Maggie Thompson comic collection heading to auction, estimated value $1 million

From the Huffington Post:

Comic book collector and industry legend Maggie Thompson of Wisconsin has decided to put some 500 pieces of her personal collection up for auction over the next few months. The first wave alone includes the first issue of “The Avengers,” ”Journey Into Mystery” No. 83, which features the first appearance of Thor, the first issue of “The Incredible Hulk” and the original cover art for the fourth issue of “Conan the Barbarian.”

News of the auction has comic lovers’ wallets tingling. The books are in exceptional condition; auctioneers expect the total collection could fetch $1 million by the time sales wrap up next year.

Will be interesting to watch.

Wow. I’ve always been a fan of Maggie (and Don) Thompson. I don’t blame her for selling for that kind of money. I would think the comics would be worth more simply because they were collected by her.
