I had a NM copy of that one and gave it away on the boards before the show. Can't win 'em all!

Only the second copy I’ve ever had and both came from flea markets. I bought one years ago for fifty cents. Today, I had to pay double that.

Oh yeah.........newsstand!

Little bit more than a dollar, but was shocked to find this in a box of unbagged random magazines

I bought 90 books from one guy 15/$10. These were the highlights. 

Edit : Actually I think the Cap cane from someone else, but still.....

Just a sample of my haul from HeroesCon last weekend, starting with the $1 or less books

I love finding Showcase 96 #3 in dollar boxes, but who’s putting an X-men 142 there?

It was in one of the first boxes I looked through on Friday morning, along with the #136.  Both are a little beat up but still had no business being in a $1 box.  I bought about 2 long boxes of $1 or less books on Friday and Sunday.  Lots of good $0.50 and $0.25 books on Sunday near the end of the show.
