ComicLink April Golden Age Focused Auction Featuring CGC’d Comics Is Underway!

Posted: 4/13/2006

ComicLink's April Golden Age Focused Auction is in full swing! This is the last weekend to bid in the auction, which started April 9th and ends over two nights, Wednesday, April 19th and Thursday, April 20th. Over 400 vintage CGC-Graded Golden Age comic books are contained in the impressive auction. If there is one word that unites the auction books, that word is quality. This all-Golden Age Focused Auction, assembled by Josh Nathanson of ComicLink, includes quality items from many different genres. There are many CGC’d key Golden Age DC's, Timelys, high-grade pre-code horror, esoteric early 1940's and late 1930's issues, key Westerns, 9.4-9.6 Fawcett's from the Mile High pedigree collection, a 9.8 Action Mile High, and many more impressive CGC’d items. Approximately 100 of the items in the auction are from pedigree collections. There are also some lower priced Golden Age books making this an auction where every vintage Golden Age collector can participate.

To make the auction even better, over 50% of the items in the auction are being put up with absolutely no reserve! Our objective for this auction was to put together an auction with quality material where bidders can bid with complete confidence. Therefore, any book with a reserve has been screened by Nathanson personally for reasonability. All items with reserves are either at or below (more frequently below) retail levels in order to ensure that bidders can bid with the confidence.
