I have a veritable cornucopia of comics, and I've been schlepping them all over the world.
Back in June we finally settled on a place to live after a year of aimless wondering, stuff comes out of storage, comic boxes go into the basement. Too many comic boxes. So I think, "what's the point?" I don't follow anything anymore, I'm never gonna go back and read em. The ones I love I know by heart and why have ones that I don't love?
So I hatched this idea to finish my X-Men run and sell ALL (meaning most) of the rest. I don't need much:
3, 65, 69, 70, 72, 73, 75, 76, 77, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 91 and a handful in the 500s. Giant size #1 and Hulk #181 aren't "in" the run, but ... seems I should add those too
I was kinda shocked when I made this list. I've been picking up odds and ends over the years without much of a plan. Stumble on a high grade book priced below value? Grabbed it. Wasn't very aggressive about it, or even organized, Just chipped away at it. I even have some SA books I got out of the ¢5 bin (back in the 80s). Unfortunately they marked the covers with a marker ...
So here's the plan:
I'm slabbing all my high quality doubles and selling them. If that goes well I'll attack the non X-men titles (Pretty typical hodgepodge for a marvel fan late 70's early 80s - Avengers, FF, Spiderman). There are some random SA books, but not much high grade. So even though I don't need a lot of books, I'm going to have to sell a ton of em to get high grade. I'm kinda vaguely considering upgrading the grade of some books I own ... but first, finish
