So, after some soul searching, and fun accounting of income and my expenses this year I have come to conclusion that I couldn't afford the new race wheels (Zipp 808's with a power meter) without putting the rest of my life in great peril. And while my life isn't extravagant by any means, there is no way I would be happy cutting back on the few joys I have in life, so its time to sell stuff on eBay!
I recently sold my arcade machines (out of necessity or my friends storing it would have killed me) and got some "fun" money, but now I need some serious cash so I have to up the ante, along with upping the loss of sentimental value. Comics were a huge hobby of mine growing up. My friends and I would go to shows as kids (not sure if I can put going to Comic Con at 24 years old in that group) and grab up everything we could.
Coincidentally Iron Man is my favorite since I was a kid. Its going to take a lot to get me to sell my Tales of Suspense 39, or Ironman #1, but the rest are up for grabs on eBay coming soon!
Other favorites are the X-Men, Spiderman, Avengers, and Captain America. I just unloaded the 1st appearance of Juggernaut last night, so things are rolling along great so far. Check out the latest batch of auctions I have going below.
There are always things you can do without to get you prepared for your goals. Comics were a big part of my life a ways back and its only fitting that they can now help me with what is important to me now!
