And I think whoever won this one made a smart move.  Such a tough book and this copy presents very well (at least from the front!). http://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FCOMICTRACK%2FAUCTIONS%2FBIDS.ASP%3Fx%3D0%26y%3D0%26pg%3D1&id=1236842

That headline is rather funny; top-5 graded out of...6.

It did make me check the census and was surprised to find Teen-Age Diary Secrets #5 (nn) only has 1 graded copy. I wonder if I should make it 2.

The other Baker photo covers don't get much love.

And it won't take too much to top this one! :)

That doesn't look bad for a 4.0.

Congrats to whoever won this one.  I was the underbidder.  Just couldn't quite get myself to go higher since I own a 5.5 copy. http://www.comiclink.com/Auctions/item.asp?back=%2FCOMICTRACK%2FAUCTIONS%2FBIDS.ASP%3Fx%3D0%26y%3D0%26pg%3D1&id=1236407

I was extremely tempted to bid on it. Had I not just purchased 4 nice LB Cole books in the last two weeks I would have bid it higher. I thought it would easily go for over 4K and maybe even hit 6K.

TAR 39 apparently is a tough book, and this was a copy that I would have loved to own (I've never owned a TAR 39).

Figured it would go north of $4k, maybe up to $5k, still $3,400 is nothing to sneeze at!

I have a feeling that the winner probably sniped in a bid at the $4K to $5K range.

Yeah.  I was hoping it would be about 2k less. :$

Wow, going up in price.

I wasn't following the auctions.  Any other Baker books in the mix?

For years I've been predicting a closing of the gap between Phantom Lady values and Baker romance values.  After seeing the results of several recent auctions... I'd say, that gap, she is a-closin'.

Absolutely. I believe you are on point with your prediction.

In addition to the TR 39 and the TADS 6, I believe there was also a Diary Secrets 21 in 5.5.  I forget what it sold for...  

Edit: It sold for $1,655.

I've had two of these books both bought without the "Marilyn" factor.  Wish I would have kept the other one awhile longer.  I sold my lower grade one for a couple of hundred and thought that was a great deal at the time.   Low grade copy I used to have.

I always wanted to upgrade this TLP5 but never was able to.  Anyone have a high grade on this?

Thanks for not bidding higher. I was surprised to get it for $3400.
