Marvel Collectors' Item Classics #1-22, February 1965 - August 1969.

As Marvel's second reprint title (after Marvel Tales), this book was putting stories on the newsstand that at the time were only a couple of years old, if that. This was actually a smart move, because due to the self-referential continuity of Marvel's superhero universe, readers who had missed the boat the first time around could catch up and get in on the various characters' origins and early adventures without laying out more money for back issues held by more savvy collectors.
