    Description

    Amazing Mysteries #33 (Marvel, 1949). The very first horror comic from Marvel cover features "The Thing in the Vault!" A beautiful, scarce example of an early Pre-Code horror book, this copy is clean and flat with rich colors, good strike, and sharp corners. There is some spine stress, and slight wear to the top and bottom spine, along with some light tanning on the back cover, but overall this is a very appealing book. A must for any Pre-Code Horror collection! CGC VF/NM 9.0 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 NM 9.4 value = $300.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
