If you ever come across comic books or any sort of collectibles make sure you get them checked out before discarding. These comic books were recently purchased by me for thousands of dollars. The owner found them....wait for it....in the trash!
The owner was rummaging through some items on the curb of a house that had a signed that said "FREE". Among broken furniture and old books were these comic books just waiting to be discovered. Both the seller and myself were happy he decided to give me a call to see if he had anything there.
The moral of the story is always do a little research before getting rid of the "junk" you come across!
