There's lots more but I'm getting tired.  I'll post more tomorrow if there's interest   zzz

Please do. I like reading about the history of our hobby. Thanks for posting this. I didn't discover the Comics Buyers Guide until 1984 and I think I have almost every issue from then until it ceased publication. I'd just wish that I had known about it in the 70's. Prior to the CBG the only way I knew of to get back issues back then was through ads in Overstreet.

Thanks for posting that @Senormac.  It was a very interesting read.  I didn't really know very much about Alan Light before this thread.

Thanks for posting again Senormac.

Alan had (or still has?) a good outlook on life - hate no one, and enjoy life and your job, even if it doesn't pay what you wish it would. That is what I got from reading this article about him.  I view life along the same lines. I had a professor 30 years ago that once said "Life is too short to hate someone" and that kind of stuck with me. I am not giving up my time by wasting it on hate or anger. 

It is too bad that Alan is still not a part of the comic society today, at least as far as I know.

It would be really interesting to get Alan's take on the CGC/ grading thing and current prices....

I think he really HAS gone on to better things and is probably making a lot more $$$ too. Unless he had a collection of books somewhere he probably does not have too much interest in the past.  Oh sure.... we would all love it, but I guess it's unlikely
