Do you have a big collection? Rare stuff? Oddities? I haven't seen a topic where one can brag and think it could be fun. I've seen similar ideas on other forums and thought it could be fun here.

I've been collecting Neil Gaiman since early 1992. Here's my brag.

For various reasons, I've given away/sold most of my Neil collection except for one piece.

Rather surprised that more people haven't posted to this.
Maybe most of the people here are only readers rather than collectors, or just want to keep their collections secret.
I'm going to try to post my collection later when I'm home.

I don't have the all the first edition signed books that you guys have, but I do have a copy of the Karen Berger #8 and the Error edition of #18 (not the greatest copy).

But yes, I am a collector and I do have a copy of almost everything you guys have. I still haven't got a copy of the Duran Duran Bio. or the printing of Featherquest.

Other things that I have, that I haven't seen on the list that you might be interested in are:
Cerebus #147 Neil's story on Emperor Heliogabolus - I read a quote that Neil secretly smiles when he sees someone bring that books to a signing.
The Chapbook version of the book.
The Chicagocon roast of Gaiman (signed/unsigned)
Sunbird chapbook and perfume bottle.
Cherry Deluxe #1 (XXX)
A Distant Soil #25 ("Troll Bridge" comic)

I have bought and sold over 30 sets of Sandman #1-75 and if anyone is interested, I can put a set together and sell it to you on ebay. I consider it a service and though I make a profit, I am selling well below retail (about $200 for a nice set). Anyone who wants a set should be able to get one at an affordable price, I think.
