MintyMint's Bio
Hi there and welcome to my home page. I am an avid comic collector. I have been ever since I received a copy of X-Men 119 back in 1978 (I know: "Gee, you started collecting because of the X-Men - how original!"). Ok so I am one of many who got started that way but one thing has stayed the same: they brought me a lot of joy then and they still do now. I love everything about them. Little did I know when first I walked into Toronto's Dragon Lady Comics to get the final issue of MTIO Project Pegasus that I would end up so hooked on comics but that's how it is. Today SA Marvel is my primary focus but I really like SA DC as well, especially Flash, Green Lantern and JLA. And BA Batman is awesome stuff. GA material rocks too. To a large extent I collect by grade and where possible try to stick to 9.6 and above. If you own a book you see I need, please contact me at popester66@gmail.com. Thx for looking and happy collecting. Mike Pope

2006: No. 1 Amazing Spider-Man 1-100 Set
2014: No. 1 Daredevil 1-157 Set
2015: No. 1 Avengers 1-100 Set
2018: No. 1 JLA 1-100 Set

Accomplished in 2014: received CGC's Achievement in Collecting Comics Award for putting together a collection of incredible depth and breadth across titles from the Golden Age to the Bronze Age including complete killer Silver Age runs in Minty-Mint condition.
2015: reached No. 2 overall in the Registry with just over 2 million points (when that meant something before the massive point inflation). Oh and I was awarded Best Silver Age Set for completing the mightiest Avengers 1-100 run ever assembled! With every single issue in 9.6 or better (including many in 9.8) it was the finest Avengers set ever on the registry!
2018: After reaching the pinnacle with the Avengers, I felt I had to turn my attention to the title that started the whole 'super-hero team under one banner' idea. So after a 5-year run, I successfully put together the finest JLA set ever. With #1 and #2 in 9.6, multiple copies in 9.8, and grossing 202,035 points just for issues 1-75, it was the finest JLA set on the registry to that date!
2019: I turned my attention back to Golden Age books and looked for cool covers that captured the spirit of the age. Check out my custom set 'Minty-Mint Gold' to get a sense for what I was up to.
2020: I traded out of my #1 JLA set to a friend and fellow collector but discovered I had enough under copies to build a set in 9.4. That left me looking for just a #1 and a #3. Happen to have either in 9.4? (if so, pls lmk!). Also, I picked up a rare group of high grade Flashes and the bulk of paperheart's Green Lanterns.
2021: Ok so the Flashes were short-lived as I sold those and most of the remainder of my Marvel collection to help pay for a house at the beach.
2022: Completed my Green Lantern run in two years.
2023: Quiet year for comics but acquired some very cool comic art!
2024: Branching into collecting graded paper money. Once a collector, always a collector ;-)

Peace! -MP
