News-Antique.com - Nov 14,2007 - Dallas, TX: Heritage Auction Galleries announced that its Comics and Comic Art division has registered its 50,000th bidder-member.
"When we held our first comic auction in November 2001, Heritage had $150 million in annual sales and a total of 39,500 bidder-members, all of whom were coin and currency bidders," said Heritage co-chairman Jim Halperin. "Our annual sales have almost quadrupled since that time, and we now have over 325,000 bidder-members across all collectibles categories."
"Comics remains one of our strongest divisions, in fact our total comics and comic art sales since we started in November 2001 are over $85 million." Halperin added. "Hitting the 50,000 bidder mark also demonstrates how strong the comic hobby has become."
