Started collecting in the mid 1970s in the south Chicago suburbs. Did three paper routes to fund my obsession back then but then got into sports and took a looooong break around 1979. Held on to my books over those years, keeping track of them and rebagging/boarding them along the way. In 2014, was considering selling the collection and found these boards-- and got the collecting bug again but with a better focus. Primarily a Marvel silver and bronze age collector with a side interest in Jack Kirby DC books. Really enjoy learning more about the hobby and meeting the fine folks on this board.
