Cards, Comics & Collectibles, Baltimore

09Jun12

Cards, Comics & Collectibles, located in Reisterstown, Maryland is a real old-time comic store. It has an amazing stock of Bronze Age books leading up to the modern books of today.

My (current) comic collecting goal is to build up my Uncanny X-Men run pre issue 250 – so once I entered the store and absorbed the spectacle of wall to wall comics, posters and related collectibles I hunkered down to scan the boxes for old Uncanny books. I sifted through multiple copies (never have I seen so many multiple copies of Bronze-Aged books before) lifting out the best quality books. Ultimately I walked away with 11 great Uncanny X-Men issues (152, 167 to 169, 171, 191, 197, 200, 202, 206 and 210).

I also lifted about 30 comics from the $1 boxes… most of which are NM quality books… I was incredibly pleased with the whole haul:
