Richard Schaen, 69, will use the money he earned from an unearthed copy of Amazing Spider-Man No. 1 to help pay for his daughter Jane's wedding in two weeks, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Shaen, from Cleveland Heights, Ohio, bought Amazing Spider-Man No.1 for 12 cents at a drugstore in 1963, but the comic sold $7,900 this year, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.
“I gave my daughter a promissory note for the money with a picture of the Spider-Man comic, which we can use to pay for a big part of the catering for her reception,” he told the newspaper.

His copy of "the Amazing Spider-Man" No. 1 wasn't in perfect condition, and other copies are listed at much higher prices than the $7,000 he took home after fees.
Schaen said he collected comics until his daughter was born, and his stack also contains the first issue of "Daredevil" Comics, as well as the first six issues of "The Hulk."
He's started to sell some of the other gems to fund home repairs, according to the story.
In 2011, the first comic book to ever feature Spider-Man, "Amazing Fantasy No. 15," sold for a record $1.1 million US, according to Metro U.K.
