No worries, it's a learning proess. Thanks, I had quite a few more but sold them to go after Golden Age. I'm buying them back now.

Unfortunately I sold my 39 eons ago to chase gold. I’m back to building SA Marvel runs again (why did I ever leave??) and hope to get another copy soon. For now my run starts at 40.

That is a nice looking #40.  Was your #39 in about the same shape?  I just sold my #39 a couple of weeks ago because it had been trimmed and the staples were replaced (not by me). I bought it at WonderCon 12 years ago and didn’t notice it was restored until it came back from CGC with a purple label.  The plan was to put the money in savings and save up for a low grade universal to replace it, but I saw a Venus #19 for sale and couldn’t resist.  I hope a 2.0 isn’t $10,000 in a year or two.

Here's a small start. I'll have to dig my run out. I think I've got 39-66 or so (can't quite remember where the run stops) but I love these two together.

Thanks! No, my 39 was a mid grade copy, around 5.0. Bought before the days of CGC for $250...:cry:

Sorry to hear about the undisclosed restoration on your 39, I hate those stories. Nice pick up on the Venus with the funds though, what a cover!

What badass Golden Age book did you get with the money from Iron Man?  On an unrelated note:  I have a feeling the Willie Lumpkin prototype is going to take off in the future.  Buy one now while you still can.

The start of my TOS Iron Man related run. Number 47 has special meaning to me because it's one of the few books I have left from my teenage collecting days in the early 90s.

Ha.  Mr. Doll.  I think he’s about ready for a reboot.  Maybe he’ll be the villian in Iron Man 4.  Who’s the worst villian: Mr. Doll or the Unicorn?  #56 was also weird because Pepper went from being mousy and unattractive to being hot in the span of two panels.  Quite the make over.
