People already do. Ebayer, Blissard has been auctioning file copies of these and they always sell for stronger prices than surrounding Little Dot comics.

It’s not just a cover, it’s a great story!

In it, we encounter a much grimmer Dot, on a manhunt thru Bonnie Dell. See, if  you don’t love dots, then you’re L-7, Daddio!

Dot has come to hunt squares and chew bubble gum, and she’s all outta bubble gum!

I'm going to take a modicum of credit for this cover being a break-out. Many years ago, I had this one featured on flickr and it was one of a few postings that had the most views by far. That was back when flickr was relevant and a post of anything from a certain mid-century magazine or an old postcard would drive people over to the Bay, much like the Boards do now for certain genres. Dumb things is, I didn't bother to buy a minty copy first. I guess I'm no Hunt brother...  (shrug)

Since threads dealing with "classic covers" invariably veer off into people's favored covers, I'm offering up these examples with a grain of salt:

Can't leave out that bastion of good taste, Charlton:

Romita goodness with a non-superhero bent:

Heath magic:

Gotta have some love for the cartoons of the 60's (even if you call this 15c bronze):

This Cardy Aquaman cover deserves an honorable mention for a great layout:

And one of my all-time favorite silver age covers:

eBay guy refunded me!

Someone must have offered him more after I hit his BIN. He says he damaged it. Rassafrassin’ sidewinder!

Oh, that's just wrong.  If he were telling the truth, there would be a discounted price he'd be willing to sell it to you for.

There are lots of terrific Mystery In Space covers featuring Adam Strange.

Man I just can't get enough of those DC grey-tone covers! Any one of them is an instant classic cover.
