Much of The SFCA Price Guide was lifted from the Overstreet Price Guide.  The ad copy refers to the Overstreet Guide without naming it.  When Overstreet cited G.B. Love with copyright infringement, it was pulled from circulation.  Unsold copies are said to have been destroyed, which is unfortunate, because The SFCA Price Guide contains interesting features such as early checklists on the work of Frank Frazetta, Wally Wood, Al Williamson and Basil Wolverton.

Actual dimensions are 6 x 8-3/4.

Ad is from RBCC #107.
