Classic "Pulps"
Sperry Mini Mags - 1992

Notes:  This series features covers from Science Fiction and Fantasy "pulp"
magazines from the 1930s through the 1950s. Card #93 was printed in two 
ways, with a normal image and an inverted image (rotated 180 degrees). This 
is one example of an "error card" that has received collector interest.  Thanks
much to Steve Lillard for the update!
