#3 Lady Death set in the registry

Can't afford to keep her! Well, it's been a while since I posted in my journal, and I must say, it was fun when I had the money to do it. I did once have the #1 set for 4 years in a row, until CGC expanded the set type to go to 2002...and that's what pushed me down. So...I lost some interest in the "ol girl" and was considering liquidating her, along with all the other doubles and slightly lower graded that I have. Just wondering what would be a fair price. Does anyone think that $3k is too m

Iron Man and Sub-Mariner # 1

This is my "pet" comic book. I can find a reason to like ANY comic book, but this particular Issue was one that I could not afford when I was a young boy. I vowed that one day that I was going to own at least one. And keep it forever. This IMSM was a "true" one-shot - it was never intended to go to Issue # 2. Marvel Comics had just obtained permission to add extra titles to their Statements of Publications, so they gave Captain America and the Hulk their own titles immediately. But Marvel could

The feeling is like a peak of a rollercoaster

...and now time for the ride! I tell ya, it's something to attain #1 over the years of collecting, especially with a series that has more than 4 issues and a vast of varients. It was a learning experience, and expensive one also. MARVEL MADNESS, your a great person, and thank you for your offers on comics on LADY DEATH. You unknownly set a goal for me, and I attained that goal. It's funny, I finish up my collection just as I finish up my career in the Air Force. All the best to you and yo

Moving forward again...slowly

Got bags! Got boards! The process begins... Okay, now keep in mind, I have really bad rheumatoid arthritis. I've had it for close to 30 yrs. (I was diagnosed w/ it as a kid. It happens.) So, if my progress seems slow, you'll know why. Bagging/boarding has begin. I have a box, too. I?d say, I probably have over a hundred possibly more) Incredible Hulk comics to go through. So far I?ve bagged/boarded about 20. ! I?m slow!!   Well, I hit my first snag already. Since I am such a newbie, I did

Giant Size Topless Slumber Party No, I still don't give a mess about current Marvel releases, I just like making fun of them. Moving on. I haven't written a journal since January, so it's time to get back in the saddle. The past 5ish months have been a busy time in my own little corner of the collecting world. Initially I had planned to take a decent spending break after telling my C2E2 budget to go sit in the corner and stay quiet while I splurge on Silver Age X-Men. But as it turned out, i

Goals for my CGC Registry sets in 2008

The year already half way through and I just realized I never set a goal for my collection for this year! Goals I set for myself in my CGC Registry set to be completed before the end of the year: 1) Increase the number of double cover ASMs in my registry set by 5 books. The current count in 2007 is 14 books. My stretch goal will be 6 additional books to make it an even 20. 2) Increase my standing in my ASM set to #40. I'm going to try to do this with only double covers. 3) Start to

Re-bagging & Boarding completed ? Finally!!!

Well, it took a lot longer than I thought it would, but I've done it! I've bagged/boarded all my old Incredible Hulk books. I now have a clearer sense of my inventory... It took a lot longer than I thought it would. Given the fact that I physical limitations, the task probably took longer for me than it would for anyone else. Also, I was taking the time to scan the covers into my PC as I bagged/boarded, which slowed things down. This became too tedious, however. In the interest of finishing th

Comic collection has grown.

When is a good time to grade? I believe if you like it preserve it. In the past 12 month I have acquired around 180 comics. A pretty wide verity to say the least. X-men #3 lately at an antique mall. A 1951 Don Winslow from a local hole in the wall which is a pretty interesting place to visit to an issue 92 of The Walking Dead. I was intrigued with it because it was the first full appearance Jesus. I also acquired a Savage Dragon and a Spider-man with President Obama on the cover. Sending in

Punisher Limited Series

Had to do it... I was getting ready for Phoenix Con six months ago and saw that Mike Zeck was gonna be there. What do I have in my collection that he could sign? Oh yeah...the Punisher Limited Series! Overall I was happy with the grades and I think the books look awesome in the new new cases. I like the Punisher but I'm not in love with him so at some point I'm gonna need to part ways with this set. Until then I will enjoy having it in my collection! *** To see old comments for this Jo

Comics, Comics, Comics, & more comics

Collect, buy, sell, trade, & so on & so on..... I have been collecting comics since 1975-76, and have a pretty extensive collection. Altough my main collection is Marvel, I have had & do have many other titles {DC, EC, Valiant, Image, etc...). I have been doing the eBay thing now since June of 2001, and before that have been buying, selling, tradeing at local shows in Mich. I guess that's about it for now. I'll add more later. Have a great day! =0)

Wow! Best presented Set 2006

Never even saw this coming. Thanks CGC for the award. I apologize for being so late in responding back to thank you guys at CGC for this honor. I just got back from South America and I saw this manila envelope from CGC. I was scratching my head when I saw it because I was trying to remember had I submitted any recent comics for grading. I was drawing a blank! Anyway I open it up and to my surprise this is what I receive. An award for Best Presented Set 2006. And for my favorite comic title "Ul

Are CGC books getting harder to get?

Just a few thoughts about collecting CGC books. When I first started collecting the CGC;s it seemed as the prices would never stop going up. Now the prices seem better but, more collectors are in. My problem is that I don't have the money to compete with some of you. My solution is, to take my time and buy stuff raw to get graded or even buy lower grades. The CGC has made this more fun than ever. I love the registry and plan to join as a paying member soon. I don't know if I will try a

Civil War

Here I come going for the top spot. I know alot of people are into getting older comics and filling in spots in there collcetions of bronze, silver, and gold age comics. Unfortunatley that can be very expensive and not everyone has comics that go back that far sitting around waiting to be graded plus they are very hard to find. Now me on the other hand I have decided to go for what I already have a ton of and is a much smaller set than some of these huge runs of comics that date back before
