As reported in The Sunday Times on Sunday March 15, 2009, a rare copy of the first Superman comic book (Action Comics Number 1) was sold for a whopping US$317,200 (S$527,964) at an auction last Friday. Who says collecting comics is not a worthwhile investment? And this during the global financial crisis!!!
So hold on to your collectibles. Maybe one day it could reap you rewards beyond your wildest dreams - ha! ha! Most importantly, just enjoy your collection :) If you are happy with your purchase, just be content and don't feel lousy when down the road, the price is lower than what you'd paid for. If you were satisfied with the price of the collectible and were willing to part with good money for it, then that's the value you place on that figure. If you aren't happy, don't buy lah - that's my philosophy ;D
Maybe this Superman would be worth something someday - ha! ha! Imagine if they had released a Christopher Reeve Superman i.e. the Original, can you imagine what he'll be worth now?
