We’re swinging in with this week’s early-start auctions, and they’re both doozies! Who wouldn’t want a copy of Avengers #1 (yes, both the origin and first appearance of the original Avengers lineup!) for their collection? With the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicking into high gear, the Avengers are in the spotlight now more than ever.
Speaking of spotlights, Amazing Spider-Man 2 (which was partially filmed right here in Rochester) is opening this week, so this is the opportunity to own a beautiful copy of a major emotional milestone in Spidey’s life. You’ll want to catch this before it’s gone!
These 10-day auctions run from April 30th to May 10th:
