Your 2018 “Want List”5111

COLLECTOR JLS_Comics private msg quote post Address this user
Merry Christmas (again) to everyone. I hope with family and friends and full of food, Nog, Coquito, PBR or whatever you drink lol

We have a great thread about your top acquisitions of 2017. Did these come from a “want list” that you created at the beginning of the year or were they finds as you went thorough your collecting journey?

My real question for this thread is: what is on your “want list” for 2018? Be it one book or a Top 10 List, Post it up below!

Before you do, give the video below a listen. I’ll tell you my list but I want to share some thoughts on changing perspectives, motivation and the mindset of a (this)collector.

One of the books I want to get this year, is Sponge Bob Square Pants #1.

Another is Scooby Doo #1.

Anything else will have to call my name real loud. I'm getting too old to keep collecting.

I will be pretty happy if I make as much progress in 2018 as I did in 2017 picking up quality copies of X-Men for my collection. The big issues that I still need are #’s 1-5, 9, and 94.

I've decided that 2018 is going to be the year I pull the trigger on a Giant Size X-Men #1. I've seen way to many over the last few months and for one reason or another I've not been able to grab one.

ASM 121 has eluded me multiple times this past year. I hope to get my hands on one in 2018.

Venom: Lethal Protector Black (Error) & Silver (Italian Edition). This is the year I finish the reasonably-achievable set. I know the White (Error) is out there...but unless I trip over a bar of gold or something, probably out of my price range.

One of these will come home with me from SDCC this year:

Tales of Suspense 52 (8.0)
Spidey 14 (4.0-5.0)
Hulk 181 (4.0-5.0)

I'm definitely pulling the trigger on a mid grade Flash 139 as well.

Not in any order:
1.) Marvel teamup 55 (nm, raw)
2.) Transformers: Infiltration issues 2 & 4, Retailer Incentive Cover "C" (with trading cards, nm raw)
3.) Transformers Marvel #'s 5-8, Graded 9.6 or Better
4.) Amazing Spiderman #252 (nm, raw)

Waiting for "my price" on some of these...I did get hosed on Xmas eve as I had a a couple lined up for sniper bids and my internet let me down.

It's been a weird end to 2017. I acquired most of my must haves his year...I started collecting in the copper age, so I don't really go after anything prior to copper age with rare exceptions for the right price.

I want to grade several books as well...but need cash and cbcs to get their tats back in control. I will post that "want" list separate.

I spent all of 2017 collecting what I loved. I ended up with a lot more comics than I want to own.

2018 will be mostly back to keys.
Ghost Rider 1 in 9.8 is next up, looking for a decent price on one now.

I'm kinda, sorta interested in this book if the price and condition of the book is right. It's not a heavy hitter. I just think it's kind of neat.

Not in order:
Hulk 180
Hulk 181
Batman 227

The hulk 181 I want a high grade and I’m going to pool all my overtime pay for it. The others I’ll just budget for I guess lol

I'm searching for a cover swipe to complete an entire Secret Wars set. I have every book except Deathmatch #2F




If I can obtain a copy of this book in 2018, that will surely make me smile. I need to clear an entire wall in my home to display this set. It's a lot of books!

Transformers Drift #4 Central Canada Comic Con variant & Transformers Spotlight Orion Pax retailer incentive. The two most elusive books for my TF run. Possibly a GSX #1 after this deployment.

Lol. I'm not even trying to pretend that I won't buy it. The only question is how high quality of a copy do I want?
