comic book collection inherited by family expected to net $2M at auction
When Michael Rorrer found 345 comic books neatly stacked in a basement closet as he cleaned out his great aunt’s Virginia home after her death, he thought they were cool but didn’t think much about their value.
He later discovered that his late great uncle Billy Wright had managed to assemble a remarkable comic book collection that included some of the most prized issues ever published, and kept them in good condition. The comics are expected to fetch more than $2 million when they are auctioned off Wednesday in New York City.
