C-Link Win - Major Grail!

I'm in the process of putting together my personal list of GGA grails.  Books that are the true pinnacles of GGA, the ones that have an impact on me for one reason or another.  The list is subjective of course.  My list will no doubt include comics that would be on everyone's list (what we all would agree are classic covers), but I'm sure I'll have some comics that aren't on many want lists.  That's okay.  The point of this is to be my personal list.

I'm hoping by making the list, I can focus my collecting efforts.  This project started when I looked at the 2 big piles of golden age GGA that I've bought over the last couple years.  Of those comics -- probably a couple hundred books -- only a handful are ones I really, really like.  The others I'm happy to have, but I'd be willing to trade all of them for 1 or 2 books on my grail list.  So that's what I'm trying to do.  Focus on grails and cut back on buying books I only like so-so.

As it happens, one of my grails was in this month's ComicLink auction, Millie the Model #2.  I like the simple art without any word balloons or lettering other than the title.  Only 1.5 but I think it presents well.  I probably paid too much, but I can't remember the last time I saw a copy.

If You List It They Will Come - Mister Mystery #6

As I mentioned, I'm putting together my personal list of GGA grails.  As I do this, some of my grails are appearing for sale.  It's like Field of Dreams, but with comics instead of baseball players.  First Millie #2 (above), and now an even bigger grail -- a much bigger grail for me -- Mister Mystery #6.  I won this last week on eBay.  I watched the seconds count down.  We've all been there I'm sure.  You get to 5 seconds and all the bidnapper bids come in (I can't complain as I use bidnapper as well for most of my eBay auctions).  I expected to lose, but I won, with a whole $12 of room to spare to my max bid.  Now if only some of those Marvel Mysteries on my grail list show up on eBay I'll be a happy man.
