What if the person that “finds” you turns out to be your killer?

I will look for you. I will find you. And I will nick your comics.

You collect a run of Gambit?...personally I would only invest in Uncanny Xmen 266.

And I've never heard of those other comics,are any graded?

I’m not selling the comics unless I have to for one reason or another. I’ll leave a note for my family to come here and ask which ones are junk and which ones aren’t if I pass away. No fun selling off all your favorite things to prepare for your death

What a way to prepare for the inevitable...the only comfort in death would be the preservation of those you love and the stuff you found love in while you lived.

In the next couple of years I have three traveling goals.

An extended road trip crisscrossing the country

An extended vacation of six to nine months in Central America

The Path of Saint James.

Having an extensive collection hinders those things. That's one reason I'm downsizing.

My personal collection was converted into mutual funds when my children were young and has served them both well.
They can completely cover their education if they choose to be fiscal if not then the rest is on them.

Now I just sell for fun and occasionally to my IRAs.

Why wouldn't you just put it in your last will and testament that you want the books to be buried with you..?

If I drop dead unexpectedly, my wife will probably be giving the stuff away (she's already said she "doesn't want to deal with it") so stayed tuned to the obits in Louisville for some good deals!

Wait, this is much easier!

In true Willy Wonka-esque fashion I will hold a mysterious 3-day sale on the boards with an assortment of breathtaking Bronze Age Gold Key comics priced at a princely $5 per comic with each (established) boardie only allowed to purchase one comic. There will be a total of 33 comics and inside one of them will be hidden a glorious Golden Ticket with the lucky recipient inheriting my legendary and (near) priceless comic collection.

wait...who are the 33 established board members going to be?

The 33 comics will appear at random intervals over 3 days. The first boardie to hit :takeit:will receive the comic and a chance at the Golden Ticket, with no boardie allowed to claim more than one of the comics. The reason I said established boardies only was to stop the inevitable frenzy of new accounts as everyone clamored to claim one (or more) of the comics potentially containing the fabled Golden Ticket.

Now I just have to come up with a criteria for determining what makes a boardie established. :tonofbricks:

Thanks! With any luck this contest won't be happening for a looooong time. Check back in this thread in fifty years or so for further updates.

While reading this thread it got me thinking (at least for a minute or so) some of the members have mentioned online auctions and such and I was wondering if there was any UK auction houses? :bigsmile:

If I'm well enough in 10 years, I may sell the collection slowly over time. (We are talking about 18,000 comics)...so may take awhile. However, I told my wife if it's still here when I'm gone, she can do whatever she wants with the collection. She already knows what she's going to do with it, and won't tell me. :cry:

What I do know is she plans on selling the house, moving into an apartment and won't have the collection when she's ready to move.
