While packing to move. Right now I have no idea what box they are currently in (sigh) but I know they made it here to the new homestead. I don’t recall when I purchased the X-Men comic book but from the looks of that price it was – ahem – some time ago. But I do remember when and where I purchased Marvila.
My parents and I often traveled to California when my brother was stationed at Edwards AFB. We made plenty of stops in Arizona as this was the time when road trips where the only way to go unless you were the “elite” and could fly. It was on one of those trips that we made for the border and went into Nogales, Mexico. No idea what mom was looking for but I spent my time reading comic books while mom shopped and dad carried the bags.
My brother collected comics so I followed in his footsteps as he was my hero. Stupidly when I went to college I gave the majority of my collection (big one too) away to a neighbor kid because I thought I was too grown for such stuff. UGH!!!
Been there done that with a baseball card collection when they would come in bubble gum!
I remember those!
Cool find! I recall reading comic books…before they became collectors items…That wouldn’t make me old, would it?
Nope! Not one bit 🙂
Those are fantastic! I clearly remember throwing all mine out… Along with my vinyl albums. Terrible plan.
I saved a few comics and I still have my 45 collection along with my parents jazz LP’s.
That must have been fun. I was cleaning out the crawl space last weekend and found so of my sons books and toys, including Tickle Me Elmo and a few Star Wars Episode I interactive banks and clocks.
Giggling here as my grandson had a Tickle Me Elmo.
Oh no, I can’t believe you gave them away!! I wonder how rich you’d be today if you’d kept those comic books. Sigh!
Tell me about it…or at least I would have one helluva cool collection.
Very cool find indeed! I did not collect comic books but my oldest son did. He still enjoys them.
I don’t collect them anymore but I should peek into a few of them. They’ve changed.
Awesome, i still have a few old ones from the days of my youth (very old ones).
Hind sight is 20/20 with some decisions. Sigh…
I can even get hind sight wrong 😀
You have mad skills then 😉
It is one of my few talents 😀
These are so cool! Great finds!
Good times and good memories!
This stuff is a real treasure. Nice find!
