Now, like GA-Tor did with his Centaurs, a one a day posting of the whole collection with a little story about each would be awsome!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and all the ships at sea, a magic moment in my collecting life has arrived! :acclaim:

Thanks to a very nice boardie (with an assist from another very nice boardie), :foryou::foryou: I have finally landed the last book that I needed to complete the Baker St John romance run.  :banana::banana::banana::banana:

Great.  I guess you'll be trying to talk me out of my Little Dots now...:whistle:

That one is way into my top 10 Baker covers. Just a year or so ago I had a mid grade copy up for sale at what I really thought was a fair price. Just couldn't sell it because it wasn't a "romance" issue. A wise buyer eventually bought even though I was sticking to my price. Seems like a giveaway price now.

Couple "cheap" ones have returned to me...although these don't seem so cheap anymore lately.  Pretty happy with the Hawk 10, haven't seen many of these...although there is a low grade copy on Superworld if anyone's dying for one.

Thanks...super proud of myself on this one, had a horrid stain on the cover on the right side that I "dry cleaned" myself with an eraser and a paper towel...true story.

Nice! I'll jump in that pool too. That redhead is smokin'. It took a while but people finally got wise that all of Baker's best work wasn't just romance. I have quietly been picking up decent copies of these APC for years and am just down to a couple now.

Many thanks to a couple of great boardies (you know who you are). A nice copy of one of my big wants is now in the junk pile! So stoked to cross the last of my Crowns off the list!  :x

:golfclap:Congrats RM!

I know you've been wanting that one for a while.  Lots of other greats did interiors on that one too.

Thanks Corey!  Yeah, early Baker cover with hot rods and an interior story.  Also, early Feldstein with his signature “headlights”.

Pretty surprised when I was offered a stack of "old comics" I think a couple are Bakers.
