Broke Family Facing Foreclosure Finds First Issue of Superman Comic in House

An anonymous family facing the foreclosure of their home found a box of old comic books in the house. Most are now worth only a few dollars. But one was the prized Action Comics #1 -- the first comic book to feature Superman:

In a statement released through ComicConnect, the owner of the prized comic book said the family was still "a little shell shocked" after the unexpected find. "I was so nervous when I realized what it was worth," the owner said. "I know I am very fortunate but I will be greatly relieved when this book finds a new home."

Last Thursday, the couple's copy received a 5.0 VG(Very Good)/Fine rating on a scale of 1 to 10. It could fetch upwards of $250,000 when it goes up for auction on ComicConnect.com from Aug. 27 through Sept. 17.
