Where's Sqeggs? He can come on and just finish this off. :roflmao:

Now, the big question. Who is going to volunteer to take all these photos and put them consecutively in alpha numeric order all in one place?

I posted originally to post covers one at a time. I have no problem doing the whole thing in alpha numeric order. Hopefully I'm able to.

The next Group of five books are probably most likely some of the ones left out by the 'experts'. GCD and/or The Art of Glamour tout these as Baker covers (pencils) with Colleta inks. With a resume like Bakers there had to be some cover assignments along with those interiors. I'm in agreement as these don't look like 'pure' sole Colleta works when compared with his other covers.

Though weakened by illness, you can still see touches of the master in these works. Compare the smiling woman on the left with smiling background women on other covers posted and you can see Baker had a hand in here. The profile of the woman on the right has Baker hallmarks too. Recent upgrade

This one has the kind of 'layout ' similar to his St. John covers. And the interiors credited (and accepted by many here) to Baker look like just these Coletta collaboration covers

..and last but not least. One that i think may be his final cover 

..you may throw rocks at me now :fear:

Note: while I don't think the original OP is obligated to add the Atlas books to the 'official' checklist, much like robot man's sentiments for posting Phantom Lady 17 (though that has been credited as a Baker cover for many more years than these) I think they should stay in the Thread. Some may come to different conclusions after being able to see how they 'flow' in the Thread in terms of look/style along with the other covers

I didn't see this one yet.

It Rhymes With Lust, #nn 1950

I no longer own this copy, but it's a beauty.  When I had it slabbed it was the single highest graded copy at 8.0. There has since been a second 8.0 copy added to the census.  Here are my scans before and after slabbing.

Thanks for posting that one Fury. I had totally forgotten that was a Baker cover even after looking at my own copy. doh!

I say leave them in maybe with an *. They definitely have his hand in them. Thanks for posting the Quality and Atlas covers. I think they often get forgotten due to the tremendous amount of great work he did for St John.

I tried uploading the front/back collage of 17Mb, but CGC didn't like that.  I'll reduce size and repost the better image...
