I started collecting vintage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) in 2011. In part because my partner and I were doing IVF at the time and it was rather traumatic. Collecting TMNT gave me a welcome distraction and something to get nostalgic about.
I’ve sold a majority of my TMNT collection now, but here it is all its glory—documented for all time so I can always remember how incredible it was.
Many of my items were graded (for condition and authenticity) by the Action Figure Authority (AFA) in the US.
