Had a massive comic book collection in my parents basement when I went to college. Came home a year later and Dad told me the sump pump went out, the basement flooded and they got wet, so he threw them all in the trash.I collected stamps, baseball cards and comic books ...
Oh my comics! Sold them when I was 17. First issues of silver age Xmen,the flash,justice league etc. my first issue of the flash would go for around 3 or 4 grand now. I had a run of 105-155. Still breaks my heart to think how dumb I was.I collected stamps, baseball cards and comic books (all Marvel I hated DC) as a kid. I sold my collections when I went to college to pay for books. If I had them back today, I could probably have retired early.
LOL. Same here. I have a whole collection of Terry & Dale cars. Most are the large ones, and several are limited editions. I have never even looked to see what they may or may not be worth. All packed away in boxes.die cast... Nascar die cast... Terry Labonte nascar die cast...
i have no less than 400 cars in scales from 1/144 through 1/18. collected all of this in the early to late 90's when the Ice Man was a front runner. beyond the cars i have a myriad of other items with the 5 car (and some older 44 car) all over them.
now, packed away (never inventoried) i think there's at least 8-9 medium/large moving boxes taking up valuable space in my garage.
a fool and his money.... its true.
maybe some day they will be worth something. probably be my kids adventure to find out... or dispose of.
Depending on the condition and issue they are not worth that much. Old comics are worth so much because they were made to be thrown out and not kept.Had a massive comic book collection in my parents basement when I went to college.

Like you, I probably could have retired early!
It's interesting...he has no clue why he's 'Gun Salesman-of-the-Year' these past 7+ years...all while verbally 'claiming' he's not trying to remove every individuals ability to protect themselves and their loved ones with one! Oh...and he always comes out in favor of or 'for' the criminals!Gun collecting has become real popular ever since Dumbo Ears took office. Ammo collecting too, it seems!
Bristol... their biggest little battleground!!!LOL. Same here. I have a whole collection of Terry & Dale cars. Most are the large ones, and several are limited editions. I have never even looked to see what they may or may not be worth. All packed away in boxes.
Thats when racing was STILL racing. I still have bristol races here, on VHS. haha.
that was impressive... nothing like a steaming pile of twisted metal in Victory lane... wasnt that the one where he literally crossed the finish line sidewaysEarnhardt sure looked shocked when the fans booed him that night.
I liked it the previous race, when Terry drove his Earnhardt wrecked car into Victory Lane.
