So this topic should be 2 pieces max per poster. I'm sure there are people out there where one page will cover both criteria.

My oldest published piece is this John Buscema page from Thor 216 (1973)

The piece I have owned the longest is this Phil Jimenez Wonder Woman page from 174 (2001), which I bought new. This is about the fourth page I ever bought and the earlier pages have since been traded.

My collection just began last year, so my "longest owned" piece is from a little more than a year ago.

And my "oldest piece" is from Classics Illustrated "Robinson Crusoe" from 1957, colored at some point.

The first piece that started me collecting I unfortunately trade many years ago. The piece I have owned the longest is the first piece of comic art I purchased which is X-Men #160 by Brent Anderson and Bob Wiacek.

 

 

My oldest piece is about 100 years old.

Jael -Sunday Newspaper Supplement in New York World by Dan Smith
I think this was published in New York World sometime around 1920. His originals are rare and this is on of the best I have seen and BIG this one is 22x28.

Yup, one of the pieces that I love but has zero nostalgia. Its hanging in my living room. I recommend people do some goggling and CAF on Dan Smith. He was a great artist, very little of his originals still exist.
