Woooow. Corloff! Though I agree, you opened a Costco sized can of worms! LOLI hope they're gummi worms, 'cause I love 'em! I do want to make it clear that I'm not necessarily dissing collectors. Believe me, I understand that psychosis all too well. Thing is, because I rarely allow myself to spring for expensive collectibles, I love it when someone makes a great facsimile available. For example, I love L. Frank Baum's original Oz books. But older editions, in good shape, with their nice color plates, run hundreds of dollars each. So I was thrilled when Books of Wonder published their beautiful, faithful hardback reproductions, with slip-covers and the color illustrations, for about $20 each.I also love the 40 or so Edgar Rice Burroughs Ace paperback editions, with their cool covers by Frazetta and Krenkel and others. As collectibles go, they're pretty attainable at $4 to $10 apiece. But if someone republished them faithfully, I'd happily collect the new ones.Of course, it's none of my business what other people collect or how much they spend. But I do caution people to be aware of when their collecting hobby/habit starts to interfere with their overall standard of living, and the needs of those who depend on them. Guess it's like any addiction, eh?
