This pissed me off. I don’t really know why, it just fucking bugs me:
The Top Two are the Original Artwork to Superman # 199, the First Race Between Superman & the Flash, and the Batman & Robin PinUp was an Ad Piece that’s probably the most iconic image of Batman in the Silver Age. Both works are by Carmine Infantino.
The Bottom Two are Marvel Tales # 233 & 235, Respectively, by Todd McFarlane.
Marvel Tales # 233 (the Original X-Men Team) sold for $44,812.50 on Heritage Auctions.
Marvel Tales # 235 (with the Uncanny X-Men team) sold for $56,762.50 on Heritage Auctions.
Combined Total: $101,575.00
OK, is everybody with me so far?
Superman # 199 sold for $33,925.00 on Heritage Auctions.
the PinUp of the Dynamic Duo sold for $28,750.00 on Heritage Auctions.
Combined Total: $62,675.00
Translation: 2 Otherwise Forgotten Covers by Todd McFarlane outsold two of the most iconic images in the history of comics. By $38,900.00.
