Vintage Comics And Toys


My vast collection started in 2008 when I moved to Los Angeles. It was then I became enamored with the rich culture of picking and hunting for rare vintage comic books and pop-culture related items and it became an obsession as I filled up my tiny 500 square foot apartment with tons of collectibles. I began to have too much in my apartment that I started opening up my collection to the public at local comic cons before moving on to bigger shows. I officially moved to the east coast in 2016 with the aspirations of continuing my business and bringing along my Socal vibe to shows on the east coast. My shop represents the type of collectibles you would find in comic book stores and toy shops, across the U.S. Shop Now.
