Classic Cover of the Week 5/20/2018
New Week, New Covers!!
Gangsters Can't Win #2
A different take on the classic skull cover. This one published by DS Publishing seems all but a ghost on the market. A single copy for sale on Ebay, though it has not moved at 375 so not sure if folks are buying into the scarcity. Either way, cool cover for a crime book, I would love to see how it does at auction.
Only 2 copies on the CGC census, both Universal, a 7.0 and a 6.0
SHELF DATE of April 1948
Blue Beetle #54
Another incredible Good Girl cover from the late 40s. Mentioned in this week's HOT 10 by Stein, this is not a rare book, but commands “rare book money” when brought to market. Seems the 2 on ebay were bought but then relisted again, so not sure whats going on there. Either way this is a book to watch for in auction, as the ask price is a tad steep for those listings.
45 Universal Copies on the CGC census with an average grade of 5.56. Top of the chart is a pair of 9.4s with a lone 2.0 at the bottom.
As always, thanks for looking, folks!
