ComicConnect's Event Auction #53 Ends Next Week

ComicConnect’s Event Auction #53 ends this coming week, March 13-17, 2023 at 7PM EST. “Our first Event Auction of the year is concluding, and I couldn’t be happier with the direction the market is heading again,” explained Vincent Zurzolo, President, and co-founder of the auction house. “Bidding has been strong (and often) across a selection of blue-chip keys for every portfolio.”

A Superman run up to issue #100 includes three unique copies of the landmark first issue, “an Action Comics #1 with a story to tell, a durable Batman #1, a lovely copy of Captain America Comics #1, and a dazzling Fantastic Four #5 lead bidding,” Zurzolo informed. “We’re taking consignments for our next auction, get in touch with me as soon as possible.”

The auction end-dates are as follows:

Session 1: (Original Art, NWC + Video Games, Video Tapes) Ends: Mar 13, 2023

Session 2: (Pulps, International, Action - Batman) Ends: Mar 14, 2023

The international comic market has arrived with some of the most desirable selections in the hobby offered in Event Auction #53.

Plus, Los Hombres X (X-Men) #1 6.5 and dozens more incredibly rare international copies. See every international pulp and comic lot.

“Our videogame section showcases the incredible Nintendo World Championship (NWC) Collection of Nicholas Membrez-Weiler who was only seven years old during the competition. The entirety of the collection is authenticated and certified,” Zurzolo explained.
