Comic book collectors will be inspired by this story.


Father Richard Schaen of Cleveland Heights, Ohio was able to make enough money selling his Spider-Man comic book to help pay for his daughter’s wedding! (Via The Plain Dealer)
 

Schaen was getting a little worried about the cost of his eldest daughter’s upcoming nuptials when he remembered a box he had stored full of his old comic book collection.


When he took a look through it, he saw some real gems. (Via WTVG)
 

“Among them? The “Amazing Spider-Man” – volume No. 1 – which he bought for – get this  – about 12-cents when it was published back in 1963.” (Via XETV)
 

Well, the 69-year-old put that 12-cent purchase he made when he was 19, up for auction on the website comiclink.com and got $7,900 for it! (Via WKYC)

 

Talk about a return on your investment, but KMSP says if it were in perfect condition, he could have made up to 4 times more.


“It was rated 6.5 on a scale of 10. Pretty good rating, but a mint condition comic would have sold for much, much more.” 
 

Well, nonetheless, the dad made just enough to pay for a big chunk of the catering costs at his daughter’s wedding.


“Now that he paid off the wedding, he says he will auction off other comic books to pay for a new roof on their house.” (Via WTXF

People magazine says, the dad’s next big sell was a copy of “Daredevil” No. 1, which he sold for $1,600, and he’s putting his first issues of “The Hulk” up next.
