Comics from the Davis Crippen Collection were auctioned in August 2006 at Heritage Auction Galleries.
"These comics, the great majority of them unread, were bought off the newsstand by a previously unknown collector named Davis Crippen. He started at age eight, but his collection really picked up steam a year later, in 1939. Inspired by a family friend's collection of Big Little Books, Crippen decided that from then on he would buy and keep every single new comic book as it came out."
The Davis Crippen Collection has been found to be the source of the "D copy" comics, books with a hand-written D on the cover that puzzled collectors for years.
