In today.  Not sure why Amazing Stories have been crossing my path so much recently, but you get what you can find sometimes.  This gives me all 5 of the John Carter stories published in Amazing Stories in 1941, although the others are in the original issues, not the repackaged quarterly:

On the other hand you get another Ross Rocklynne story - what more could you want?

Wet, Rainy, Flea Market this morning but lucked into a few classic pulps in a dry booth.

Nice finds. Those Startlings with Captain Future in them are always cool. I love the black-and-white illustrations with Grag the robot and the Brain in them.  :whatev:

The Return of Captain Future is one of the top demand pulp covers these days.  My mind boggles at what that would go for if it was on a comic rather than a pulp...

I would call you a hoarder but I can't argue that it's a brilliant speculative investment.  I'll just be happy I managed to find one copy before you got the rest! ;)

Well, it's hard to deny being a hoarder.  lol  It's a common book for a pulp, but I just can't pass it up when I find one that presents well.  For most pulps that interest me, one nice copy is sufficient.  But certain books I hold in such high esteem I keep multiples of them.

So I shouldn’t buy the one on eBay for $1100.00 plus?

What would it be worth if it were a comic book Department?

Picked these up at the Flea Market on Sunday. Love the green Argosy baseball cover!

There is an older guy that often brings a box of random pulps to this show. He always keeps them in the truck until I get there...:banana:

The recent 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion has me thinking about WWII covers.  Here's a few fantastic Bergey war covers on sports pulps.

Popular Sports Magazine, Spring 1944
