Though it's been reprinted countless times, very few actual copies of "Superman" No. 1 exist. Opportunities to see a copy-let alone own one-are rare.
Joel Magee ("America's Toy Scout") has one of them.
Magee said that the treasured first comic to completely star the Man of Steel-now worth $100,000-is the part of the vintage toy and comic selection he'll bring to his Philadelphia Vintage Toy Buying Show, Sept. 28-29 at the Courtyard Marriott, 100 Drummers Lane, in Wayne.
The show will move to the Wyndham Garden Hotel, 1110 Baltimore Pike, in Glen Mills, for Sept. 30-Oct. 2
Magee said he will be more than happy to take people's comics and vintage toys off their hands.
"I'll help anybody clean out their cellar and attic," he joked.
Magee will, of course, be selling items as well-but has no plans to sell the "Superman" No. 1 anytime soon.
"I have no plans to sell it for a while," he said. "It's like one of those magical life experiences. You can go your whole life without even seeing one of these, let alone buy one. It's taken me 40 years."
