Holy smoke, Batman! A Batman No. 1 comic book that was discovered hidden in an old dresser bought at a garage sale in the early 1970s is going up for auction this week. According to MSNBC, the original garage sale buyer, Ron Jaeger, sold it in 1974 to Mike Wheat, an avid comic book collector. Heritage Auction Galleries is handling the sale for Wheat and have given the once garage sale find a pre-sale estimate of $40,000. I’m betting it will go for a lot more….and that you will enjoy these classic Batman moments.
