Group Shots: Logical/Themed Groupings of Books in your Collection15213

Collector GAC private msg quote post Address this user
Let's see group shots of your comics.

It can be:
- books from the same title
- same character, different title
- same books/covers or not
- themed books: ex. black covers, time travel, space, dinosaurs, whatever.

Anything goes, as long as its a group shot (two books or more) and there's logic as to why they're grouped together.

If its not immediately obvious why they're grouped together, let us know.

I’m usually just a reader and don’t post to often. I was going to post about my impulse buy when it happened back in May but I talked myself out of posting, even after I typed it all out. I didn’t think that it came across as all that interesting.

That being said. I was at an auction, feeding my comic addiction back in May. The auction was over and I was collecting my winnings when the auctioneer spoke on the mike and said there was another box that was under a table and he wanted to get rid of it. He said X-men and I raise my hand and bought it “sight unseen”. I was the only bidder. It turned out to be 95 copies of all the same book.

I know that I will be selling them but I’m not ready to get into the selling side of things just yet because of all the stuff I have read about eBay and because I just don’t have the time.

But here’s a photo of what my wife says is my favorite X-men. (It’s not)

All were bagged but I am rebagging and boarding. I won’t treat them any different than my other newly acquired comics.

Has anyone else found a box like this? What did you do with your find?

Thanks GAC...you beat me to the punch posting New gods, so I had to go with something else I had a few lying around of.


Your collection is amazing as well. You have taken the time to slab yours....makes for a rather impressive display of comics. Thanks for sharing them

Seeing @GAC's group shot of CBCS and CGC labels together sure makes a striking image for the label debate. Every single time, with CBCS I saw the comic book first and then went to the grade...With CGC I saw the grade first and then confirmed what the comic book was. I can see where the White background would appeal more if I were a collector of modern 9.8's. But I collect older books often at 2.5-7.0, so the idea of highlighting the grade just has absolutely no appeal to me.
