Okay ladies and germs....let's kick this "top books concept" up a notch!! Can we produce and agree on what the top 100 books of the silver age are to own?!?

Lemme set the why?! because it's my thread!!

Rules -
1) Marvel and DC are allowed (too bad if you don't like both!)
2) we'll use perceived value as the yardstick....so, based on your experience and perspective, what are the top books (of course dollar value typically plays a role)
3) I assume 99% of us will agree on the top 10-15, 75% will agree on top 25......but how many will agree on top 50, 75, 100? so to control the data a bit, the rule is just post your opinion in the following format (just copy, paste and fill in this following template.....I'll try to tally the responses in a coherent way)

These books belong in the top 100
- X
- Y
- Z
- A

These books don't belong in the top 100
- X
- Y
- Z
- A


I'll start with the list and (gimme a couple minutes) hm hm and let the games begin!!!

i agree though its alot of work to participate but you seem to have the biggies in there, maybe a top 10 would be easier to do?

hist value or $$$ n Cents? I am sure I am the minority, but TOS 39 should out rank ASM 1 .... hmmm I might even put FF1 over AF15... no Stan Lee and FF1 maybe no silverage (Showcase 4 is overrated)
