Comic Book Leads to Riches…But Don’t Start Taking Apart YOUR Walls!
David Gonzalez, 34-year-old guy in Minnesota, bought a house in Elbow Lake for just over ten grand with the idea of fixing it up and flipping it. As he was working on the structure and started busting through walls, that's when he found the mother lode...
There, unbeknownst to anyone, was a 1938 comic book with the first appearance of Superman. It was tucked in with a bunch of old newspapers being used as insulation. He had to get into the walls to change that. Good thing he did.
Can you say, "cha-ching?"
