Wow...don't let anyone know of what you have if you have a decent collection of comics...

This is a blurb I saw on someone's collection being stolen out of a storage unit...I didn't reproduce the entire article here, just the first 3 sentences or so, but I thought it was a reminder to the rest of us to be careful in letting others know of what you may have in the way of collections. Be careful!! You never know who exactly you're talking to (or those who know about the collection go talking to others you don't even know about. so sad. SWBTATTReg

Over $100K in Comic Books Stolen From Storage Unit
By NICOLE DRUM - December 29, 2018

For one Las Vegas man, super villains don't just exist on the pages of comic books. They exist in real life as well and one is responsible for the theft of $100,000 worth of comic books. According to News 3 Las Vegas, two suspects broke into Daniel Ballard's Life Storage unit on Thursday, December 27 and stole 12 boxes of comic books totaling around 3000 individual books, including several valuable issues.

The crown jewel of it was the Amazing Spider-Man," Ballard said. "I had the entire run, 1-170, volume one and two. I had a lot of other issues. The first appearance of Venom, Death of Captain Stacy, and the first appearance of the Punisher."
