I'm getting rid of my paperbacks on Ebay and wonder if anyone recallys Korem's Upside Down Toppit.

These were limited books issued in 78/80 (1 and 2) with a couple of simple gimmicks. At the time, they cost about a million dollars, if I recall correctly.

I've never seen them sold.

Can anyone give me a clue on value?

It would be appreciated.

Steve, I believe he sold them for something like $125! Maybe I'm crazy.

$125? That would have meant that I was crazy! But I can't remember (maybe. It was before I got married and became "fiscally responsible"...HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Jeez I crack myself up sometimes...)

Dig into that Genii file and find an ad. I have a letter from Korem dated 8/19/80 and it was in regard to a question from Volume 2. So the ads were running in early 1980/late '79. In Genii years, that probably means magazines dated early to mid '79. I'd look, but mine are in storage.
