Record Auction Price for Avengers Comic Book

What can you buy for $492,937?  Well many of us could buy a house and a car.  For others it can buy a college education at one of America’s fine colleges or universities.  Yet still for others, the people that have boatloads of money and are aficionados of the X-men, they could buy a comic book.
Granted, this was not just any comic book; this was a prime time quality Silver Age Marvel comic book from 1963.  It was rated a CGC grade of 9.8, in which a score of 10 is perfect, and is only one of two of the finest copies that have survived.  The X-men comic book record price at auction was realized at a recent auction at Heritage Auctions in California.
