The Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention, held annually in Chicago, is known for having great auctions full of stunning pulp magazines for sale, many from the collections of some of the finest collectors in the world. Judging from what I've heard and from the list below, it looks like this year's auction (held last weekend) was no exception. Most of the collection came from the estate of well-known collector and comic authority Jerry Weist, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
Many, many thanks to Barry Traylor, who was kind and patient enough to sit through the auction and jot down the winning prices. The only ones he wasn't able to get were some of the Edgar Rice Burroughs books.
Each lot has a handwritten number written at the end of the description: that is the price - in dollars - it sold for. If you do a double take, you're not alone.
