Retired soldier, having the time of his life ressurrecting a childhood hobby.
Sitting down and staring at my long box with 25 books in it. Realizing that I have such a long way to go to be anywhere I want to be in this hobby. I went out yesterday, and bought 2 long boxes, and some boards and bags for the bounty awaiting me. I started receiving first shipments of books. Nothing at all very special. I did nab an Iron Man #3, which I thought was better than what the seller graded it for. Happy just staring at the near empty Long box though. I do love to read them, but hunting them down is good fun also.
1st lesson learned: Put the board in the bag first, moron, as not to possibly damage the book.
2nd lesson learned: Online bidding is not a competitive sport. You can't yell "In your face", to the bidder you just snipped on Ebay, for a book that you know you dont really want. Bid a price, put a max on it, and let the chips fall where they may.- read more
