New to Your Collection Thread #22223

COLLECTOR Foghorn_Sam private msg quote post Address this user
Since the other thread maxed out, I've decided to start a new one.
Here's the other Fantastic Fours I mentioned in prior thread that come from the same collection as the #53 I posted earlier. Super sweet clean books that really pop. Look how clean those back covers are. I really thought these two were really close to the same grade, so the grade point difference was a little surprising. I can't access the grader notes yet for these two for some reason, but I knew they obviously were not as nice as the #53 that got a 9.0. Still, I think it's interesting they got 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 respectively.
Enjoy!

I've been on a bit of a spending spree lately. Let me share a few of the comics that I've acquired so far this year. I'll start at the beginning.

I picked up this raw copy of ASM #5 on eBay. I think I overpaid for it, but it helps fill in my early Spidey collection. It'll be sent in to CBCS the next time I submit.

Next up is a copy of Superman's girlfriend Lois Lane #17. As far as I know, it holds the second appearance of Brainiac. A bit of an undervalued key in my opinion. Yet another eBay buy. Don't worry, I got it cheaper than the price on the sticker.

Here's a graded copy of ASM #2 that I had to get before it started to get too expensive. It's the best grade I could afford, but I'm not complaining.

These next three I got at the East Bay Comic Con this year. It's a smaller con but there were some cool dealers there.

These first 2 I got, again just to fill in the holes of my ASM collection.




I already owned the "Heroes and Villains" variant, but I wanted the "Friends and Family" cover too. Found a decent copy at a fair price.




And the last is a CGC copy of The Killing Joke. I talked the dealer down to fair market value for it and walked away happy.

And lastly, to help me fill in my early 1-20 ASM, I snagged a pretty nice copy of #6 on eBay.

That's it for now. I hope you liked checking out my books. I'll post more when I get more.

I got this group of Spawns in today and I'm freaking ecstatic. There are some 9.8 candidates that will be making there way to Florida sometime in the near future.

This is more of a shout out to my LCS. This death of hawkman cover B by Bill Sienkiewicz is already going for about $20 on eBay and is sold out everywhere I look. It just came out on Wednesday. I called my LCS on Wednesday morning when I saw Midtown comics was already sold out and they set one aside for me. Other LCSs wouldn't let a hot variant just go out the door. They'd put them online or hold them for friends, stuff like that. Earned more loyalty points in my view.

This one is special to me. Bought it not to long ago from a well respected auction house at 6.5. After Joe / CFP magic pancake recipe - this is what it came out of it (I know from the other side of the street - but I use them for my ducks):

Mail man came. Nothing spectacular but I got a few good deals that were too good to pass up.

Not a comic. But couldn't pass up this pure nostalgia trip. These were my gateway drug to comic collecting when I was a kid:

Yesterday's mail call. Mid grade but that's ok. It's for my collection. I'm thinking of having Neal Adams sign this next weekend at a con.
