Standard/Better/Nedor Collected Editions?

Hello, 

I am curious if there are any trade paperback or hardcover collected editions out there for Standard/Better/Nedor comics. 

I was looking specifically to see if there were any collected editions for America's Best Comics. I did a search and couldn't find anything, so I am thinking no, but figured I would check with the experts. 

Thanks

I am not sure about collected editions.  Since they are in the public domain, you can access them online but I understand wanting a book.

Here is a link to the America's Best series

Nice, thanks. Yeah, I am a big fan of reading hardcopies. I'm thinking it's because it is in the public domain maybe, so no one has an exclusive license for the material.

I love all of these books.  I actually have complete runs of ABC, BT, Exciting, FY, Startling, Thrilling, and Wonder.  All CGCed with lots of dupes.  It took me nearly 20 years to complete it.  I started on it since I loved Timelys and Schomburg but couldn't afford those.  Now I couldn't afford either lol

Nothing special at all except with me.  I started out only collecting Schomburg covers and this was the first non-Schomburg in my runs that I bought and just liked it.  Incredibly dumb to have so many copies, I know.

well, it is a bit eccentric, but whatever floats your boat. Good taste though as the ABC, exciting series doesn't get the respect it deserves. I just picked this up and would love to read a hardback collection. Folks be missing out!

Ha, well I think it’s pretty cool. I great cover on that one for sure! I really love the ABC #1 cover too…it just really pops to me. I may need to find a copy of that one day.

Very nice! Really wish someone would reprint all of these in a nice trade or hardback edition!
