Rico's Valiant Collection

Ever since 1991, I have obssesed over Valiant comics. I mainly collect Pre-Unity Valiants, variants, and some last issues. To me the stories were awsome, art was excellent, and the overall "new" feel to it made me buy as many issues as I could find. Something just felt special about it.

I would travel in about a 200 mile radius to purchase any pre-unity issues I could get my hands on, unfortunately they were few and far between. As college called I stepped away from collecting. Not until 2003 did I return to collecting valiants.

Within this collection, you will find original art, commissioned art, statues, misc. items, raw valiants, and of course... slabbed CGC Valiants!

I have spent a tremendous amount of time and money amassing this collection and I'm nowhere near done. I have purchased many CGC Valiants, however the majority have been submitted by me.

I would like to thank all those who have helped me amass this collection and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. That is why we are here... right?

Enjoy!

Rico
