    Crypt of Terror #17 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. The first issue of this title carried over the numbering from Crime Patrol, and it was in effect the first EC New Trend title to hit the newsstands in 1950. It's currently ranked as one of the Top 10 Horror Books by Overstreet, a position it has held for many years. Johnny Craig provided the cover, as well as interior art, along with Al Feldstein and George Roussos. Note that while CGC certifies this copy as a Gaines file copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $5,200. CGC census 4/12: 2 in 9.8, none higher.
