SET TO GIVE AWAY TWO
CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 PROP COMIC
BOOKS JUST BEFORE THE
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER
AUCTION AT C2E2
IN CHICAGO ON APRIL 14
LOS ANGELES- April 2, 2012 – Profiles in History, run by Joe Maddalena, will be holding two separate raffles to give away two original prop Captain America Comics #1 made for the film production of Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The First Avenger. Each prop comic book has been certified and given a 9.4 grade by the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC). The comic book is pictured left. CGC is the first and most trusted independent, impartial, third-party grading service for collectible comic books.
One prop comic book will be raffled off at the Chicago Entertainment and Comic Expo (C2E2). For those not attending C2E2, Profiles will raffle off the other prop comic book via Facebook. Winners will be announced on April 14, at 5:30pm CDT, just before the Captain America: The First Avenger auction at 6pm CDT. Details for both contests are below.
The hero Captain America shield encased in “ice” resin, pictured below, will be part of the auction. The first time we ever see Captain America’s ultimate hero shield is in the opening scene of the film where an expedition of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in the Arctic investigates the wreckage of the Suborbital Bomber. Entering the hull of the frozen ship, the explorers discover the iconic red, white and blue shield frozen solid in a block of ice. This prop is composed of a distressed, metallic Captain America shield suspended in a solid block of clear resin, a one-of-a-kind, significant piece. It is expected to fetch $4,000 – $6,000.
