The right decision, of course, but missing Pulpfest makes me sad. :cry:

That suks...:sorry:

The last show I went to was the LA Paperback show the second week of March just days before the shutdown. There was a guy from out of state with about 4 tables of pulps of all kinds. So many cool ones and ones I'd never seen. His prices were so good, I literally spent every dollar I brought and could have easily spent a lot more. I just never get to see a spread of pulps like that. I could only imagine what the Pulp Fest is like.

Does anybody have any photos of past shows they can post or the Windy City show?

Lou Gehrig

This photo of Lou Gehrig was taken in early 1937, the last of Gehrig's great seasons.  The pulp is dated Jul-Aug 1937.  In 1938 his numbers began to slip due to the onset of the disease that would take his life, ALS.  By spring 1939 is was obvious something was seriously wrong with Gehrig and he removed himself from the lineup on May 2, 1939 after playing in a then record 2,130 consecutive games.   He passed away on June 2, 1941 at the age of 37.

Phenomenal books. Thanks for sharing these. It's a little ominous with the story "Unlucky Larruper"

A recent pickup. I've always liked electric chair covers on comics, so this is a natural extension. It's got some water staining on the spine, going a half inch into the covers, and a strip along the top, so rusty staples as well, but colors are strong. This was the second issue of a 1935 3 issue run. It seems a bit scarce to me, but I'd appreciate the experts chiming in as to whether its all that scarce or not.

I think it probably is pretty scarce. I don't recall ever seeing that one before.  Nice cover!

Bookery's guide lists it as scarce as well.

That exact copy came out of the big collection that I bought in June.  For the life of me I can’t remember who I sold it to.

Cool bunch of books. I purchased the book from DTA, so perhaps it was them.

Well, I must have seen it then!  I just don't remember it, probably because there were so many cool books, lol.

I can’t remember selling a group of books to Alexander,  but it might’ve been that I sold it at the Pulp Fest in Pittsburgh and somebody traded with him.

That is a stunner. Never seen it either. I would imagine if will be a while before I do if at all.

Incredible action on these Black Mask pulps today...I hope we have some winners here today 🙂

I actually thought they would go a little higher, other  the one Chandler which was about right at $1600.00

  However, I thought that some of the non-Chandler issues would go  higher than what they did.  


 I’ve chatted the seller at length, Who by the way is a very nice guy.
He is basically a picker that went over to a place to buy toy trains and while he was there he spotted a box of magazines that the guy was going to throw out, and it it were the pulps, so he bought them.
Nice Find!!

Wow! Awesome story... there are still finds :) They looked very fresh overall, not the usual ratty brittle things that are dragged out to auction.

He had this one on a “buy-it-now”, which I bought.  Very rare key issue issue and scarce in grade.  All Detective July, 1934:  (Doctor Death - 1st. appearance & cover!).  So much harder to get than any of the Dr. Deaths in his own run, especially in grade!

Really nice cover on that one. :applause:
