I remember as a teen in the 80s, when Crisis on Infinite Earths came out, tracking down these older JLA issues and educating myself about DC history.  If I had known I only had to wait 20 years more for them to be collected...

Ha! I assume you're joking.  When I was a teen I couldn't wait 20 days for anything, much less 20 years!

But it is nice to have these collected in handy paperback volumes.  The JLA/JSA crossovers were always one of the high points of my youthful summers.

Off topic a bit, has anyone noticed the Superman/Flash races are due to be collected in a similar manner this summer?  Another must buy!

Here is (I believe) a comprehensive listing:

The first (and best!) is reprinted on my site:

Nightwing, you are right --I tracked down as many of those crossovers as I could afford (and stomach --at the time, some of the artists like Dick Dillin and Mike Sekowsky, were quite alien to my Marvel-Zombified eyes).
But I enjoyed them and owe them my still-limited knowledge of DC history.

Are these collections must-buys?  What are the top 3 anticipated DC collections?

I liked all the Pre Crisis Superman vs the Flash races, though the reprint of "The Race to the End of the Universe" that came along with the version on Nightwing's site is a close contender for the best, IMHO.  The race around the world was not a true race in that they were clearly limited by the rules to not use their true top speeds.  The fastest they ran then was 140 mps which is a far cry from even lightspeed when either of them could easily go 10 x C.  The other story implied they were going all out on a racecourse more worthy of their vast super-speed.

I also liked the races through time which made them more awesome.
