When I was a kid in the seventies and eighties I was obsessed with the comic book The Amazing Spiderman. I started reading the comic at the anniversary special # 200. Within five years and a lot of cutting lawns, I had the complete collection from #7 to the recent one at the time (I did not have 121/122 The Death of Gwen Stacy, was too expensive to acquire).. when I stopped buying them and sold the face value ones before I went into the navy. I kept 7-50 for investment purposes. Of course while I was in the Navy I lost the rest of my collection to a flooded storage area at my parents house. I probably spent 500 dollars on building that collection. I would go around comic book conventions and find deals , etc etc. It was a lot of fun. That collection would probably fetch 50 thousand now. I never could have kept that collection anyway, my life until I was 40 was filled with too many moves and being poor much of that time. I just put a bid on a #7 just for nostalgic sakes.
