If you’re a fan of Carl Barks, the “good duck man” who revitalized Dusney’s duck comics in the ’40s and ’50s, Heritage Auctions is selling a ton of great stuff, including autographed comics, correspondence, and, at the very high end, some of Barks’ incredibly collectible — and expensive — oil paintings, like “Red Sails in the Sunset,” above, which starts at $30,000.
There’s also this Barks Treasury Gold Limited Edition with Signed Certificate #320/1000 (Applewood Books, 1997) made out to “Steve.”
Which makes you wonder if it might have once belonged to Steve Geppi, owner of Diamond and a HUGE Barks collector. Since he also owns Heritage, it seems pretty reasonable that some of the Barks stuff might once have been part of his collection.
