    • I had the opportunity to visit with Mr. Beck on several occasions, including two or three times at his home. Very interesting man, every visit was an education.

  2. I have a few C.C.Beck autographs and some letters from him when he was living in Florida in 1980.
    How much is his autograph worth now (2020)?
    I believe Mr Beck and his Superman rivals, Siegel and Shuster, share the Golden Age comicdom rankings.

    • Thanks, Joe! Autographs from Superman creators Siegel and Shuster (1938) are now worth some thousands of bucks. How about an autograph from Creator of Capt
      Marvel and the Marvel Family Mr CCBeck?
      What is its market value? Thanks again.
