These are all very cool ( not to mention Perry’s is sentimental ).  Mine would be a toss up between these two

I'm a very small time gun collector,

Entalmighty1, just today I got in the mail my usual Heritage Auction lit, and they are honest to goodness selling meteorites. Look at what someone made from a meteorite . . .

Would have to be original Schulz art. I have had a lot of it, going back to the early 90's. I let go of one of the best pieces of all-time but I still have this one and I like it especially because it is exactly the kind of conversations I have with my wife on a regular basis.

I don't really collect anything at present, so I don't own it anymore.  But this is the title-page to Shakespeare's only all-fantasy play from the original 1632 Second Folio.  Not as expensive as you might think, but still... it's rare that I miss anything I've parted with, but I kinda do on this one.

Whoa! You knew him when, huh?

Not personally.  It was lifted by someone who worked at the Bursar office at Yale out of his graduate school file. He brought it home and upon his passing ended up with his daughter.  I got it via auction many moons ago.  The Fonz was my probably my first “ superhero “ 👍🏻😃

That Winkler letter is historic!  And David before he was Davey?  So cool

Historic because I bet none of us has seen an actual hand written letter in about 20-30 years :roflmao:

In a nutshell ,  he’s Making a financial  aid payment at Yale to the Bursar office. His student ID number is attached. It looks like he paid it early by the notation made on the right hand side in black marker. He seems to have a relationship with this individual as he writes that he is going to be a part of a mid season television series starting after the first of the year.  A show called Happy Days where he plays a character named Fonzie.

Very cool thread idea.

For me it would be my one page of Kirby art.  Kirby's art is what drew me into comics, I just couldn't resist the cover to Fantastic Four #50.

It's not one thing, but I love my complete set of original Mars Attacks cards more than any comic I have. 

I thought about my set as well. How can you not love those cards.

Really depends on condition.  I have been trying to upgrade my sent to 7.0 or higher.  I need to upgrade 12 cards to be there.  All said and done I think it will cost about $8k.

Wow such great stuff so far. I think I’m torn by either the holy grail, king tuts tomb or the Mona Lisa (the original not the fake that’s hanging in the louvre museum in Paris)...:devil:
