This list of signed issues, while representative of the titles, characters, writers and artists featured througout this extensive hoard, it is still just a sampling. Many of the famous titles noted are present in partial runs of signed/unsigned issues and certainly include many #1 inaugural issues, variants and key appearance issues. Also noted among the sixty-plus comic book short boxes comprising this lot, is a box full of hardcover books/graphic novels and during the examination of this hoard, the occassional trade paperback was noted. As noted above, both comic book and autograph quality are at top levels and it is estimated that the break value for the lot exceeds $50,000 at fair market value. Literally weighing in at a ton, this lot is going to cost a good bit to ship and local pick-up at our Maryland facility is recommended. 

This is the last of 9 large lots of comic books from the Michael Solof collection that are being offered in our current auction. All of these lots feature high grade comics, with a good number that are signed. Solof, who worked at Geppi's Entertainment Museum in Baltimore as the "Collection and Exhibits Manager", has stated that he personally acquired the autographs directly from the artists and writers. Please see our Americana/Comics category to review this collection. 

Due to considerable weight, this lot will incur a significant shipping fee.
