If you thought honesty and integrity were in short supply in our more cynical, jaded age, think again! Over on the AK47.net, a forum which usually discusses topics regarding guns and firearms, a user going by the handle The_Macallan, posted the following:
So I ordered a comic book online, and the seller sent me the wrong one. They sent me this one instead:
The comic they sent him was a copy of the original Amazing Spider-Man #1 (1963) by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, which, depending on the condition, can sell on average between $2,000 to $36,000 (some auctions have sold a copy for more than $83,000 and others have even gone as high as $200,000).
So what did The_Macallan do when he found out he’d received one of the most sought-after comics of all time? He returned it!
I contacted the seller about their mistake and they were EXTREMELY relieved to hear from me and that I’d be sending it back to them.
Wow. So I got to hold a piece of cultural history for at least a couple of days.
I’d say someone has taken the immortal words “with great power comes great responsibility” to heart, don’t you?
