We have so many collectors whose interests run all over the place and whose knowledge is at least as widespread. I know that when I am pursuing particular books, I'll drop a PM to one of these "subject-matter experts" to get their opinions. I think it'd be interesting to compile a list of those collectors who are generally regarded as experts in their respective field of collecting.

I figure these can run the gambit to people who are experts in high grade books to low grade books, specific titles, or niche collecting such as bondage covers, play card covers, etc.

Here are a few to get us started off the top of my head:

I appreciate the thought, Forrest, but expert is a stretch. Anyway, I am focusing on the Silver Age Northland run of the X-Men now and trying to find out all I can about the books and the pedigree.

However, I would also like to know if there are any Bronze Age Northland X-Men books as I would be very interested in those as well. I believe GPA lists a Northland 98 in 9.4 being sold. I think it went through Heritage, but it did not have the Northalnd designation on the label.

Don't know about the expert part but when I think of Hulk books, I think of Green.
When I think about Archies, I think of Baltimore-Lauren.
Romance titles, brings to mind Greggy.
