    MAD (garbage) Collectables! (And after writing something for every issue of MAD for the past 410 issues (and still counting), I have a lot!)

    When I wrote a new MAD paperback or had something published I really liked, I would call the distribution warehouse where MAD books and magazines were stored and buy a case or two. The plan was to store it in a warehouse until it was worth a ton of money. Then I would put it on sale and start raking in the cash! As you may have heard or read elsewhere, storing all this crap in a warehouse turned out to be quite stupid. Almost 30 years of storage right in the heart of high rent New York City, just two blocks from Gizneyland cost about $85,000 so far! I'll never make it back, but --oh well, that's water under the bridge. (So much better for me to think of it that way, than the more realistic "cash down the drain!")

    I hope you find something you like to buy for yourself, or as a gift to someone you don't particularly care about. Anything you spend goes toward keeping Dick's Gadget Warehouse alive. (Or least the part I rent.)  Most everything that can be autographed is sent autographed. Right now this page is set up so you have to order each MAD "gem/trash" separately. Since you pay postage per item, I try to add a "surprise" to each multi-order to cover any extra money you may have paid.  Thanks for stopping by.

    MADly, Dick De
