    I have a friend that made 18,000 from old comic books that his mom was just going to throw away.

    I have about 100 pounds of Arizona highways. The collection goes from the late 60s to the 90s. I am located in south eastern Massachusetts. If interested I can be reached at wyletoycoy (at) aol (dot) com. No reasonable offer will be refused.
