Default Comic Grab Bag on Ebay

So while trolling around on Ebay one night, I happened to find this auction:

One comicbook Avengers Hulk 181 Spider Man 129 Giant Size x Men 1 Wolverine 1 | eBay

I was intrigued. I tried to explain to my girlfriend how this is similar to buying a pack or a box of cards and not knowing what you're going to get out of it. Of course, because she's never collected anything like cards or comics she asked the age-old question..."Why buy packs or boxes when you don't know what you're going to get? Can't you just put that money towards something you know you want?"

It's hard to explain the rush of pulling an awesome card out of an unknown pack to a newbie.

But comics? I had never heard of such a thing. Being the curious person that I am, I checked the feedback of the seller and it seems that people were quite happy with their purchases. If you believe the feedback, someone had actually gotten the Incredible Hulk #181 that he promised in the last round of this auction. So...I went ahead and bought 3. My girlfriend, hoping to one up me by getting a better comic, bought 1 too.

Here's what we got:

2 of mine (the third will be posted at the end):




My girlfriend's:


And my third one:



Needless to say, if this auction is re-upped, I will probably buy a few more.

Very nice. Any FF #'d under 100 is a good investment IMHO

I was pretty happy with it! I loved my GF's reaction on hers...

Her: "It looks old, but I've never heard of it."
Me: "What's the title? Can you recognize anyone on the cover?"
Her: "Defenders? I know Iron Man, Hulk and what looks like a gay Hawkeye. Then some dude in a cape and another guy in a Speedo."
