Folks, this following email is from the fellow that saw we were looking for this Nov 20, 1943
Saturday Evening Post in which there was an article about my Uncle Herb (a B 25 Mitchell Bomber Pilot
in the China theater during world war 2 - done just before he & crew were shot down & killed) as posted
on our airplane pages out of BAD Chariots .... Steve saw our request for that magazine & contacted us
... he only wanted $10.00 including shipping for it ...... now that may be the going price for these
..... but not that one special date for us!!
We sent him more for finding our wants from the
internet for this special magazine!! We do not collect magazines ...... only this special one!
Uncle Herb was awarded 4 Purple Hearts, the Air Medal & the Flying Cross. I feel it is my
responsibility to live his life for him too .... which he & other Veterans gave up to protect
all of us. To enjoy the freedom of this wonderful country & what it has to offer.
again Stephen Kriss.

Hi Dave and Becky.
I have been selling vintage magazines and paper
collectibles part time since 1980. I will be retiring in two years and then
will probably have the time to "fool around" with a web site and update it
on a routine and timely basis.
I am aware what dealers charge for various vintage magazines and the higher
prices for searching and individual covers, etc., and that I can easily
receive those prices for my inventory. However, I am not in a full time
business with overhead to worry about, and enjoy attempting to find or sell
an item at a price that makes one happy and gives me a small profit (which
is at present being used to complete a set of Saturday Evening Posts from
I can be contacted through the above email address or at 30 East 9th Street,
New York, NY 10003, should you wish to recommend me.
Once again, thanks for your generosity, concern and good thoughts.
All the best,
