2011 in review

2011 was a good year for my collection. While it is still an ongoing struggle, I really tried to maintain focus and avoid impulse buys. I wasn't perfect, but I did okay.

Better late than never, here are some of my favorite 2011 acquisitions.

I was lucky enough to obtain this through a Steiner sale before Mr. Frazier passed away.

Mickey Mantle single signed ball

I really like the Ron Lewis lithos signed

One of a few Mantle signed photos I picked up

Iron Mike did a signing at the National in Chicago

My favorite signed photo of the year

Love it!!

And for something other than sports...

A real hero...
Can't go wrong with a signed Stephen King first edition!

Added Stan "The Man" Lee to my Fantastic Four Masterworks. 'Nuf said!

I didn't buy a lot of comics in 2011, but I got a few. Here is one of my favorites with a terrific Neal Adam's cover.
