Happy Birthday Amazing Stories – Here’s My Oldest Issue (Dec 1926)

I learned from Steve Davidson’s Amazing Stories blog that today is the 88th birthday of science fiction’s first magazine. In honor of that birthday, here is a picture of my oldest issue of Amazing, sent to me by a fan of my Vacation in the Golden Age posts. It’s the December 1926 issue. That makes this issue part of Amazing’s first year of publication, but the issue itself is not quite 88 years old (although from the wear and tear, it certain looks it).
