Old Collector, New to Slabbing

I collected comics from 1987 to 1993. In that period of time, I managed to get quite a bit of current issues, and grew my back issue inventory quite well. My pride and joy is the Uncanny X-Men 94-300 with a Giant Size #1.

I managed to have fairly large runs, New Mutants, X-Factor, Flash vol2, and limited series's out the wazoo..

Then I joined the USMC and everything got stuck in storage. Roughly 3300 comics and graphic novels.

Fast forward to 4 months ago, I grabbed all 12 of my long boxes and started putting them into a database, (online database didn't exist in my day, a red binder with 3 hole punch paper was my database)

After seeing that my collection I paid roughly $5000 for, I eventually saw a total value of about $24,000. Nice..

So seeing as how I just came back to collecting, I learned about the crash from the 90's, and the birth of CGC. After much deliberating, I submitted my first book. Uncanny X-men #94. I purchased it for $100 originally. A unfortunate side note about this particular issue, is that it is signed by Chris Claremont and Bob Mcleod, pre-CGC, which means that this book doesn't qualify for SS, which is kind of a bummer. But the graders notes do indicate that it is signed, even if the label doesn't.
