Science Fiction convention program covers (B&W art and layout from decades ago)...







Not sure that this falls under the "cool" classification, but the ink is dry.

This house was around the corner from my favorite restaurant. It's been in Guiness as the skinniest in the world. I believe it was built on a dare.

Anyone good at building Legos? My wife got a ton of them from her sister for me.

This one looks like the Batmobile, a Star Wars vehicle for sure, and who knows what else?
I have another bag full of stuff and it looks like the Pirates of the Caribbean ship.

Don't know if I want to try and put them back together or just sell the lot as is.

@MutantMania Legos are a big hit in our house. Here's a table I built for my oldest.

Grabbed some Swamp Thing readers at an antique store for cheap, and found this when I got home. Well worth $1.95!

If I only knew then what I know now. Here are two catalogs from Pacific Comics circa 1974 and 1975. Check out some of these prices (but the minimum wage back them was like $1.50 an hour).

@GAC - Angelo, I included that yellow page from 1974 just for you. It would have cost you $9.00 for an Action Comics #252, but only $2.50 for #242.

Two volume slip-cased edition of Captain America #1-10 (S&K) which was pulled immediately after release when it was discovered that the colorist had inserted naughty bits into the interior art reconstruction (bought this on the day of release)...

The top tier of my wedding cake. I'm a big dr who fan from the old series and my wife is a fan of the new. Now I didn't ask for a tardis wedding cake so I was surprised to see it for the first time on my wedding day. Anyway the cake wasn't the best tasting so we never ate the top tier at our 1st anniversary. Also it was in the freezer at the parents in laws and there was a power outage the first year. Well after years of my mother in law telling my wife to get rid of it. 6 years later yesterday we unwrapped it and moved it to the compost bin šŸ‘

Dude. Do it. Are they a bunch of cards? Maybe I could contribute to the cost a bit for a couple of cards so it eases the pain of cracking the box??? Are they trading cards or larger? Sorry I can't tell scale by the pic.

@HeinzDad

They are regular trading cards. The box is 36 packs of 10 cards each. Best I can tell these are the first series of cards? My will power is running low, so I'm sure the box will get cracked this weekend. If there is anything in particular you are interested in, let me know.

Id split them with you if you let me open my half. If I get a signed one I'll send it to you. There are people here that would back my word on that I think. I want the joy of opening at least 4 packs. You don't have to do any of this but send me pics!!!!!

For any Happy Gilmore fans out there. I finished this today and I'll be sending it to my friend for his upcoming bday. I might try to add some ink to a copy I made, but I'm sure it'll be a disaster.

I preordered this but don't have it yet. But thought this was a pretty darn cool cover.

It is a detective comics 1027 peach variant.
