This is an Interesting thread that I only now stumbled onto.
It's neat to see everyone's choices and books from their collection. It also forces me to make an interesting set of choices myself since all that I'm collecting is grails (the books on the cover of Gerber's Photo-Journals). Still, some of them are pretty tough books.
Silver Streak #6 (VG)
Hit #5 (CGC 6.0 SP)
Planet #1 (CGC 4.5 EP)
Terrific #4 (raw here but now the best CGC 2.5 you've ever seen)
Mask #2 (VG/F)
Great top five! Excellent taste!
When you get tired of that Mask 2, let me know. It's numero uno on my list of grails I DON'T own.....yet.
I am not going to mess around with the whole "not yet processed" BS. I am looking for a higher graded copy anyway. I don't want to go much below 4.0 on that book....5.0-6.0 would be ideal. Should have bid higher on the last one on Heritage.
1. Avengers #4 GD+ 2. Amazing Spider-Man #3 G/VG 3. Amazing Spider-Man #14 GD+ 4. Amazing Spider-Man #s 121/122 VF- (sorry, these two are inseperable) 5. Amazing Spider-Man #300 VF+
Of course... these are just some of my favorites off the top of my head. The story behind the Avenger's 4 is probably what puts it in this list over one or two other books I own (i.e. ASM 15, My Batman Year One set, etc).
I'm going to have to revise this given recent purchases and "lay aways" over the past couple weeks.
