Comic books are said to have been one of the greatest ideas mankind has ever conceived. We aren’t quite sure who said this, but it was probably Aristotle or Abraham Lincoln. Probably.

And now, you can get your hands on more than 300 comic books. For super cheap! The latest sale from Wilson Auctioneers, Inc. has no reserve, meaning you can score oodles of awesome superhero stories for a great price, which we think that is awfully super.

…No pun intended. Okay, maybe a little.

What’s Been Your Favorite Proxibid Auction?

A lot of quirky collectibles, jaw-dropping antiques and hidden gems have crossed through our Marketplace over the years.

Remember when we had the opportunity to clone your pet available for bid? Or who can forget the 500 collector Chevrolets in a field in Pierce, Nebraska? And of course, the time Bernie Madoff’s blue satin New York Mets baseball jacket sold for more than 20 times its estimate.

This Sale is Out of this World! …Get it? Because it’s Space-Themed!

This sale is taking one small step for Proxibid, and one giant leap for our buyers! (Yes, the space references are going to keep coming so you might as well just buckle in…to your space suit.)

We are excited to share Auctionata’s Soviet Space Memorabilia sale hosted by Proxibid. The live auction will be held Sept. 13, so grab your tubes of food paste and watch “Gravity” on repeat because things are about to get spacey.

This auction has the perfect balance of quirk and historical awesomeness. The items hail from the ventures of the Soviet space program. There are space-tried suits, signed collector’s items and manuscripts from the Soviet space program that hold great scientific and sentimental value.

One auction highlight is a Soviet dog spacesuit from 1961. A suit similar to this was also worn by Laika, a dog who was the first living creature to orbit the Earth. The auction will feature a cognac bottle, which was signed by Yuri Gargarin, the first human being to journey into space.

While Michael Jordan is not involved with this sale, this space stuff is our JAM!

Don’t miss this sale!
