This means that, after we pay all of our bills, fill our cars with gas, and put food on our plates, over half of the remaining money is used to put comics and football cards into plastic sleeves and cardboard boxes.
Let’s take a look at this weekend’s expense report, shall we?
- $20.00—First edition of It’s Superman.
- $73.20—Comic book order for comics shipping in March.
- $25.50—Brady Poppinga SP Authentic football card #/25.
- $08.11—Three Uncanny X-Men comics.
That’s a grand total of $126.81 spent on collectibles. Compare that to the $17.81 I spent having lunch and seeing a movie with friends. You know, enjoying a social life.
