Listed in Overstreet as Baker, but not on the Grand Comics Database.  A quick look and none of the stories scream Baker, although that could be the code changes.  Anybody know for sure?

Still, definitely got some real Baker today at ECCC, even if the Love Secrets 55 was mislabeled.  Normally wouldn't have grabbed the brittle 101, but for $3 I'll work with it!

Conversation with the seller.  "Those are Baker?"  (He looked at the back cover) "Those are Baker!"

Lassies are the cheapest way to get Bakers.

Yep...got this from Metro 2 years ago for $15 as a VF.  Thought I read somewhere that this stamp means this book is an actual in house file/reference copy used by Dell or their printer? Anyone know if that's accurate?

Yes, that’s a file copy.  Nice one!

The more I think about it, the more I think Diary Secrets combined with Teen-Age Diary Secrets and Blue Ribbon and the nn issue is the hardest Baker St. John run to complete. Any thoughts on what the ranking of runs would be?

I'm not sure I would lump those all together.  Blue Ribbon with those funny animal issues doesn't jive with the romance (and I hate the #2 cover).  I've always focused on "runs" as the GCD labels them.  Having said that, photo covers was never my thing and I didn't pursue the Teen-age Diary Secrets issues.  I would say with the Marilyn issue and the pocket sized issues that you'd have a tough time finishing that set (Marilyn only because its expensive...).  As for the Diary Secrets, the NN issue is pretty scarce and is one of three I would need to complete that run (if you consider the NN as part of the run).  Diary Secrets is definitely a tough one to assemble.

Do you also consider Going Steady as part of the Teen-age Temptations set?  And what was Romantic Marriage a continuation of?

It seems to me that the toughest run would be All-Picture All-True Love Story.  It all depends on the books you decide to include in your "runs".

I group romantic marriage with cinderella love and I do group teen-age temptations with going steady. I don't count the funny animal covers but I don't see a change in name with a similar format as the end of a run...but I don't count cinderella love 13 as part of it either. I'm only concerned with the Baker covers or interiors but I have it anyway.

I think Going Steady would be near the top of the list.  Have you finished the sets?

No...:sorry:

But I'm working on all of them...I see ones I need all the time but prices can be very prohibitive. I have about half...
