That copy was from the Robert Weinberg collection, in great VG++/FN shape, and sold by Heartwood Auction.
Heartwood had the first (or second) table near the entrance to the right and that red cover stood boldly out, perched high on an easel, as collectors first came in.
There was a $350.00 price tag on it but they quickly took $300.00 for a first big sale of the event.
Heritage Auctions had a 3 issue set that sold a year earlier in November 2012 for $567.63
