Man Loses Box Of Valuable Comics At Tampa Bay Convention; Comics Insured, May Have Been Stolen

The local media source Tampa Bay Times has unpacked the story of a dealer losing track of a box of valuable comics at Tampa Bay Comic Con here. The possibility for this being foul play is assumed and asserted. Let's hope the comics are returned and that dealers out there see a long-term interest in not facilitating the sale of any of these books.

If nothing else, this is one of those stories that makes you stop and realize just how much material of value some of these guys are moving around. The fact that box is insured is also worth noting, and something I hadn't thought of before.
