Got $100,000 or so to Spend on Comics?


Hey, we're in the middle of a recession and all, but you never know what people have lying around in their wallets. Or in their attics. Take this Dallas man, Ralph Chicorel, who was just recently reported to be holding on to some very special comic gems. Turns out that Ralph, now 78, has been collecting for a very long time and has copies of such classics as Batman #1 and Marvel Mystery Comics #9. His collection is going on auction starting Thursday and running through the weekend, a sale that's expected to bring in up to half a million dollars. So if you've got some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket, check it out. Think of it as an investment!
