Greetings,   Gang! 

Got  a  regular  thread started over  in   G/S/B,  here's where  all  the weird  stuff  is going to  land. And yes,   I  have  some weird  stuff,  lol

DA RULEZ

I'll put up a big scan of the FC,  note anything else I spot,  and as always,  if you'd like a scan 
of the  back cover I'll be happy to  supply it.

Shipping to USA preferred, but if you want something sent to Canada or overseas PM me 
and we'll work something out. 
 
:TAKEIT:  rules the roost,  but PM's, kibitzing,  and general tomfoolery  are welcome.

$8.50  Priority shipping to the USA for one to  four comics, well packed in a padded  envelope.   
$15 boxed  Priority  for  larger quantities.  Canada or overseas to be determined.

SOME OF THE ITEMS  I'M GOING TO  LIST  ARE  GOING  TO  HAVE  INDIVIDUAL  SHIPPING  QUOTES  IN  THE TEXT,  I HAVE
SOME  BULKY  ITEMS  AND SOME  HEAVY  ITEMS  TO  SELL.  BUT I THINK  I  CAN  FIT  ANYTHING  I'M  SELLING  INTO  A 
MEDIUM    FLAT  RATE  PRIORITY  BOX  OF  ONE  SIZE  OR  ANOTHER,  SO  MAX  SHIPPING SHOULD BE  FIFTEEN BUCKS

 
CHECK OR MONEY ORDER  PREFERRED, I just plain out don't like paypal.   

If you just GOTTA pay with paypal  PM me and we'll work something out.

Returns for any reason on your dime,  and  for any missed major  flaw or bad description on my dime.

Here we go!

I'm starting out  with  the  coolest  children's book  I've  ever run  across.  Check the  many  pictures  attached,  this one is  wild. 

Gabby  Hayes  Tall Tales For Little  Folks
A Bonnie  Jack-In-The-Box  Book

Copyright 1955, Samuel Lowe Company,  Kenosha  Wisconsin. 

Same format as a  Little  Golden  Book, but if  you  look  at  the front  cover  you'll see  three  round  spots.  Turns out they are little  grommets 
that go through  the  cover,  acting as hinges  for...well,  take  a  look  at  the  pictures.  Every  page  shows  Gabby  dressed  in  another outfit, 
as does the back  cover.   Great fun,  and this copy is sharp.  Touch of  general  wear  on  the cover,  the  interior is bone  white  and  untouched.  
Gabby's hinges  are  gorgeous,   there's  one tiny  tear  on  the  LH  boot,  otherwise  that's  IT.  

I  looked  this up  on  ABE Books,  there are only  three  copies  listed, one taped up  copy  at  $30+,  and  two  about the same  as this one  
at  $85  and $95

I'm asking  $75

Aurora model you say???

I do indeed say,  but  I won't get  to  it this  evening.  I'll  tell you  that  the box  is  sharp,  the  instructions  are still with  it, but  the model 
has  been  partially built  and  partially  painted,   I'll figure out  how  to  take  a  bunch  of  pix  and  get it  loaded  tomorrow  evening.

And  no,   I'm not going  to  tell  you  WHICH  model,  lol

Now HERE'S a  weird  bit indeed. 

Spors Book of Bargains 1939

Pulp  magazine  sized

Over 250 pages  of   tiny  display  ads  and  classifieds  selling EVERYTHING. The one that caught my  eye was  a company
selling  safety razors  at  eight  cents  apiece,  or if  you  got  them  by  the gross,  a nickel  each. Every page  is  full  of   ads 
like  that.  

The only  thing I've ever seem  that  approached  this much  compact  crazy was  a  company  called  JerryCo,  that  sent  similar 
although  much  smaller  catalogs  around  in the late 1980's. THOSE  were full  of  cool  weird stuff too. 

Tight enough  with  some wear and tear  lower  spine.

Asking $15 for  a cool  oddball.

Vice Squad  V1 #2.  Feb 1961

Well,  according  to  the article  Marilyn Monroe was  molested  when she was nine. With all the MM  stuff out there over the years  this  is the first
time I've seen that  particular story, Article  with one  small  head shot,  for  what it's worth.  The  rest of the articles  are  every bit  as   salacious. 

Flat and tight,   glossy,  white pages, but something  has   ground  along the entire spine,  the whole spine strip is  MIA. 

Asking  $5  for  a  whole  bunch  of  1961  sex  articles.  SOLD!
