    I couldn't agree more !,....

    I sold my complete set two years ago when taxes came due on the house,.. I got way stupid money for them,.. But I really miss having them.

    Congratulations,... Oh yeah,... one more thing,.. she saved you plenty of money, So you can go and get her something shiny with a really big rock on it to wear on the third finger of her left hand.... she's a keeper !:D

    (glad to help you out there,...)

    A seriously fortunate find, the fiance, the RJ cache is a bonus. Consider that probably someone's girlfriend/wife/Mom set the box at the curb or gave it away when she was "cleaning up your mess!" jus sayin'

    Four years ago I financed my divorce by selling issues 1-30 on ebay. I miss the magazines but it was worth it to get rid of the bad marriage.

    What a score, unbelievable. Now what should I do with the extra copy of N0.1 that I got for nothing from a buddy? I saw one sell on Ebay this month for $250 plus. Mine has a little damage in one corner of the cover but the rest is mint.

    If anyone is interested I AM SELLING a full set 1-50 that I will be parting with as we need money for a new addition to the house.

    I am located in Calgary Canada so factor shipping to your location. I will charge whatever USPS charges me. If you want fedex or something then you pay what I pay.

    Message me if interested as I will be putting on Ebay in a week.
