If it's crap ... We'll tell you
La Grange, Illinois resident George Toman was cleaning out his attic recently when he found a box of old comics he had bought for a few coins back in the 60s. Not knowing what any of the books were worth, he took them to local comic book shop Chimera's Comics. The owners of the shop informed Mr. Toman that one particular book in the box, 'Amazing Fantasy No. 15,' was worth over $10,000. The issue just so happened to be the first appearance of Spider-Man. Had Toman's copy of the book been in mint condition, it could have conceivably gone for well over one million bucks; as did one such issue at auction last year. Why the hell do I only find mothballs and tangled Christmas tree lights in my attic?!
