My brother came home with a framed, Giant Size, signed original ANH comic and gave it to me around Christmas. He said his girlfriend was going to take it to the Salvation Army but he said I would take it!
That's just the start! I came home from college one weekend and my mom says, "Um, something fell down in your room. You better go and check it out." I go upstairs and my light is on but the door is closed. I open it and see Han Solo in Carbonite, Darth Vader, Obi Wan cardboard life size cut outs and a ton of posters and books. Apparently his girlfriend's ex husband was a collector and we left his stuff behind. She called him and he didn't want it. So I got it!
The next day he brings home more collectables, records, pins, posters, magazines books and a cardboard cut out of Boba Fett! I just wished he collected action figures too
She was going to throw it out! I am so lucky!
