Attn: Superman comic geeks

Recently my mom cleaned the attic and found these comics from my school days. I vaguely remember buying them, as I have never been a big comic books fan. I have no idea if these things are worth anything or not. Any info on these you could provide would be great. I realize there are only four people that actually read my blog, so I am hoping for some responses. I know Centuri0n seems to be a comic book geek extraordinaire, maybe he'll chime in.

The white plastic covered one is mysterious to me. I have no idea what it is about. I think it is #500. Apparently the Man of Steel died or something, then was brought back to life. All of these are in plastic sheets, I have never opened them. Here are some details.

All are from June 1993, #'s 11-15 (White covered issue unknown). DC Comics #'s 22,78,500,501,687.

Monster is right -- given today's valuation. I'd put them in a safe place and keep them in good shape for another 20 years. AND DON'T OPEN THE PLASTIC ONE. IT WILL BE MORE VALUABLE IN A SEALED COVER.

BTW, they will all be more valuable together. As a set, they will be worth more than the parts.

Thanks fellas, I suspected as much.

Now, baseball cards, thats another story, I have some goodies there. :-)

Maybe when I have time, I'll post some on the blog, just for fun.

Oh Joe!

Baseball cards are pretty much worthless anymore.

At least the older ones are.

Same with football and basketball cards.

I've got Jerry Rice's Topps rookie. It was worth more 10 years ago than today.

Same with Hakeem Olajawan. I have his fleer rookie that was worth about 150 bucks not too far back--today it's worth like 50 dollars tops.

Anybody want to buy some cards from me??? LOL

Jibbs, bro, right after the whole OJ Simpson ordeal, I traded a Barry Sanders rookie card for a creased OJ Simpson rookie. The OJ card is now worth something because of the mess he got in. The Sanders rookie is basically worth squat. What a deal! LOL!! I still have all my cards, they bring back good memories of the 'hood.

I am from Canada and up here, when I was a lad we traded hockey Cards. We had this game where you and another kid would each lean a trading card against the cement step. Then you would blow on the back of his card so that it was pressed into the step, and he would do likewise to your. The card would press up against the step, and possibly (but surprisingly not always) fall backwards. If the card you were blowing fell backwards, you got to keep it, likewise, if your card whom the other fellow was blowing on fell backwards - he got to keep it. By bending the cards slightly you could increase the likelihood of a card not falling over - so most of the cards we traded were all warped.

I don't have any more hockey cards, but for a couple of years I was quite into it.
