Remember this lucky guy? 

Not so long ago, we told you about Minnesota resident David Gonzalez, who, against every possible odd, found a copy of Action Comics #1 in the walls of his home. It had been used as insulation, of all things but, despite that, was in pretty reasonable condition.

Well, it was in good condition, until his family got ahold of it. David's in-laws wanted the comic so bad they snatched it out of his hands, ripping it in the process.

So how much money did Gonzalez make despite the damage? $175,000! Without the tear, it could have sold for a quarter million or more, but no matter how you slice it, that's still a lot of money.

There are only about one hundred copies of Action Comics #1 in existence ... that we know of, at least. Who knows -- maybe you've got a copy hiding in your walls and you don't even know it!
