So, watching the newest round table get together of the cast. Darrell talkes about his 5.5 Million? Wow Factor.

So was this that comic collection he talked about in an earlier episode that was bought for 2,500?

5.5 million, really? Who owns any of these books? If it was 5.5 million I am assuming nm/mt books, lol .

Those are not the numbers he was throwing around the first time he mentions his comic find. I forget what he did mention , but it was a couple hundred thousand, at best.

I dont think it was even that much. he sold them in the early 90s and Im sure he didnt sell them at full value. I remember him saying he regreted selling them.

Didn't he say something that if he would have kept hold of them it would have made him millions today. But because he sold them earlier it was far below that.

Not sure. I think he talks about it in the first episode

I believe I read he sold them for around 100K. ALot of number ones . Im sure 5.5 million is a exageration but suffice to say if they were worth over $100K back then thye might be worth close to a milllion now I suppose.

I don't know hm

From the pics they showed, it looked like boxes of HG SA bOoks and they showed him holding a really nice looking x-men1 and I think ASM 1. Of course, even though the pics made the books look 9.0ish, they could have been 6.0ish.

Does anyone here actually know about his find and what really was in it

He bought the storage locker for $2,500 in 1991. He sold the collection the same year for $130,000. The pictures show numerous ASM 1's, X-Men 1's, Silver Surfer, runs of books. There were around 27 long boxes of book's. He does say it was considered a top ten comic book collection in the world at the time. He also say's had he kept that collection it woud be worth millions now and it would of been his retirement nest egg.

From the pictures and what he says about the collection. I could see this collection being in the $1M - $2.5M in todays market. All of the books were bagged and boarded, for what that's worth. The run of ASM books would be huge money by itself,
