  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • rusty: Crazy.  I obviously missed that back then.
    November 03, 2018, 10:06:11 pm
  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

Oldest Archie item you own
« on: April 02, 2016, 09:32:12 pm »
I'm still relatively new to finding and collecting Archie but so far the oldest thing I've found is Archie 132. It's in bad shape but I still got it. Haven't seen anything older yet.

Surprisingly I've had a hard time finding any old Archie.

The oldest item in my collection is a somewhat beat-up copy of Pep #60 from March, 1947. It was given to me as a gift when I bought some other comics from a user on this forum.

The Oldest Item That I own in my Archie Collection is:

Pep #26!

I do have a few pre-archie (MLJ) Titles and Issues, but if we don't count those, than the above is the oldest.

That's awesome! Do you guys get your stuff online a lot of the time?

I'm always hesitant to because I really love going to stores and going through all the old stuff but I can't believe how difficult it's been to actually find old Archie issues.

The oldest Archie item I've got is a copy of Archie Comics #53 (Nov-Dec 1951) that I found on the old B&N Marketplace a number of years ago. But the oldest Archie-published item I've got is Jolly Jingles #15 (Fall 1944).

When comics started to be described as “collectibles” in the mid-1970s Archie comics weren’t thought of in the same light — they were considered throwaway fluff for kids, so the vast majority were just thrown away … even (especially) if they were kept they were well used, often drawn in or worse, and stored in poor conditions … so they are exceedingly rare today (though still not in demand so the prices are usually comparatively trivial if you can find them at all — and people don’t bother selling them since they don’t go for much …
 
The oldest physical copies I have are actually “Archie Adventure” imprints from the early ‘60s (the Fly & the Jaguar) …

The oldest item I own is Archie #3. I found it a bookstore/café for about $4. I wish I can find older stuff but when I saw that it was #3 I snatched it while it was available  :)

Yeah I sort of figured that Archie isn't the most collectible but it's still a surprise. I went to a local small comic store here and actually found a decent amount of stuff.

I told him any Archie he finds to let me know because I've had a really hard time with it.

Do you live on the east coast? Where I live (Missouri) there is virtually no Archie to be had besides the reboot.

I live in Colorado actually. So yeah it's been tough to come by here. I've found a decent amount of 70's-80's
Life with Archie, Betty and Veronica, and little Archie.

I've only found 2 issues of just the normal Archie series though.

My Girlfriend has been trying to find any old Sabrina the Teenage Witch and that has been ever harder. We have found 3 issues of that.

Most anything from the ‘90s is hard too — as bad as from the ‘60s at least — they tried to diversify and “re-invent” a lot of stuff then and people either loved it & kept it, or more often hated it and trashed any they had bought (a lot was pretty weird at the time)

I found it pretty easy to find '90s Archies.  Of course, that might be because I bought all of them in the '90s when they came out...   ::)

The oldest Archie comic I have is not that old, it's from the 80's. An Archie Annual Digest.

You know those Vintage Buttons the Archie Comics site has for sale for just .99 cents per button, how vintage do you think they really are for that little of a price tag?
