Meanwhile... obviously there's 15 days left in the auction, but some current bids that caught my eye this morning...

Superman check - $38k

Captain America Comics #77 Romita OA panel page - $12k
(feels like pretty strong money even for Romita with so much of the OA action being in Marvel SA these days)

Action #1 4.5 - $187k

Detective #27 6.5 - $256k

Detective #27 3.0 - $124k

I don't assume that there's anything intelligent happening there at all.

I used to like going to Cancun but no more. The last time, I found out one of the mayan ruins had been slightly repaired, so I demanded 95% of my money back.

For the 3d or 4th time there are some good books in this auction it's just that they are few and far between.

However I do believe that superman check is the most overpriced and overhyped collectAbles in the history of comicbook collecting. I can see 500 bucks or even 2500 but there is no value in this item and how are you gonna hose to display it the front or the back what a waste

If you don't want it, then don't bid and STFU about it.

Many people here think it's odd that people value high grade esoteric books at amounts equal to or even greater than famous and significant books. It seems comparable to saying that a high grade meaningless piece of forgotten literature should be worth more than a lesser grade copy of a world-renowned first edition. (or, for that matter, a book that appears the same or even better to the average person but simply didn't get a third party label which reflects that).

And many people scratch their heads when they see people paying six figures for such items.

But most of them don't make it their mothereffing mission in life to prevent other people from buying them.

And btw if you, of all people, are trying to be all schoolmarmy about the spelling of Collectibles, it IS spelled with an "i" although it's (which means "it has"), become accepted with an "A" as well, only because people mispelled it so much. But that doesn't mean it's unacceptable with an "i.".

And finally your byzantine logic roars up once again when you complain that the check couldn't be displayed so you could see both sides. I won't even point ot the irony of that remark, because if you can't see it without explanation you won't, no matter what.

I actually like this auction because I can afford to buy these books. My most expensive GA book is only 6k so this is a actually a good auction FOR ME. When the "really good stuff" comes along I can't afford it anyways....
(I don't really buy to invest or re-sale though I just like comics and collecting them)

Mitch, it isn't something that you or I might collect, but the check's historic value is obvious. As for display, an enterprising collector would probably buy or build a case that provides observation of both front and back using mirror or prism optics.
