I’ve gone from 30 books to 7. But it’s hard to stop there. I keep wanting to pick up more and I have to keep reminding myself not to. Ricksneatstuff, im looking at you when I say that

^ That's not nice!

ASM 151 was my first comic, bought it at the local stationery story.

I never really completed any goals.  I used to have a HG Four Color and western collection.  Around 800 books.  After that, I spent a decade collecting only Action Comics.  I had about 85 slabs from #1 through #100.  I never had any of the 4 mega keys, with the exception of the 1st wrap of Action #1  All were 4,0 or better with the exception of #3 and #12.   They were all sold in 2013, and the money was used for a house.  I do still have this, though.

Plus, you know, the house.

I never really set collecting goals, Maybe I should since it would keep me more focus. I finished my Punisher 1987 run now I just need to upgrade a book here & there.

In 2015 I finished off my Caliber Crow 1-4 run sig series.

Currently working on Green Lantern 76-89 & X-Men 94-143!!

Last year I completed my modest goal of collecting every issue of Doom Patrol (plus story appearances in other books) from My Greatest Adventure 80 through to the most recent series. I felt like I was done, but have recently decided to upgrade a few of the lesser SA books to a fine or better, just for my own satisfaction.

That IH3 is my former copy. It used to be a 6.0, but looks like someone pressed it and it’s now a 7.5.

I sold it along with my other 1-6 Hulk CGC SS books 2 years ago so that’s cool that it ended up with another collector who had the same goal!

Have you completed a major collecting goal?  What was it?

Being a Marvel zombie, it was especially gratifying to complete runs of some of the most enjoyable Silver and Bronze age titles.  I had complete runs of Fantastic Four from 1-165 (including slabbed copies of 1-131 plus Annuals 1-7), Journey Into Mystery/Thor from 83-251 and Annuals 1-3, Strange Tales from 101-168 plus Annual 2, Amazing Spider-Man from 2-265 plus Annuals 1-5 (and an AF15, but I never owned a Spidey 1), Conan the Barbarian 1-65 plus Annual 1, Hulk 1-6, and Tales of Suspense 39-99.  I had the opportunity (meaning the age :wink: ) to buy the books in these runs published from 1972-1976 when they were new.
