Maybe it’s just what I was looking at but some of the prices in this auction seemed unusually high in Heritage. I posted in the magazine thread about the CGC 9.0 copy of Eerie #23 that sold for $625.00 when another CGC 9.0 copy just sold for $260.00 in May. A single bump in PQ was all the difference in the two. 

I spoke with a few friends and a boardie here that all warned me the Yakima’s were all going well above market. 

I guess I’ll see if this is some turn in the market for some of this stuff or just one of those isolated auctions where it’s great to be a seller...hm

Prices in the Yakimas’s were ridiculous as some of them are only FN and fine/very fine.

Someone recently asked me if the Yakima collection was like the mile high collection and I smiled and said NO,  that would definitely be the Strasser collection (and I’m someone that has 40 shadows from the Yakima collection).

Any word on that Strasser pedigree back story???

Pedigree fever. As has been said, as nice as Yakimas are, they aren’t all the same uniform high grade like the Church books are. People love pedigrees and there are very few pulp ones I can think of.

Yes, pulps have been gaining some steam lately. Compared to comics, pulps are a real bargain. Comics are VERY cover driven. There are more pulps with better covers than comics. The argument I get is that pulps are just text inside as apposed to illustrations. But when a comic is slabbed, it becomes the same as a pulp. So I still say: “If it were a comic book what would it be worth?”. 

Seems some are getting wise to this...

I’ve got a few Spicy going here that someday I will get around to taking pics of but here are a few from yesterday I picked up, relatively cheap.  

I think Spicy Detective is my favorite of the series of pulps.

Finally had every golden age book I wanted pass through my fingers so now let’s do every pulp I like. :)

Having fun so far. Want to find some time to break them open more and read some.

The real difference is the mile high’s started  right from the very beginning with all the key books, the  Yakima’s basically started with the main bulk of the group late 1938 and up, which Certainly is far from the most significant era of the pulps, as any pulp collector knows.

Michael Naimen really has no idea about pulps,  he was in the comic field And I knew him well when I was buying golden age.

He probably had this article Sent to him, I suspect for promotion.

Don’t get me wrong I really like the Yakima’s, And I have about 60 of them in my collection, but they were really hyped for the purpose of making a lot of money and taking advantage of comic guys who wanted to jump into the pulp field for speculation.

At some point I will when I have time explain the background of the Strasser collection!

I have explained it on these forms before but I can’t remember where.

Totally down for this if you do it.

Also weren’t you here years before what it’s showing  as your join date or are you a new detective35???

The Yakimas are akin to the Vancouver Pedigree -- unbeliveibably white but a few years later than the era of the most significant pulps.

I will never have every GA book I want. Pulps are just a “supplement” and always will be.

Well, I hear ya. Sure, I would like some of the ones I didn’t have and am still looking for new ones, but I got all the ones I targeted.   

Definitely enjoying pulps so far too. My favorite thing about this hobby is all the highways, streets and back alleys you can explore.
