Superman and Batman comic books sold for record-high prices recently. Superman's debut in Action Comics No. 1 sold in a private sale for $1 million. With prices like that, you have to wonder if we are all in a recession or not. What is the highest price ever paid for a souvenir building? I asked a few fellow collectors about the most expensive building replicas they've seen actually sell (not just priced high). An antique obelisk replica was reportedly sold during the San Francisco SBCS convention for about $8,500. A world's fair clock from the columbian exposition was sold on eBay for $5,000. The Empire State Building with zeppelin sold for $3,000. An Acacia Life Building from Washington, D.C. sold for $2500. Recently a White Owl cigar exhibit for sold for $1750. Have any miniature buildings ever sold in the 5 figures? What's the highest price you've paid for a building? Have any interesting buying or selling stories you'd like to share? How about the 'one that got away' and now you regret? Let us know via the comments link below.
