It appears that Dave Berg does his rendition of the Ingels cover in this art piece.

More dealer's room shots from OAFcon 2017 (Norman, Okla., just south of Okla. City). One thing unique about the two day Okla. Alliance of Fans Convention is that they're no longer charging admission for attending fans. From reports, this has been a much better show for comics and memorabilia collectors ...and dealers... than some of the larger cons.

OAFcon does have a Saturday programming track and guests, but it's much lower key with less overhead than the huge media shows that are promoted as "comic conventions" these days. Dealers table costs aren't stratospheric either, so it's easier to clear a profit...

Extremely rare Squa Tront collectible: an envelope design rejected by the U.S. Post Office due to the dimensions of Roger Hill's art exceeding postal code regulations. Very few of these were printed, but those were briefly made available for purchase by Jerry Weist when ordering multiple copies of his EC zine in the late 60's...

Can't believe I found this image! This is the officially approved Squa Tront shipping envelope from the late 60's that delivered the first couple of issues to me. Yes, the postage was that cheap! Yes, the envelope and contents arrived in great condition (U.S. postal service was pretty darn good back then). Yes, the parcel was delivered to the correct address with only my middle name "Cat" and no first or last name. No, I haven't lived in Oklahoma for several decades, so the address on the envelope is totally invalid.

In order to prompt bidding at these events, an auctioneer has to have good comedic timing and be entertaining. SF con patrons are a tough crowd!

@CatmanAmerica - If my eyes don’t deceive me, might that be one of your two 9.4 copies of The Human Torch #23 in front of Ms. RCM?
