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.
SHELF DATE of March 1948

As always, thanks for looking, folks!
