METROPOLIS PRESENTS THE GOLDEN LOCKER COLLECTION!

 

Collectors will love the once-in-a-lifetime story of the Golden Locker Collection, a wonderful find full of rare vintage comics treasures which turned up in a storage locker bought by a lucky and persistent ephemera aficiando, who shares his story with us at our site. An excerpt from this remarkable tale...

 

"Boy, did I get dirty. Everything I touched just crumbled and turned to black dust. I was wearing a dust face mask and was still coughing and sneezing as I carefully looked through everything. ...Anything that could have been valuable was either badly broken or deteriorated beyond the point of no return. ...Oh well, It was an adventure. Wait, there is another box right here in the back. I reach down to pick it up. Ooooof!! Great! Another box of books! I move it over to the other boxes of books and didn't even look in it. My excitement is all long gone. I looked around at all the trash and starting thinking what next steps and phone calls I have to make to my trash hauling guy to get this out of here. I call him on the phone, Hey man, I ve got a large storage locker full of trash, can you come take it out?  Yup!,  My trash hauler says. I can do it tomorrow.  Well this didn't turn out so great. Let me see what kind of books I got in this last box and...

 

"Captain America is now staring me right in the face. This is cool. I know that some old comic books are worth something, but I have no idea what. Let's see what else is in here. Batman, Detective Comics, Jungle Comics, Superman, Captain Marvel... Wow!!! I better get these checked out...!"

 

This story is the kind that all collectors and pop culture mavens dream of, a stash of beautiful rare Golden Age comics, all ready to be rediscovered and brought to market for comics fans to drool over. A number of the books from this collection anchored our record-breaking Fall 2012 Event Auction, but there are still some grand treasures to be found in this collection, which is now available on Metropolis, along with the full story of this amazing find. Don't miss this amazing set of terrific rare comics!
