By: Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers
In all, more than 350 graded and fine quality comic books and toys will come up for bid. Online bidding will be offered by the platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com and bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com, or by downloading the mobile app "Bruneau & Co." on iTunes or GooglePlay. A live, pre-sale auction, with no internet bidding, will begin at 10 am Eastern.
"Comic and toy auctions bring a nice variety to the work day at Bruneau & Co.," said company president Kevin Bruneau. "All preview week the gallery is bright and colorful, with everyone's childhood favorites up on the wall. This sale is sure to bring collectors out of the woodwork."
Travis Landry added, "When it comes to auction time there is no better than the comic and toy sale for me. Especially with the fact we have an Amazing Fantasy #15. That book is just special regardless of condition because of how important historically it is. Also, I'm sure the Batman #37 should perform well due to its rarity."
The copy of Marvel Comics Amazing Fantasy #15 (Aug. 1962) is one of the auction's expected top lots, with an estimate of $7,000-$10,000. The comic book, graded CBCS 1.8, features the first appearance and origin of Spider-Man as well as the first appearances of Aunt May, Uncle Ben, Flash Thompson and Liz Allen. It's contained in a 13 inch by 8 ¼ inch plastic CBCS case.
The copy of Batman #37 (DC Comics, Oct.-Nov. 1946), graded CBCS 8.0, is expected to rise to $3,000-$5,000. It features the Joker on the cover and the first appearance of the Jokermobile. The book is a blend of white and off-white pages and is also nicely displayed in a CBCS case.
