I would buy the Ally Sloper Award of Merit, presented to Captain Robert Scott in 1909, 'Because he is a brave explorer and deserves success'. For sale on AbeBooks for a mere £593.05.

Anyone else have any dreams?

I wonder how it ended up in Austria? It was sold at Christies 7 years ago along with 3 other certificates for £500 in total so I can only assume the buyer was from Austria.

Easy.

I would:

* Complete all my comic collections.
* Buy all of David Pugh's Dan Dare artwork.
* Finish collecting all of the Robert Harrop Dandy figures.
* Buy all the Fleetway annuals.

But saying that, the fun is in the collecting so maybe just the Dan Dare artwork.
