Like they always are from one year to the next...buy every golden/silver/bronze age comic in NM+/MINT or graded in 9.8 white! .....Let's Dream(Hallucinate) Big I say! .....
...Now on a more realistic level per my income...Will shoot for Silver Surfer in 9.4 White and Conan #1 in 9.6 White...Also Doc Savage #2 in 9.8 White (Marvel from the 70's that only ran 8 issues).  
There are several more books but those are the tops ones for now and will involve me selling some books to help pay for these. 

:shy: what issue of Silver Surfer?

In 2020 I plan on working on my Thanos set(s), and continue to increase the Marvel Picture Frame census 🙂

Id like a new sketch from someone at C2E2 (Havent decided who), crime suspenstories 20 (its becoming a book that might price me out), weird science-fantasy 29 (again this one is getting up there) and out of price range is $300 plus...I just cant at the moment.

My goal would be to sell every last comic and exit the hobby

Been fun, but time to move on

Why have you decided to move on?

My collection is always at risk of fire/flood/theft. I am looking forward to retiring someday

I could not absorb that loss without a negative impact on my retirement nest egg

I have moved to an asset less prone to risk, a second home

While the same risks remain, the value of the home lies mostly with the land it sits on

(Can't say enough good things about this gentleman as a seller btw)

New goal is clear out the hall closet we use for seasonal decorations and move all that stuff to the garage so I can claim the closet for my comics. And a complete inventory of the series I’m still working on completing

After not being able to hit any conventions last year due to work travel my collection didn't grow at all last year so my goals this year are pretty mundane.

 

  • I would like to add 25 books to my X-Men V2 collection.
  • I really need to sell off a short box of CGC golden age under copies that have been collecting dust.
  • There are some various Defiant, Malibu, and Ultraverse variant books i've been looking to pick up.

 

I'm sure this year i'll also add to my sketch and comic art collection but do not have anything anything attainable on the radar yet.
