For people giving long box numbers they average 250 for bagged and boarded and 300 packed without boards.

So if you have 20 long boxes and you know most of your stuff is bagged and boarded use the 250 and if you don't bag/board use the 300.

I have about 12,000
I keep a Index, and up date it each month I get my new comics.
Attempted to get a cost estimate for the collection a few years ago, and was told that there weren't anything I had of interest. That was from Silver Acre Comics........
When I say 12,000 ish I'm including all the old British weeklies, Fanzines, Previews and comic related magazines......

50 at most. I'll probably count them next time I clean. Got rid of almost all of them a couple years ago and only kept the sentimental ones.

Probably a little over 2k, with a couple dozen tpb

Amoebas, do you seriously have more than 100,000?

That's about the size of my LCS

I think that if I convert my TPBs (400 something) to single issues (*6) I'm in the 2,000 to 2,999 range.

One lone long box. That was filled just before I couldn't afford monthies any more. A few golden age comics, and two book shelves devoted to trades and books about comics. The DC pop up book takes up a lot of space, let me tell ya.

I have no idea, far less than there used to be though. But the damn things just keep piling up regardless. I've been considering another purge. I start to think, "maybe I can get rid of all of them?" But then I find one comic or another...full set of Eightball. Never give that up. Crap.

There's some kids on the block who still remember my big yard sale from 3 years ago, I sold so many comics that day I gave them the empty long-boxes for free and they thought it was the coolest thing to have their first long-boxes to store comics in.
