Honestly, given the age, I'm surprised there are that many (although only two don't have restoration).

We're probably past the time in history when any undiscovered mint copies of Action Comics #1 would pop up out of nowhere.

I've been holding onto mine until it's worth 100 million.

It's actually quite astounding that there are forty copies (and that's only through CGC) that are in the fine or higher range.

Most copies of that comic book were either thrown in the trash, lost, or beaten death by kids. I'm really amazed that that many could have survived the years following initial publication.

Even if someone wanted to keep all of their copies of Action Comics, it's still amazing that so many survived in such good condition without getting creased or torn.

Wonder if there were OCD collectors as back as 1939.

I think it's more that a fraction of people basically hoard everything they buy and would often put the comic away in storage soon after purchase, leaving it in a spare bedroom or basement for decades. Doing it that way for everything they buy. I bet that accounts for most of the better Action Comics #1's.
