Will the one you bought this masterpiece fess up and make themselves known, for if you recall, 10 days ago I reported that a 9.4 graded copy of the of the 1962 FIRST appearance of Spider-Man was to be auctioned off, well thanks to Comic Book Resources we now know what it went for which was
$454,100 or £318,280
And according to Comic Book Resources this wasn’t the first time a Near-Mint copy was sold, according to The Associated Press notes another copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 fetched $1.1 million/£770,992 in a private sale in 2011.
And while we don’t know who the buyer is, We do know it was sold by 60-year-old Walter Yakaboski of Middle Island, New York, who bought it for $1,200 in 1980, and due to circumstances, has to sell off some of his vintage comics collection.
When asked for a quote by the Riverhead News-Review, he told them “You can’t hold on to something forever”.
