'Museum quality' Superman and Batman collectibles sell in Indianapolis

Comic book, movie and TV show memorabilia of the two caped crusaders is going under the hammer

Actors George Reeves and Christopher Reeve will always be remembered for their stints as the Man of Steel, and now collectors will have a chance to invest in that legacy at Antique Helper's Super Hero Museum Collection Auction on January 22.

More than 1,000 mementoes are going to auction, all from a now-closed American Superheroes Museum in Indianapolis. The museum opened in March 2007 but closed without official explanation in January 2008.

Memorabilia of Superman's sometime colleague Batman will also be featured. Among the prized lots are costumes "in the style of those worn" by Reeves and Reeve. Also auctioning are replicas of the Batmobile and Batboat alongside various items from comic books, movies and TV shows of the two superheroes.

Collectors won't want to miss out on the chance to invest in some museum-graded Superman memorabilia, and will be able to take part online until bids close on January 22. Any unsold items will then be up for grabs in an "express auction" on January 25.

Costumes, toys and other items are up for sale online

Superman proved his supreme strength on the collectibles markets in 2010. Last year, Action Comics #1, featuring the debut appearance of Superman, made history when an 8.5 VF+ ('very fine' plus) grade copy sold for a World Record $1.5m price.
