Does Stan Lee Have Storage Units Full Of Original Silver Age Artwork?

So claims an auction house owner who says that what he was told this by someone in the Lee camp.

Great, great catch. I have to say, though, this isn't a "treasure trove" story. Not primarily. It's a "provenance of that art and possibility of missing art from Jack Kirby and other Silver Agers being there -- granted that may be deeply unfair to go to that place, but given the history involved it has to be asked" story. Someone who hasn't written a book about Stan Lee and can get a call returned please track the accuracy and meaning of this admittedly second- or third-hand claim. Trust me, I want to feel silly about saying this out loud, so someone please slap my face with some facts here.
