It ought to be a pretty easy guess!
Classics Illustrated was a series of comic book adaptations of many well known stories from The Three Musketeers to Romeo & Juliet to White Fang. In addition to it being an excellent catalog of literature, Classics Illustrated also featured many artists who would go on to become comic book legends.
With sets like these, sellers on eBay want to spend the time really getting to know the material, down to how comic book enthusiasts date or grade them. In our case we also have a story that goes with these comics!
Once upon a time a young boy would buy these comics from newstands for 10 to 15 cents each. After a little while he had saved for himself a sizable collection...until he had to move away. Many many many years later, that boy, now a man, rediscovered his collection and decided he wanted to complete it. That took some time considering Classics Illustrated ceased publication in the 70s! After a while he succeeded, which brings us here today.
Remember eBay isn't just a place for good deals, sometimes eBay provides the link between the present and someone's past. Of course eBay is also great for when you can't go to Comic Con and miss out on all those comics exclusives, and eBay never closes!
