Sarley was a brilliant young man, and a meticulous collector, who recognized early the value of investing, collecting and safe-keeping items that would become sought after in years to come. He kept his comics in a small closet in his tiny bedroom on the top floor of his house, safe from the prying eyes of his younger siblings. After graduating college Eddie had a promising career moving up the business ladder. Yet fate had other plans for this young man. Tragedy struck on Thanksgiving Day, 1974 when Eddie died instantly in an auto accident at the age of 25. It was more than 20 years before that Eddie’s mother and father were finally able to bring themselves to peruse their son’s beloved comic book collection. They put a number of Eddie’s comics up for auction at a different auction house in 1992.
“The family has finally decided to release the rest of Edward’s amazing collection,” said Jaster, “a boon to collectors and a great honor for Heritage. These are truly great comic books and should command according respect from collectors.”
