for a special centerpiece within virtually any Silver Age collection,” ComicLink founder and President Josh Nathanson said.
“There are many other comic book highlights within the comic book portion of the auction, such as a large group of Tales of Suspense starting with #1, most in high grade, including the key #39 (first Iron Man) in CGC 8.0; the Fantucchio pedigree Justice League of America run; other Amazing Fantasy #15 examples; Brave and the Bold #28 (first Justice League) CGC 6.0; Daredevil #1 (first Daredevil) CGC 8.5; Incredible Hulk #1 (first Hulk) CGC 8.0 (married); Incredible Hulk #181 (first full Wolverine) CGC 9.4; Fantastic Four #45 (first Inhumans) CGC 9.4; and many pristine Moderns including items such as a Frank Miller signed CGC 9.8 Signature Series example of Daredevil #168 (first Elektra). The Golden Age selection includes popular DC issues from the Mt. Rainier collection, early Golden Age keys, tough pre-code horror examples, highly desirable Alex Schomburg Timely covers and rare Canadian Whites. There’s also collection of Golden Age era Superman memorabilia including a complete original 1939 Superman of America Club Kit,” Nathanson added.
