The Northern Lights Brighten Heritage Comics!

Posted: 12/23/2004

Collection includes astounding CGC-graded issues

Dallas, Texas: The Northern Lights Collection, an outstanding collection of comics from the Golden and Silver Ages, will be presented by Heritage Comics Auctions (HCA) in their first two sales of 2005, beginning with the February 11-12 Signature Auction, to be held in their Dallas offices.

"The Northern Lights Collection represents an outstanding achievement," said Ed Jaster, HCA's Director of Acquisitions, "assembled by a truly advanced collector who spent in excess of $1 million assembling a grouping of the highest-quality books available. The range of high-grade material here is staggering, from an Amazing Spider-Man run that has to be seen to be believed (the #1 is CGC-graded an astounding 9.4), to a run of Batman #1-200 that will have collectors salivating."

"We'll be offering this collection over the next few sales," continued Jaster, "with the Batman run (as well as an accompanying Detective Comics collection that includes many of the hard-to-find early issues) and the high-grade Silver Age material featured in our February sale. Later in the year, in our May 19-20, 2005 sale, we'll be offering what is undoubtedly the finest More Fun collection in existence, a run that contains a number of Mile High, Larson, and Rockford pedigree copies, and other exciting Golden Age series, including runs of World's Finest, Adventure, and New Comics."

"Each of these books will be tagged, From the Northern Lights Collection, in our catalog, to alert collectors to the provenance of these outstanding treasures," Jaster said.
