IMPORTANT UPDATE!!! Re: chance to bid on TMNT #1 first printing at Artrageous benefit gala





Hey!


I got an update from my daughter Emily today regarding bidding on the first printing of TMNT #1 which I donated to the Umbrella Community Arts Center for their fundraising gala event called "Artgaeous". Here's what Em had to say about how to bid on this item:

"To have the first opportunity to bid on this piece of comic book history, you'll have to either actually be at Artrageous or buy a ticket to the event. (Tickets to the event can be purchased at http://theumbrellaarts.org/event/artrageous.) If you are unable to be there in person but are interested in bidding, you can purchase a ticket and send Emily your cell phone number. You will get a unique bidder link to join the auction and can bid along with the other gala attendees. However, if the book doesn't sell on the night of the gala, it will be offered on eBay or another online auction website. If you have any questions about the auction, you can contact Emily at emily@theumbrellaarts.org."

So that's pretty cool! By the way, this copy of TMNT #1 first printing has been graded by CGC as a 9.6. A photo of the "slabbed" book which Em just sent to me is at the top of this post. -- PL

  2. ME DA PENA VENDERLO O COMPRARLO
    PETER SOY FAN TMNT DESDE HACE 25 AÑOS
    ME DA MUCHO VALOR PERO SOIS VOSOTROS QUE TENEIS QUE ELEGIR
    PODRIAS PONERLO EN GALERYA COMO KEVIN EASTMAN TU AMIGO
    MI SUEÑOS ES CONOCER A TI Y A KEVIN Y NO ES NADA FACIL
    NO ES FACIL POR MUCHOS FANS Y NO LLEGAIS NI ABASTO
    PERO AHORA ME DA IGUAL TODO SE ME PASO LA ELUSION
    REALIDAD ES SER FELIZ DE UNO MISMO
    SOY FELIZ CON TMNT SIENDO UNO MISMO QUE NO HAY MAS
    CUIDATE ABRAZOTE GRANDE
