    Default Caretakers of John Hanic's Collection

    Hi, gang. With the recent news that John would be selling his collection; I thought it would be nice to honor him by posting photos of items that you've purchased. To show John that he is still a very valuable member of our community and he will not be forgotten. That we may be fortunate enough to care for his collection until it's time to pass it on ourselves.

    John passed away on December 9, 2020. Please continue to honor him by posting your purchases from his collection here. Thank you.

    Great idea! I don’t collect anymore but otherwise I would have tried my best to secure that Cell proof. And I would have been honored to show a pic of it here. Looking forward to seeing people’s new pride/joys!

    This is a great idea, Brian. John H is an exceptionally nice guy and his collection deserves to be shown off.

    Well done.

    Thanks, guys. I figured it be a nice gesture to showcase John's collection. I'm not sure many of us have seen it all.

    Also, Glen suggested a small bio about John's collecting history be included. That's a great idea as well and John is agreeable to it. Once he's feeling a little better and gets it written up, I'll edit it into the first post and let everyone know.

    George...Do you mind sharing why you bought this item? For example, was this an item you'd be searching for for a while? Would be interested to hear the backstory behind some of these purchases and what it meant to finally land a long sought-after piece.

    Back in 2014 I was the first to come across one of the FDNS Lettered/Gift proofs, then also managed to grab one of the ten Black Cover Internal Office proofs. I already had a White Tape Spine copy as well, so figured since I had the really difficult ones already out of the way why not try and collect a full set of FDNS proofs? That progressed pretty nicely until the Color and Black Tape Spine versions surfaced ... one copy of each known so far. Not impossible, and something to keep me busy looking for the next 50 years.

    When I saw this manuscript I thought it would be a nice addition to the FDNS theme, and since it wasn't listed in the catalog I also thought it would be nice to reveal it to the community. This was actually the item I was talking with John about a few months back when he first announced he'd be parting with his collection but well before he decided it would be easier and better to go through David. That's why I prepped and was completely ready when David posted the first grouping, in case it was there ... and it was! It was my #1 item from John's collection, so I was pretty happy to finally be able to add it to my collection.

    Thank you John!

    I have a similar document, but without the original envelope.

    Mine is for an earlier book and says another number. I am not sure whether the number refers to the contact who got the document (it case it leaked?) or else.
    My version also says "2nd draft" at the top left corner of the pages.

    I grabbed John's copy of Whispers from Betts as it was one I didn't have but I wasn't actively looking for either. I also went for that well priced UK Rage but wasn't as lucky. Thank you John! I will continue to take care of it.
