Is there a book out there that you'd consider dropping a pile of money outside your budget if it ever came around?

ASM 1 and IH 181 would intrigue me if it came around at the right time and grade. Of course it would depend on my finances around that time but I might drain my funds if the opportunity presented itself.

In the past it would have been Rawhide Kid #1, Kid Colt Outlaw #1 or any of the JIM/ST 1-20 issues I need, however...

As I have gotten older I no longer have the desire to spend money on comic books, it just does not excite me as it used to and I feel the prices have become outrageous (is it because I became "that old guy"?), at this point I cannot even see myself spending $25.00 for any book.

Relative to my means, there are no key books I would even consider putting myself out for at present.

Ridiculously expensive, and I’m not competing with frantic speculators.

This.

i really like readers at this point A lot of 7.0ish readers. I like reading comics in their original form. So I would just go to town and build a massive reader collection.

Fantastic Four 115, 116, 117, 119, 120, 124, 136, 147, 179, 214, 223
Fantastic Four Annual 12, 14, 16
Giant Size Super Stars 1
Giant Size Fantastic Four 3, 5, 6

These aren't keys, really (although 120 might be now), but if they come up for sale in CGC 9.8 (or higher) with white pages, I will pay more than anyone else.

I would probably spend a small fortune for a decent copy of Action Comics #1 in hopes of turning it into a large fortune.
