Update: The $412 check ($130 for Superman) sold at auction for $160,000 to an unnamed buyer. Scene's scientific research shows a 38,734-percent increase in value is a lot of value. (AP) Grzegorek

Remember last October when we told you that somebody found the $130 check DC used to purchase the rights to Superman from Clevelanders Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster?

Well, it's for sale.

There's an auction starting Monday at Comic Connect that could put that check in your hands.

We're guessing the artifact won't pull in nearly as much as the first issue of Action Comics, which marks Superman's debut.

But you won't be able to pick it up at Superman Returns prices either. —Michael Gallucci
