I used to do the same thing Greg. I had a file at the shop, and when I picked up my books, I'd compare them to the ones on the shelf to make sure I had top condition books. Since realizing that I well probably never sell them, and even if I had mint books to sell, I probably well never get full value for them, I'm not too concerned. Still keep everything bagged & boarded though. How do you guys keep track of your collections? I had initially started using Wizards online database, but then they wanted to charge for it so I dropped it. I've since got most of my collection in a giant Works database. Once I get it complete, I plan on buying an overstreet guide to put in what the current speculation value is. I tried the "Collecterz Comics" program, but their online database for comics is pretty much non-existant. Oh, and to answer your question, I almost always got NM books with the pull list.
