“We’ve known the consignor, Eddie DeAngelini, for a few years now and we’re thrilled that he is using the auction proceeds to purchase Hi De Ho Comics, the oldest comic book shop in Los Angeles,” explained Rob Reynolds, Director of Consignments.
As a child, DeAngelini’s favorite character was, by far, the Amazing Spider-Man. It took him nearly four decades to compile every single issue of his Amazing Spider-Man collection and his highlight book is Spidey’s first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 CGC-certified 1.0 GD/FA with slight restoration.
More highlights include: Amazing Spider-Man #1 GD-, #13 VF-, #9 F/VF, #3 FN, #4 VG/F and hundreds more!
When approached with the prospect of owning part of Hi De Ho Comics, DeAngelini’s choice to sell his collection to pay for his share of the company was a no-brainer. The Amazing Spider-Man auction will allow him to fulfill another lifelong goal, becoming a comic shop owner.
Now part owner of Hi De Ho Comics, DeAngelini looks forward to the results of the January 12, 2015 auction. “Although it was hard to part with the collection, the amount that it will bring will open up a new life changing opportunity,” he explained. The collection is anticipated to total in the tens of thousands of dollars.
