As Todd knows, I picked up a large collection of nearly 800 pulps.

In this collection were a group of Weird Tales that were so incredible that they looked like they were reprints.   I have over 200 books from the Strasser collection and over 100 Yakima’s, plus a number of killer File Copies, and these books are as nice as the upper 1% of the nicest of those pedigrees, and Nicer!!

Believe me I love the Strasser’s and Yakima’s, but this group of weird tales are pushing to another level.  The inks still look wet on the cover like they were just printed!  Pictures don’t do them justice as the whites on the logo are blazing white, no matter what I couldn’t get the pics to show the whiteness with my limited photography skills...LOL!

I can not believe the vibrancy and lushness of these black and blue covers!  I have a Yakima and it’s very nice but not like these!  Would love to see more examples from this collection when you have time.   Thanks for posting!!

Those Blaine covers are incredible.  Many of those books are scarce in any condition let alone the stunning examples you found!

A few more things from the collection.

13/15 of the following pulps came from the collection except for the “Tropical Take”  and the “Firefighter” cover which were just traded with items from this collection!

A couple of them have issues here and there but all have nice white paper and bright colourful glossy covers!

Probably overpaid, but wanted the book ever since I saw it on here.

There is no overpaying for that title. So classic and hard to find. I only wish I could find some to overpay for. 

All you gotta ask yourself, it how much would it be if it were a comic and there is your answer.
