Iron Man 2017 Fleer Ultra PMG — sent for grading & hoped it'd be a 10 but I'll take a 9!

Getting a 10 just wasn't gonna happen (though I did get one Green 10 that I'll post later...) with this notoriously tricky-to-grade-well set, but I'm a huge fan of Tony (don't need to look further than the statue in my office) and love the art on the 2017 Iron Man.

Lucky enough to see vintage Mcdonald's paraphernalia during my weekend trip to ChainFest headquarters. I'm McLovin it.

Collecting for others: Then we stand together...

Our family is a huge fan of Wolverine. We even named our kid Logan. 😅

So naturally, I own (almost) every Funko Pop and other thematic-things that we plan on giving to him when he gets older. Just curious, is anyone building a collection for someone else?

Check out a list of the collection here: https://www.cardboardconnection.com/funko-pop-wolverine-figures-guide

A bit of a random post... A few years ago, I got this first-edition book showing the palettes of famous artists. I just thought it was a cool concept. Only 800 were made. It wasn't cheap when I got it, but now I see them online for ~$400+. Below is a bit of the description from the book.

"...The photographer to embark on a genuine research project which, over the course of many years and many trips, has seen him visit dozens of museums, foundations and private collections, and immortalise the palettes that the great masters of the 19th and 20th centuries used to create their paintings.

When closely analysed, this simple work tool proves to be a bridge between the personality of the artist and their paintings. On every palette, the preparation of the paints, the texture of the colours applied, mixed and dried, the paint that has been removed, the strokes of the palette knife or brush, the stains, are all intimately associated with the hand, the body and the mind of the artist. The painting before the painting, these aspects all hint at the artist’s working method, their colour preferences, the way they transfer colour to the canvas; an intimate witness to the painter’s journey, the palette is the legacy they leave behind."

Hello Mantel Family! 

I interrupt your stream of awesome collectible community posts such as @BenchMob's Derrick Rose themed PC Tuesday or @hypemon's Mamba Day announcement to present to you my impulse buy of the week ... this exclusive only to theaters Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, cup. (It glows in the dark, oh boy!)

Just in case you’re feeling a bit shameful from one of your recent “I haaaadddd to have it purchases.” 😂 Regardless, you will receive zero judgment and positive affirmations from me - so go ahead and share an experience in the comments.
