It's like something out of a comic book: A Minnesota man was in the process of remodeling an abandoned Elbow Lake house he had purchased for $10,100, when he suddenly stumbled across the most valuable comic book of all time hidden inside the wall.
Within two days, the bidding had already surpassed $100,000, with 20 days to go.
Though that sounds like one hell of a return on investment, the comic book was actually worth more until Gonzalez and his wife's in-laws accidentally ripped it during an argument.
"They got all excited and tried to take it," Gonzalez told the Star Tribune. "I understand it’s something cool, but told them: ‘You don’t have to act so rude. I brought you in to show you, don’t grab it.'"
"That was a $75,000 tear," noted ComicConnect co-owner Stephen Fishler.
Gonzalez will take home half of the final sale price — the rest will go to cover middle-man expenses and auctioneer fees.
