Gold and Silver Age Comic Books Cross the Block on Proxibid
Comic book collectors will hit the jackpot when they log on to bid in the upcoming Comic Book and Cereal Radio Premiums auction on Proxibid Sat. Nov. 5 at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST and Sun. Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. EST. at www.proxibid.com/backtothepast.
This auction features an amazing collection of comics, character premiums and original art pages, one-of-a-kind items and many milestone key comics issues, some rarely seen at auction. Many of the items are from a single owner who often found items that only surfaced once during his forty-year search. Collectors and enthusiasts from across the globe will not want to miss the opportunity to bid live online on featured items, including:
• Lot 418: Movie Comics #1 from 1939. All 6 issues of Movie Comics are offered in this auction. Very scarce, fewer than 50 copies of most of these issues still exist.

Says Andrew Cirinesi, BTTP Auctioneer, “Having been in the business of buying pop culture collectibles for over 30 years, I can say that this is one of the most amazing single-owner collections I’ve seen, comprising hundreds of cereal premiums from the 30’s 40’s and 50’s as well as an amazing collection of golden and silver age comic books. Much of this material can only be found in private collections and rarely makes to the auction block.”
