Superman saves the day, once again. Move over Antiques Roadshow — this is one of the best "found treasure" stories ever. A family facing foreclosure was packing up in anticipation of a move from their home and made a discovery that turned their whole situation around.

According to news reports, they found a copy of Action Comics #1, which is the issue where Superman made his debut, in a box of old comics. Their copy will be auctioned off through Comic Connect later this month and is expected to sell for $250k or more. The bank has agreed to hold off on proceedings while awaiting results of the auction.

Hooray for happy endings and Clark Kents everywhere!
