Recent Spider-Man Hauls

One of the things I want to do is to start a collection of Spider-Man comics. Spider-Man is my all time favorite superhero, with Batman consider 1A. I want to collect as many vintage comics as my wallet can afford. So far, I have been able to get some nice books without putting me into the poor house.

I realize these might not be considered vintage, but for under 20.00, I couldn't pass them up

The 90's was a great time to be a Spidey fan. The cartoon was a hit on FOX, there was some great toys out and the comics were pretty cool.

Remember these oversized comics from the 70's?

I used to have a ton of them. I remember having the Superman vs Ali, Batman vs Spider-Man and some of the DC reprints. A friend of mine came by the other night and dropped it off. An awesome add to the collection.

I bought these off someone on

I'd say my Spidey collection is off to a great start.

I'm going to a toy show in Wayne, NJ this weekend. Hopefully I can find something to bring home with me.

About The New Title...

So, I finally decided to rename the blog and put up a new templete as well. The title is acutally a joke between myself and friends and thought it would make a good title for this blog.

Let me assure you, I don't think I'm sexy. Geek, yes, sexy, not in this lifetime.

I'm in the process of making a brand new banner as well. I want to incorporate images of cards, vintage toys, and what I collect all into one banner. Problem is, Photoshop is not cooperating. As I am trying to extract an image, the screen blinks and I lose whatever work I had already started. I'm hoping I can find time to get that banner up this weekend. If not, I may have to hire someone to do it for me, if I can find someone who works cheap.

This weekend, I'm hoping to hit up the big flea market in Manhattan and find some treasures for the collection. I have been hitting up thrift shops and Salvation Army stores, with no luck what so ever. Not sure how other people have done it. I can never seem to find anything that's worth buying, except a book or two.

Hope you guys have something good planned for the weekend.

It's been a while...

It's been a while since my last post. I'd like to be able to give you a reason why I haven't posted since July. Something like I got a new job or I moved or even I got a new girlfriend that takes up a lot of my time. But I got nothing. To be honest, I kinda suffered from a brain lock.

It's not as if I hadn't gotten anything new. It was just that I really had nothing to say. I would come on here, look at a blank screen and nothing came to my brain. No words for me to type. I felt like the well had run dry and my blogging days were over.

Then I had a thought. Why not blog about other stuff? As much as I love sports and collecting sports cards, I do have other intrests and stuff I collect. My love for Spider-Man and Batman has been rekindled and I have started collecting them again. I do collect The Beatles and KISS as well. Why not turn this into a Pop Culture/Sports blog? I couldn't think of a reason not to. Not only will it cover all my favorite things, I should be able to blog at least a few times a week about diffrent subjects.

Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about the new direction I will be taking my blog to. I hope the readers I have had will decide to stick around. It is fun to write this blog, but it's nothing without the people who read it and comment on it. I am very grateful I have readers, so I hope you will continue to read it. I will still talk sports along with comics, figures, movies, etc. I hope this new direction will be a sucessful one as well as a fun read.

Talk to you later.
