Boy Reading Comic Book, 1963

This gave me a little chill. He’s not reading any old comic book. He’s reading The Amazing Spider-Man #1 from 1963! It looks like it’s one of the kid’s birthday presents, and I see other comics underneath Spidey.

ASM #1 today, in off the rack condition, would be worth over $50,000. God knows what else is in that pile.


On another note: Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I’ve got some cool stuff planned for the holiday season, and I’m kicking it off on Monday with a special contest announcement. Stay tuned.

    Holy crap, whaaat? $50K+?!! It would be awesome to find out who that kid was, and if he’s still around today. Did you see that cool submarine toy to the right of him with the cool illos? “SURFACE ATTACK” ..”DIVES” ..”RUNS SUBMERGED” ..! What the heck is that thing?
