Old Comic Book Price Guides are Hilarious...

.
Definitely not the norm for BoGD, and I don't seriously collect comics myself, but I thought you guys would still get a kick out of the incredibly low values quoted in Hal L. Cohen's Official Guide to Comic Books published in 1974. How times have changed! All values are for "mint" condition...

  • ACTION COMICS #7: $300
  • ALL-AMERICAN COMICS #16: $170
  • AMAZING FANTASY #15: $42.50 (whut?)

  • BATMAN #1: $850
