NOTE: After checking seller's ebay profile I found, the seller has No Other products for sale on ebay. And that, most of the seller's History at ebay is as a Buyer/CONSUMER, rather than as a seller. I now feel as though I must apologize to everyone as I now believe this Action Comics No. 1 was Never Really for sale, but that the seller "benebuys ", was just Using ebay to test his market, or for some other diabolical purpose. In any case, I am now Sorry I posted this auction, and Apologize to all my Comic book Listings Blog patrons, for being misled, and for the inconvenience. ~CLB
