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.

An unbroken concrete landscape. 800 million people living in the ruin of the old world and the mega structures of the new one. Mega blocks. Mega highways. Mega City One. Convulsing. Choking. Breaking under its own weight. Citizens in fear of the street. The gun. The gang. Only one thing fighting for order in the chaos: the men and women of the Hall of Justice. Juries. Executioners. Judges.
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,
