I was born in December 1958. A couple of notable books, Flash 105 and Batman 121, came out that month.

As was I.  I briefly considered buying the comics that came out that month for my spinner rack, but those books changed a lark of a project into an expensive one.

I bit the bullet and bought both books in the last couple of years. Thankfully, I got relatively good deals on them. I also have Superman 127 and Detective 264 from that month. I would still like to get some of the others.

I thought about trying to do the same thing, but fortunately, I came to my senses when I realized how many books there were and how much they would cost.

I feel sorry for those that were not old enough to buy Silver Age books right off the racks.  It was a magical time with great monster models; great gum cards; great Saturday morning cartoons; and of course great comics!

I had the measels in the mid-60s.  Any time my mom or dad left the house, I asked them to bring me a pack of baseball cards.  Loved the gum, and loved, loved, loved those cards.  Somehow all those cards disappeared, I think while I was away at college (familiar story, I know).  I also enjoyed putting together car models, and then blowing them up with firecrackers.
