Thanks for the info on Lightshot.  Your Jimmy collection reminds me of how I screwed up in the 60s by not getting all the early issues.  Now I have to wait for deals on ebay or at comic shops.  That's another sad story from the Tricolor files...:pullhair:

Yeah we all have those stories, I remember a house auction sale in the 1970s, buying bundles of 10 issues of 60s DC comics when I could have had 5 issues of 1950s or 3 issues of 1940s for the same price, I was always greedy and at the time quantity beat quality any day :cry:

Starting at the Bronze age and working back instead of starting with Golden age and working forward, oh the money we could have saved lol 

We all should be happy to have great collections but we are never satisfied as someone always has something else that we desire :insane:

I know...it is what it is.  I'm happy with what I have, but still have a want list like everyone else.  Oh, and don't be fooled by those tiny pics...some of my Jimmy's are absolutely horrible.  lol  For example, I take great pride in knowing my #43 is the worst Circle 8 issue on the planet... :roflmao:

My collection is all over the place condition wise, here in the UK before the days of ebay there was not a lot of choice and I had to take what I could find, I have some nice stuff but if I needed it I would accept almost anything complete.

My 43 is a match for yours  :roflmao:
