Found a Wilbur comic hidden in my garage

Found this Wilbur #5 in the wall of my garage, looks like the #5 is one of the most expensive ones too.

Nice. I know nothing about comic book valuation, but it looks to be in okay but not great condition. Should be able to fetch some decent coin. Even if you only get half of what the lesser one on eBay is listed for, that's still $800 more than you had before and it wasn't doing you any good collecting dust in the wall of your garage, so WIN.

I remember tons of old comic books in the attic of my aunts garage from the 60's. I would by crying if I knew for sure that stuff was still there.

Speaking of "what its worth?" I have a working Edison cylinder player with a couple of dozen cylinders tucked away. What do you Pirates think something like that is worth?

Depending on the model and year, anywhere from about $100 to possible millions. If it was actually Edison's, then the sky's the limit. If it was one of the mass-produced ones and in new condition, then a couple hundred. If it was one of the real early ones in good condition, then possibly a grand or so.

If it is one of the mass produced ones in clapped out condition, then maybe about $100.

Oh, and if you try to sell it to the American Pickers, they'll be into it for about $50.

What was a real crime...My parents had a large collections of single sided 78's; some of the music was from the deep south. That shit music was classic racist with a capital "R" (Mother was a caretaker). The crime is in destroying this material. No lesson to be learned.
