I also love hearing about someone reaching further back in time to expand their collection.  There is something really magical to saying "this is now the oldest book I own."

When you are collecting a run, the earliest book in that run is very special. Congrats on that #6!

I think it being an unexpected find makes it all the more exciting as well. I was really hoping to just come away with some of the more recent issues that I'm missing (which I did), and came prepared with cash just in case I came across a 101 or maybe even a 129. Never even considered that there'd be single digit issues. They also had 5, but I figured I'd go for the first Lizard before picking up that one. 

I think I'm lucky they aren't my LCS, because I'd be super broke pretty quick.

I pulled out an OO spider book to read from 1987 and I found this. I thought I would share.

tks!  of course, i'm speaking only of the 39-79 part of the run here--still could use a few upgrades among the first 15 books.

I've been slowly picking away at re-completing my ASM run.  This time, my focus is 1 to 50, with non keys being 8.0 or higher.  Of course, I keep getting sucked into buying nice looking Romita books in the 50's/60's.

Left to go...

5, 10, 22, 23, 26, 32, 33, and 47.

I wish I had the first 15 Amazing issues. Still I think I decided which old Amazing comics I'm going after. I pulled out an old box this weekend as my inventory isn't correct. I thought I didn't have the first appearance of Black Cat but it turns out that I do. I know I want to upgrade a few that I was just happy to get when I was young as well.

I lost all my silver age ASM to flooding so I doubt I will ever go for those again but 100-up and the keys there are very doable (except 101 LOL). That is my collecting focus anyway. The 101 in high grade is beyond my reach at this point so my focus may change to 102-UP LOL.

55 is one of my all time favorites. If I dip below 100 again that will be one of the first ones I go after!

If you think 101 is up there, wait 'til you try and get 129 in decent condition. Yikes.

Yeah that's true. I didn't think about that as I already have a 7.0 and a 9.6 and haven't been looking at those prices. I just looked and see what you mean.

You could flip your 7.0 129 for a nice 101.
