If you have a dream about out-posting me, you better wake up and apologize.

Who has a copy and in what grade?
When did you buy it?
Any interesting stories to share concerning the purchase or trade?
What do you store it in?
This thread is inspired from the Amazing Spider-Man collecting thread. I thought I read somewhere that there were an estimate of about 2000 copies out there, but seems like there are more than that.
I got my copy in 1993, knowing at the time I would never again have the capitol to buy a copy (how true that realization became). My copy is a VG -. I keep it stored in a Silver Age Fortress. I have thought about getting it graded, but am reluctant sending it through the mail.
I guess it's time for me to break out my copy and scan/post a pic. Several board members who were at my house last Sept. for the Baltimore Comicon forum dinner saw my AF 15...I even let 'em hold it and turn the pages
Loc: St. Augustine, FL, on my mind....
You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast Yonder stands your orphan with his gun Crying like a fire in the sun Look out the saints are comin' through And it's all over now, Baby Blue

I bought mine about two months ago, but I've only had it in my hands for 12 days now as I had it hand delivered in Chicago.
It's a lowly PLOD but I am very happy with it and look to keep it for the long haul or at least until the White Mountain shows up for sale again . As excited as I am to finally own my own copy, I think I'm just as excited in the fact that I never have to do an Ebay or ComicLink search for one ever again. Woohoo. This was also the book that completed my mini run of the "Big 3" from Marvel. When I was a teen I couldn't have imagined that I'd own one, never mind all three (ASM #1, FF #1, and AF#15). It's amazing how perspective changes as we grow older.
" Having been at the lunch where this picture was taken (last year's NYCC), I can attest to the friendship you all shared from an outsider's perspective. I was just e-mailing with a buddy of mine and fellow boardie, who was also at that lunch, that you could just tell that these guys had a level of friendship that you just don't often see in adults of that age. I honestly thought you guys had been friends for years! My heart really goes out to you guys and all of his family! " dem1138 July 24/09 3:16PM

Up 20 words per minute since I signed up
The piece out of the cover is a bummer, but it's a solid copy otherwise. I keep it in a Mylite2 with an acid free board, inside a 4mil Mylar. This one and ASM #2 and #3 were the last I needed to fill in the back issues. I felt as if I had conquered the world when I got them.
