I don't want to brag, but cashiers are always checking me out. power_struggle55 private msg quote post Address this user
it depends.

99% of it is in a temperature storage unit so dont really. the #1 i have in my place is my graded (which I do like looking over), anything I need to read (so yeah) or plan on grading eventually (same as graded)

Never. I have a few unopened MCS sub packages. The opened ones are in a pile on top of short boxes. I need to go through and purge, but I need time that I don’t have.

Do the other books count that are also in the piles? I looked at them when I opened them? If so then every few months.

Down to around 4,000 raw and 250 graded. Going to try to whittle down to just the 4 or 5 figure books. I have maybe 60 of those, and keep the stuff not valuable enough to sell, like the Savage Sword of Conan run.
65 years old now, hope to be done by age 70.
I look at them all the time, read different ones regularly. I will always have boxes of coverless to read. Currently keeping all the shipping boxes mailed to me, for future reuse.

I have 4 short boxes, 1 long box and about 110 or so graded comics. I go through at least a few of the graded comics most days and read a few raws maybe once every week or 2. Pretty busy with job, house and 3 kids so I don't get as much time as I want with them. There's never enough time in a day!

When I retire I want to reno a proper comic room to display them more prominently so I don't have to dig through boxes to look at them, a room with no windows and only LED lights.

And no plumbing above / areas for external water intrusion ;-)

@earthshaker01 Great stuff you have there that’s actually the direction I’d like to go in with my collection sell off all my raws and lesser slabs and have maybe a box or two of graded major keys. Much easier to manage.

This kept be in a lower more manageable quantity (5000-ish books)with substantially higher value, than if I had collected the same books in lower grade with no focus. I would have ended up with too many books I didn't care about. Just my way of collecting. Here is a few pics of the crap I collected.

It was a one trick pony show but always hilarious. GAC private msg quote post Address this user
I moved my slabs from comic boxes to cabinet/book shelf. They're more accessible now so easier to add slabs or look at them when I want to. The cabinet has a glass window in the door so I blacked it out with bristol board using painters tape. The slabs are all upright.
