Baker!

The funny thing is that I don't usually like photo covers, but this one is a classic and the girl is gorgeous. Plus who can refuse a pretty girl who gives boys the green light

Um, actually, apparently Baker could!

Just bought the cover to marry with a coverless I already had. That usually gives me more satisfaction than buying a higher grade one.  I always lived the yellowsonthe cover. I think having them in the title too really makes it pop.

So I was surprised this morning to see this post come through on a Facebook group. A long time collector had some extra time and decided to sort his books on his kitchen table this weekend. That's some sorting!

It just goes to show that there are still plenty of raw gems out there destined to come for sale someday!!

Jeeze! What a haul!  Yep, a lot of raw GA still in collector's hands out there.

That photo reminded me of this old one...

Not personally. I was a LOT younger than he was. Through a couple of much older friends, I did get to go over to his house once. The books on the bed that the cat was walking on were his "under copies". He had quite the collection. He was one of the first deep pocket collectors. I think Yellow Kid knew him pretty well.

This is my first post on the golden age threads!:preach:

I absolutely love golden age Timleys! 

Here is a extremely tough Timely that never comes up, Stan Lees first super hero! The mighty Destroyer in Mystic comics 10, the last issue with a extremely low print run!! 

Anything with Destroyer i immediately fall in love with! He's such an awesome golden age character! My favorite Timely super hero by far, and also like i earlier mentioned, Stan Lees first superhero creation along side with Jack binder! which most people don't even know about. I had to have CGC change the label on my mystic comics 6 which is destroyers first appearance!

Welcome to the GA board!  Great book.

Really love those Powell Shadow covers!  Very hard to pick a favorite of these four.

Supes 1, Batman 1, Flash 1, All Star 3, All-American 16 -- dang. I don't see the Action 1 or the Detective 27, but I'm still looking! ;-)
