Retired soldier, having the time of his life ressurrecting a childhood hobby.
Hello there my fellow collectors. It's been awhile since I blogged. My job has me working everyday at the moment.....and I'm lovin' it. How else am I going to acquire that 3 million dollar collection I'm working on. Seriously, I am working daily, which is a good thing. It does allow me to throw more on the massive pile of pennies at my home, so I can buy those beautiful comic books. This pace will continue until November. But I will stick my head in here to say Hello, and update those who are interested in how my meager collection is doing. Also to say "In your face", to those whom I beat in fantasy football.
I have been busy in the comic world though. I won auctions for a VF+ Green Lantern #14, Uncanny x-men #126 CGC 9.4, and the one that I'm most happy about. I finally got my Hero for Hire #1 CGC 8.5 For those who have been reading notes from this madman. Getting all Luke Cage's books for Hero for Hire/Powerman & Ironfist in 9.0 CgC or better was a goal of mine. Even though this one was an 8.5, the price was right. I also got my first ebay rippoff. Items bought and paid for in first week in August still havent arrived. I have written the seller, twice, and about to take the next step to paypal.
Looking forward to stepping up and getting something semi-big for me in the next couple of weeks. A few hints. It's a D.C. book, and the first time someone with the initials H.J. assumed the role of this superhero. Negotiations are going pretty good for it. At work now, gotta run will add pics of Hero for Hire #1, and Green Lantern #14. Take care all until next time.
