The $130 Check That Sold the Rights to Superman

In 1938, writers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster sold the rights to one of their characters — some guy by the name of Superman. DC wrote them a check for various services, $130 of which was for Superman. Siegel and Shuster split the profits between them. Not bad for a day’s work, eh?

That check, pictured above, be auctioned in November. And hopefully for more than its original value.
