The story behind this is a family in California bought a fully-furnished home and then found all this stuff inside, left behind by the previous owner. Geeky collection, no?

My only question is: didn’t the family visit the home prior to purchasing and thus would have seen all this before purchasing?

    A couple of months ago there was a show on TV about a house. The Real Estate agent bought it himself once he realized what was in it. The previous tenant had spent more than 30 years (according to an inscription found) building and stocking a multiple room fallout shelter under his house. It had 3-4 entrances from the house and Garage, some of them hidden, and went down at least 3 levels below the house. Nobody knew the previous owner had built it, he did all the work himself in secret.

    The framed Superman and Hulk are definitely Rich Buckler commissions. They are included in the gallery on this page: http://www.bucklercomicart.com/commissions3.html

    It would be possible to tour a house before purchase and still have the previous owners leave stuff behind that you don’t know about. Before my wife and I moved last fall, we had people coming into our home even though we still lived there. The realtor would let us know she was bringing someone by, and we’d go buy groceries or something to get us out of the house for a while. Had we sold it before we moved, we could easily have left unwanted stuff behind as a surprise for the buyers; unless there was language in the contract specifically forbidding us from doing so.
