Duplicates anyone?

Entry posted by richard8158 · - 428 views

This has been a really great year for adding to and upgrading my GI Combat set. Possibly as many as 30 upgrades this year alone. The one pictured is the latest one. A really nice 1961 Kubert cover. The downside is that I have many very nice graded duplicates now and I'm really not sure what to do with them. Sure, I could sell them, but would much rather trade for someone else's extras. And I pretty much don't care what they are! As kids growing up in the 50s and 60s we read everything, but war comics were big. We read Superman, Batman and Hawkman too along with many others. Spidey came later. Can I be the only collector with duplicate graded copies? Here are some of my extras:


Thanks for reading and looking!

I love G.I. Combat ! your duplicates are better than my keeper copies, someday i may go for the 1-100 run ! it's so tempting but i don't even want to start it yet,

i applaud you for you registry set !

i really like the 1-44 issues run (not sure if too many other people do though)

I think issue #1 might be one of the most violent covers ever depicted

i love the grey tone issues and #76 (man vs tank cover i think its #76) is my second favorite war cover of all time!! 

my all time favorite war cover is my avatar:smile:
