Ohio man sells old Spiderman comic to help fund wedding

By Associated Press

POSTED:



CLEVELAND >> A Cleveland Heights dad was getting worried about the costs of his eldest daughter's upcoming wedding. Then, Spider-Man to the rescue!

The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reports that Richard Schaen remembered that he had stored away his comic books decades ago. He dug out the box, and the first comic he saw was "Amazing Spider-Man" No. 1, published in 1963. The 69-year-old man says the 12-cent comic sold for $7,900 through an auction company, netting him about $7,000.

His copy was graded as 6.5 on a scale of 10. A mint-condition copy would have sold for much more. But he's happy, and says the sale will help cover the catering costs for daughter Jane's reception.
