    Gothic Blimp Works #1-5, 7 Group (East Village Other, 1969). The notorious Underground tabloid, so hard to find in unfolded condition, was a treasure trove of great (and mostly never reprinted) art from the best in the business -- R. Crumb, S. Clay Wilson, Vaughan Bodé, Gilbert Shelton, and more. Here's a choice collection of nice, flat copies, including #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 7. The first three (all with Crumb covers) appear to be in the best condition; issues #4 and 5 were folded once long ago, while #7 has some tape repair on the front, and a tear on the back cover. Overall, the condition ranges from GD/VG to FN/VF. Approximate Fogel's Underground Price Guide value for group = $1,500.
