Of course, aside from being the best known condition copy (CGC graded 9.0) of this rare book – which features the first appearance of Superman by Jerry Siegel and JOE SHUSTER – this copy once belonged to actor NICOLAS CAGE.
It had been stolen from his house under mysterious circumstances and was recently located and recovered. As Cage was reimbursed by his insurance company, the copy has gone up to auction on Comic Connect.
Current Overstreet Price Guide estimated value is a little over a million US$.
Final price: a record US$2,161,000.00
