Friday night auction

Just got back from the Hamilton. auction, where many deals could be found. The highlights of the auction went cheaper than I expected: the Baumhoffer painting got $3500, and the Canadian Shadow #1 went for $1000. Overall, I’d say most lots went for roughly $100-200. The Hamilton art was sold for roughly $100-200 for b&w, color paintings for $200-500. Surprisingly, the nice-looking Canadian Doc Savage #1 went for $240.

I won the auction I needed to win; the 7 issues of Doc from 1933, which means I’ve now completed the Doc Savage pulp collection. And I picked up a small lot at the end of random pulps. I was surprised to find one of the books in that lot was signed on the cover by Baumhoffer!


  1. Congratulations, Matt! When you get home, you’ll have to write a detailed account of the convention, and list all of the goodies you bought. Dang, I miss going to conventions.

  2. Matt, thanks for taking the time to put this up. I wanted to go to this but couldn’t swing it because of work so I’m enjoying this vicariously through you! I just look at the pictures of the auction and sigh.

    Thanks again.

  3. Picture 3 looks like a collect of artwork by Hamilton. Correct?

    I’d love to see a book put out that reprints all his pulp artwork.

  4. Picture 5- the artwork along the window. Is that original pulp cover artwork??

    1. No, it’s Frank’s work. Oil paintings of classic pulp scenes.
