What I Learned In 2006

I learned a lot this year, but in terms of collecting, it can be summed up by these bullet points.

  • The difference between collecting and accumulating
  • Quality always trumps quantity
  • You have to pay for quality. Very rarely will you get a "steal" on a true quality item.
  • There is a great sense of satisfaction in selling a dozen items you won't miss and buying one item you really love
  • There is a very fuzzy and subjective line between 9.6 and 9.8, and it's not worth paying a huge premium for a subjective .2 difference that could change on any given day

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of my readers. This blog has been a lot of fun, and I enjoy all the comments people send.

Here's a little something that I've wanted for quite a while... a gorgeous Alex Schomburg cover and it's notoriously tough to find in high grade. Perhaps the best Marvel cover of the Bronze Age.
