Description

    Vault of Horror #12 Northford Pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. While just two copies currently top the grade of this lovely example of the first issue of the title formerly known as War Against Crime, neither of those two copies have ever come up for public auction, so this may be your best shot at grabbing a high-grade #12. It is tied with Crypt of Terror as the first horror comic. Overstreet designates the books as "scarce." Johnny Craig provided the torture cover and interior art, and Al Feldstein, Wally Wood, and Harvey Kurtzman also contributed art for the book. Overstreet 2016 VF/NM 9.0 value = $6,922; NM- 9.2 value = $9,500. CGC census 5/17: 3 in 9.0, 2 higher.

    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.
