    I am a huge comic book collector have been since the early '80s. I have 10-15k comics and this week added two very nice PSA certified Stan Lee Autographed posters (16x20) of two pivotal Spider-man issues... The Amazing Spider-man #1 and Amazing Fantasy #15 The First Appearance of Spider-man. Both signatures are PSA Certified and paid a fair price since the passing of Mr. Lee last year. I'm kind of stoked about it. IMG_5886.jpeg

    Better him than me, could not imagine trying to insure that horde. Got out of the game in the late 90s and made a nice return on a hobby my first wife thought was childish. Not going to get into values but the OP could/prolly buy just about any 1911 (within reason) he wanted with just a couple of issues. With that said, I wish I'd held on to two issues, the appearance of the black symbiote and the wedding. ;)

    Yeah my wife makes the same face......

    Yes...When I was into collecting heavy I would typically get 2-3 copies of each book.....


    I could get far more out of them that I invested which isn't a bad thing...but getting the actual value can be difficult since it's somewhat subjective. Getting the comics graded and slabbed is expensive but does increase the value, dramatically in some cases. It's a long slow process here are 3 examples. I've had this stuff since the early '80's and it's in pretty phenomenal shape, 10 = GEM Mint is the highest

    I myself find this funny and sort of interesting. I'm 53 and never have bought or read a comic book in my life

    I too collect comic books. I mostly center on Sgt. Fury and Nick Fury type comics. It can get expensive and they do take up space, but it was a love of my youth. Mostly I download other comics I'm interested in, usually on sale.

    I think back to the days going fishing and camping in the Upper Uinta Mtns.....To keep 3 kids from driving the adults crazy they would stop and buy an arm full of Comics....After they were read We started the fires with them or just tossed in the trash.

    This was back in the early to mid 60's

    Ya, I know.....Just think of what was lost and who would have ever though those could have been worth a fortune back then.....Heck they only cost 7 to 15 cents.

    I got hooked on Jim Starlins work in the Epic Illustrated magazine, where I was introduced to the Dreadstar character in the Metamorphosis Odyssey....hence the signed Dreadstar Graphic novel....plus I’m a huge nerd.

    I may have to get my old collection out from the 80s. I have them all in plastic sleeves, and possibly have some of value in there

    If they’re from the ‘80’s you’ve got some cash in there. Most if not all of mine are from the ‘80s

    One of my roommates in the Marines collected them. He had hundreds and you could read them..... ONCE, had to hold them just right and couldn't fold them back. This was from 74-77. Kinda cool as the artists changed from time to time as well as inkers etc.... Lots more to them than people realize.

    I dabbled a little in LP’s in the ‘80’s now my kids fight over them so I get to enjoy them all over again.
