Merry Christmas to all, and I appreciate the collectors out there who do accumulate things. In the end, they do help the hobby, as they take better care of things than a lot of amateur small time collectors do. It is a significant investment of time and money to research and buy the best storage materials. It is much easier now than when I began, so things are different now.

With Superior Spider-man causing me to shake my head... debating about selling off 101-Current (-122, 123, 129) and all my duplicates below 100 to chase another AF15...

 

Hmm

I did a sell off similar to the above to purchase an AF15 and have no regrets. Make sure you keep 121 which I think is a seminal book...besides Gwen was way hotter than MJ. lol

True - I meant 121 and 122 not 122 and 123

 

I would probably keep my 101 and 149 just because as well and just sell of the lower graded copies...

I have owned (and sold) 5 copies of AF #15 over the 25 years I've been collecting Silver & Golden Age books. I bought my 1st copy when I was 15 years old. It was a 1.8 that I paid $350 for from my LCS. The best copy I ever had was the Daniel Erwine Copy that I bought from John Verzyl back in 1991. He graded it VF/NM back then, CGC graded it 7.5 in 2001.

 

Here are a few old scans of 3 of them.

Just got this one two weeks ago. I have posted this on a some other threads so I figured I'd officially join the club. This ones attached at the staples with cream to off white pages. I think its between Good and VG. What do you think? Only need #1 and 15 for my ASM run.

I love Spidey's protruding chest on the cover. Kinda like "I'm a badass so come and get me bad guys." lol

My 3.0 SS has been sold so alas, remove me from that list.

 

I just submitted a raw AF15 though and am hoping for a 4.0. I'll keep you posted.

 

:thumbsup: Done.

 

And best wishes for at least a 4.0 down in Sarasota land. :wishluck:
