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?

Pictures welcome.

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.

Well I just recently joined the AF15 club a few days ago. I bought probaly one of the lowest AF15s on record but I'm happy I was able to pick up a cop .

The book is slabed an will either be placed in my CGC box or above my shop/office desk once it gets home.

Mine's about a fair/good I'd say. I paid $275. (I'm old, aren't I?)

Yikes, my copy only cost me about $700 less than a year ago:



I thought that I got suckered...little did I know a copy in similar condition would be selling for around $1,200.00.

All right.

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

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. \:\)

Fortunately, I'm below the radar on these boards and am not worthy of a custom title.

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.
