Copy of Action Comics #1 found in wall of house

A Minnesota man remodeling a home he had recently bought found a copy of Action Comics #1 in the walls of the building. In his excitement, he accidentally ripped the cover while showing it to a relative (the tear apparently has lowered the value of the book by $75,000, with estimates now for the copy at just over $100,000).

The comic is to be auctioned by Comic Connect.

News Story at the National Post about the find here.
