Raw BA books you irrationally buy whenever you see them, no matter the grade nor how many copies you already have...

...but ONLY if they're dirt cheap.

Here are two of my many weaknesses...

I currently have 11 Spidey 129`s. All in different grades. Reader copies to near mint. I missed out on this 1 as a kid, it was always beyond my price range, and now when I see one at a show or LCS I grab it. Maybe because now I can afford it.

That is a nice problem to have.   Congrats (and I am not being snarky).  I picked up my first ever copy in January, probably a 4.5, which I think will press up to a 5.0

Black Panther #1-12, and any Kirby Bronze Age Captain America's in the 190's to early 200's.

I probably have a long box full. Also have a 9.8 and 9.6. They won't do a signature series for the author of the first letter in the letters page, which vexes me. :roflmao:image.png

Who’s the author?:popcorn:

Wrong.

It was DC, because FD didn’t exist in 1979 :foryou:

Mostly sentimental.  I bought my first copy for a dime at a small basement thrift store back in the mid 1970s (it's not the copy pictured above, but I do still have it). 

At the time, it was one of the oldest back issues in my collection!  First "Swanderson" art on Supes, too, which makes it roughly similar to the 'Tec 395 in that it introduced a (slightly) new, sleeker look for a franchise-level character, and debuted an era-defining art team as well...
