  1. I went for JIM/Thor as well...but figured there was always time to get 83. Nope. But I have all but ~5 issues from 84-200. That is a great run....and they were dirt cheap for so long in the 90s when I was putting the run together. I did complete FF 1-100. My #1 literally has a band-aid on the back cover sealing a rip. But hey...it's complete and it's in the collection!
  2. I started collecting in 1985. Friend of mine in my dorm in college asked if I wanted to go to the comic book store. One of the first books I bought was X-Men 201 or 202...something like that. One thing lead to another and I ended up with the full run 1-350 or something around there. But it was issues 94-141 that I was focused on completing in the early days. What run did you first complete??
  3. At 1672 copies in 9.8 and selling at about $400-$450 a copy, I suspect this can't last. Anyone think there is more room for this book? Sometime in the early 90's I got a couple copies from a guy who had a stack of them at WonderCon in SF. Essentially NM-MT...something like $10 or less. But that was a long time ago.
  4. Not a great photo...but you get the idea. 16 copies...bought them ages go. Sunk some cash for grading, but it will work out in the end. There are a lot of people with a lot of high grade copies. I wonder when will this market saturate?
  5. 3.5-4 IMHO...love that cover...all time classic.
  6. Picked this up today at a local con. Got home and got to wondering if maybe this was trimmed. Impossible to really see in scans, but the edges on the cover right, top and bottom do exhibit some "Marvel chipping". Book also has slight rust and slight rust migration. Main question is...was this trimmed? Either way...first thing I did when I got home was read it. Fun book!
  7. I give you my copy of FF1...not far from the one here!
  8. Tonight on Heritage. https://comics.ha.com/itm/silver-age-1956-1969-/fantastic-four-1-marvel-1961-condition-fr/a/121840-11469.s?ic4=GalleryView-Thumbnail-071515
  9. I don't have that book, but I did find it here: http://pangolinbasement.blogspot.com/2013/12/toth-danger-trail-3-battle-flag-of.html Great site to look at scans of Toth's work.
  10. FF1-100 (but broken up at the moment since I got rid of 2 and 3) this one is lower grade...took about 3-4 years or less. I probably will not complete it with 2 and 3 again...thinking of getting rid of FF5. Conan 1-200 and beyond...still intact X-Men1-400 (I don't have #1 any more though...so 2-400) this one took about 15 years Almost have a complete JIM/Thor run from 83 to 200...but missing 83 and maybe 5 others. I think I was close to a complete Dr. Strange run from ST110 thru the Colan/Brunner series...but I got rid of ST110...so no more. I can't hold on to books when they get too valuable...too many other cool things out there!
  11. Hi...two more copies from my "mini-hoard" of Eternals #1 books. To be clear...these are different copies than the ones I am offering on the "board only" sale area. Eternals #1 CGC 9.4 $190 Buy-it-Now $7.25 USPS Priority shipping Eternals #1 CGC 9.6 $320 Buy-it-Now $7.25 USPS Priority shipping Thanks for looking!
  12. I actually picked this copy up in Mt View, California at Big Guys comics sometime around 2000. It was $300 pre CGC. I didn’t intend on selling, but once a book gets crazy I tend to move on. If only I knew!!
  13. Sold my CGC 9.6 copy for $2850 in the early 2000's. Doh!!
