I know that back in the day, some art was held and trashed by the studios and some was returned to the creators.
But I have never really seen any top covers for sale.
AF #15, AMS #1, FF#1 etc. are they locked in collections or are they out there.

I've got a stack of them propping up coffee table. Why, are they worth something?

The Anthony Castrillo one? Thanks!

As for classic SA covers, maybe my classics aren't everyone's, but I know that the Mystery In Space 90 and Flash 123 covers have survived the years. Both are in CAF galleries.

Actually, come to think of it, so is the cover OA for Crime SuspenStories 22 (a bit earlier than your OP, but pretty close).

I have just never seen these type of covers for sale.
My 1st choice given unlimited choice and money, would be a sci-fi cover of some sort.
Probably a Mystery in Space.
I wish.

They are all out there. 20 years ago I heard, many times removed, a story of someone walking into the Marvel offices and seeing XXX going through a stack of key covers.

Most Marvel art already has examples going back to FF3, even farther pre-hero. Its all there, as I have said for many years..in the dark hole of collecting. Those that don't need the admiration of other collectors to enjoy their art hold the keys.
