Collector's Call Web Extras: A supersized superhero collection and museum!
Incredible props from Batman, Superman, Captain America, Deadpool and more!
Many collectors aspire to turn their collection into a museum; Allen Stewart is one step ahead of them. His Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum houses his collection of 65,000 comic books – all of which he's read – as well as a wide range of memorabilia, movie props, and more.
Allen shares with Lisa some of his proudest finds: a wooden Superman action figure from 1939; the 1942 comic that first cover-featured Wonder Woman; the sports car crushed by Tony Stark in the first Iron Man movie; and a shield used onscreen by Chris Evans' Captain America.
We've brought along Peter Przysiezny, president of Comic Book Roadshow, who set a value on the museum's contents. In total, it's worth about $5,000,000!

2. Meet Allen Stewart Extra: Adam West's Personal Batman Costume
While not used onscreen in the original 1966 series Batman (well, the boots were) this costume was personally worn by Adam West himself in appearances throughout the 1970s and '80s.
3. Meet Allen Stewart Extra: 1978 Superman Film Flying Model
Believe it or not, this wood and resin figure was used for the special effects in the 1978 Superman blockbuster. The effects team filmed this doll to take the place of Christopher Reeve in the spectacular flying scenes. It's worth upwards of $15,000.
I've collected fifty years myself, and what I've read (notbowned...friends dobshare, and offshore pirate online sites have an endless supply) might approach half of that.
