WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"When I buy from Metropolis, I have confidence that what I order is what I will get."
- Jeffrey S., New York
The Metropolis Survey

Dear Friends,

We have been very busy lately buying collection after collection- it has been a very rewarding time for us. Stephen and I have just celebrated the 1-year Anniversary of the partnership. I would like to say it has been a tremendous year filled with learning and growth for both of us. It is hard to believe just last July 1st I packed up my entire office and moved into Metropolis. I look back on my decision and realize what a tremendous experience I would have missed if I did not merge companies.

We will be in San Diego for the big show and I hope any of you who will be there will drop by to visit with us. We are actively buying as usual and will be showcasing a tremendous inventory of Gold and Silver including a tremendous amount of CGC graded material. We hope to see you soon.

Sincerely,

Vincent Zurzolo, Jr.

 

METROPOLIS BUYS CROWLEY COLLECTION

 

On June 14, 2000 Vincent Zurzolo of Metropolis Collectibles purchased yet another virgin collection consisting of over 1200 golden age comics. The original owner, Wendell Crowley, a former editor at Fawcett built an amazing collection of comic books during the 1940’s.

"This collection has taken over a decade to purchase" states Stephen Fishler of Metropolis, "I first viewed the books in 1984 but the family did no feel it was the right time to sell". Approximately 5 years ago Metropolis tried again to purchase the collection but once again the family’s sentimental attachment kept the collection off the market. "Due to our persistence and commitment we were finally able to buy the collection" Zurzolo adds smiling.

The collection consisted of two sections, the Fawcett section and the Non-Fawcett section. Fishler mentioned "We were excited about the Non-Fawcetts which included many runs of Timely and DC titles. We were not as thrilled to buy the Fawcetts due to our already extremely deep inventory and the fact that over a thousand of the Fawcetts had large file stamps on the face or prime focal area of the books".

Beautiful copies of Wonder Woman #1, Sensation #1, Suspense Comics, Terrific Comics, Captain America, Flash, Green Lantern, More Fun, Shadow, Doc Savage, Super Magician, Red Dragon, Supersnipe, Daredevil, Blackhawk, Plastic Man, the Spirit, Doll Man, Crack, Feature, Kid Eternity, Modern, National, Smash, Boy, Uncle Sam, Human Torch, All Select #1, Sub-Mariner, Airboy, Captain Aero, Catman, Clue, Holyoke, Power, Big All American, All Winners, Venus, Punch, Dynamic, Silver Streak, Blue Beetle, Target, Wonder, Atomic Bomb, Funnyman, Stuntman, Shield-Wizard, Zip Yellowjacket, Cannonball, Green Lama, Mask, Prize, Frankenstein, Police, Two Fisted Tales, Strange Adventures, Crime does not Pay, Military, Air Ace, Air Fighters, Wings and Young Allies are all represented in this new pedigree collection. Zurzolo adds "we are now getting a Suspense Comics #3 graded by CGC. We believe it to be the finest in existence to date".

The vast majority of the books are in very fine or better with hundreds in the near mint range. Over six hundred comics from the collection have been sent to CGC for slabbing. "We anxiously await their return as we are sure the Crowley Collection will be greeted warmly by the collecting community," Ryan Jackson of Metropolis said.
