Send Us Your Shelf Porn!

Time once again for Send Us Your Shelf Porn, the only Internet blog post (that I know of) that lets you, the reader, be the nerd king (or queen, or regent) for a day. This week we’re featuring the collection of Jeff Keller from New Berlin, Wisconsin, whose got quite the set-up in his basement.

Remember, Shelf Porn can only continue with your help. Got a collection you’d like to share? Let the world see it by emailing photos and commentary to me at cmautnerATcomcastDOTnet.

And how here’s Jeff:

First of all, thank you for this great forum. I’ve always been curious how other people display their collections, and you have provided a chance for all of us to share our inner sanctums. I have collected comics for most of my life, and honored to open mine up to all. I hope you enjoy the tour, and I would like to hear what you think.

In my basement room, I wanted people to walk in and be able to peruse the various displays just as you would the aisles of your local comic shop. You’ll find a cross-section of old and new, with the emphasis on DC Comic characters (heavily Batman oriented) and related memorabilia. A large part of my collection is in trade paperbacks of comic strips, dating back to the early 70’s

Lots of comic strip trade paperbacks dating back to the early 70’s

The Overstreet Price Guides start at 1974!

Check out the McDonalds menu board (circa 1974) Quarter Pounder with Cheese for $1.00!

The metal “Best Comics Reading” DC Comics sign came from the spinner rack from the local drug store where I bought comics for 15 years as a kid.

This spinner rack contains one of every DC title from the “Go-Go Checks” era of 1966-67. After over 40 years of collecting, I am “specializing” a little. I am currently compiling a complete collection of every “Go-Go Checks” cover, and I am about 80% complete!

The lateral file cabinets provide a neater storage alternative from the traditional white boxes. Each cabinet holds about 2400 comics.

In addition to the Go-Go Checks, I have also compiled a complete collection of DC 100 Page issues, as well as all of the Bicentennial covers from 1976.

The Toy Corner. A mix of old and new.

Thanks!
