Been looking for this book in 9.4, and I literally have not seen one in 2+ years.

Hahaha.  I've been collecting Silver Age for over 20 years, but took a break for a while and got serious about (re-)assembling my runs in early 2017.  I've had very good luck with my X-Men quest but for some reason have never seen 9.4 copies of #15, #16, or #17 available in the wild.

Replaced my copy. Most of Steranko’s Marvel covers would apply here, but this is one of the first I think of!

Though not a classic cover. I've always loved the look of this cover. Typical cover what DC were doing in the 60s. Finally picked up a copy during this summers convention circuit.

This is the epitome of 1960's comic covers:

I have the Asgard Press version of this poster, signed by Steranko and professionally framed, I like it that much!

Cool Peter Panda.  It's amazing that you kept it that way after buying it off the newstandl  There are a zillion copies of the Millie book compared to the Peter Panda comic.

I'm curious -- at the time you bought those comics, did you consciously think of yourself as a collector?  I'm always fascinated to learn how and when it began to dawn on people that these were treasures worth preserving.

Sheesh, when I was a kid you had to swap 2 Charltons, Gold Keys or Harveys for a Marvel comic.

I think this greytone deserves an honorable mention (or at the very least a second peek):
