I started collecting these comics in fall of 2008, and in three years, I acquired almost all of these comics that I loved as a kid growing up in the mid 1970s and 1980s. In 2011, the Collectors Society recognized this set as one of the three best bronze age comic book collections in the world.

This collection also now includes the rarest comic in the set, Aquateers Meet the Super Friends! I acquired it at an auction in fall 2016, but it is still in the original 1979 packaging with the companion Super Friends swim goggles. Hence, I have no intentions of removing it and submitting it for grading at this time.
