I achieved my slightly awesome goal of owning 10 Spider-Man #252's before the end of the year.

Just curious - why so many?  Variants?

When I get a new key I tend to want to get multiple copies for some reason. 

And as for variants- 9 newsstands, one direct.

My biggest achievement was finding the elusive Merry Marvel Marching Society Certificate which was signed by Stan Lee and sent to individuals that created an M.M.M.S. club of at least 6 members. I ended up selling it to a CGC employee. To me, the hunt is the best part and now I can look again for it.

I corrected a misspelled word.

I got back into comics about 5 years ago. I got out my old photojournals and made a list of my 100 favorite covers. My goal was to own all of them. Not keep all of them. My wife did not want me to spend our money so I pulled out a few of the best comics I had from when I collected in the early 90’s and sold them for 5k.  That’s all the money I put in.  

Five years later, a couple weeks ago, I got the last comic on the list that I never owned, Detective 31, and now have traded it for books I gave up in the process that are even better (to me). I traded for more than these two but these are the favorites.

Great books! Good solid copies

:gossip:There’s a Science 2 in the current CC auction.

What a coincidence! I just traded a Science 2, All Top 16 and others for my my favorite all-time golden age book. Something I thought I would never own, but now I do! 

Appreciate it!
