Nicolas Cage’s Stolen Superman Comic Book Reportedly Being Auctioned Online
3:45 pm, November 12th, 2011
The Superman comic book stolen from Nicolas Cage eleven years ago is reportedly being sold at auction, and it could fetch an unprecedented $2 million.
Action Comics No. 1, from June 1938, marks the first appearance of the Man of Steel, and well-known fan Cage spent approximately $150,000 for his copy in 1997.
While roughly a hundred copies are thought to exist, only a handful are in quality as pristine as Cage’s.
But the comic was stolen from the actor’s home in January 2000.
It was ultimately discovered in a storage locker last April.
At the time, Cage, who’d been reimbursed by an insurance company, expressed his hope that he could reach a settlement and regain the item.
But an online auction featuring what’s assumed to be the infamous copy is now underway, with the current bid at just over $1.3 million.
The previous record sale for an Action Comics No. 1 was $1.5 million in 2010 – except that copy’s condition wasn’t as good as this one’s.
Bids end on November 30, so be sure to scrape together some cash before then!
