Wow, these upgrades to 9.0's make me realize how sad my upgrades from 2.5's to 3.5's are.

Obviously it all depends what specific issues you're talking about, but whatever you collect at whatever grade, enjoy it!  There will always be somebody whose collection is "better" but only your collection is yours!

nothing sad about a funny-book you love!

p.s.  the guy with the best avatar on the boards NEVER should feel sad about his collection!

Haha, thanks.  I love my collection and I get super excited when I upgrade, even if it is a 2.0 to a 3.0 or something!  Just lusting after your beautiful books, that is all :cloud9:

The avatar is from my copy of ASM #2.  I love that someone doodled on it!  I have "good luck" in purchasing old issues where someone doodled on my Spidey I guess.  This one is from my copy of ASM #10.  Should I consider making a switch lol

Yeah, that is a bit less lovable than your “side-eye” Spidey.

My first copy of FF 4 was given the full doodle treatment; word balloons, arrows thru heads, blacked out teeth, etc.

I do not miss it.

14 is just such a great cover.  Congrats on a nice looking copy!
 

Also, I thought I remembered there being an ASM 14 club back in the day...finally found the link.  Nobody has posted there in years.  Bring it back to life!

This one will do while I wait for something slightly better. I love the deep reds, in spite of the doodling.

No shame there.  That book is solid!

This is a perfect match to your AF15, and it looks really nice as well.

I actually enjoy seeing some of these now really valuable books with a bit of doodling and well-loved. I can't imagine finding a so called rare variant from 2018 in 30 years from now, with Spidey´s eyes blacked out or a tongue drawn out of his mouth or something. All will be 9.6-9.8 examples. Boring.

You guys are making me feel like this should be “the one”.  Maybe I will change my mindset. It is a good match to the AF15.

Congrats!  That is a beautifully centered copy with no MC.  I agree with the above, pairs quite nicely with that AF15(thumbsu
