    Vault of Horror #25 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1952) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Two con men put on a fake seance... but is it really fake? That's the "hook" of the story drawn by Johnny Craig in this issue (the cover is also by Craig). And that's just a warm-up for the horror tale drawn by Graham Ingels in the same issue. It's called "Collection Completed," and we're not talking about a run of ECs, either. The issue also has stories drawn by Jack Davis and Jack Kamen. This is the highest-graded copy that CGC has certified for this issue to date. Note that while CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $535. CGC census 1/05: 1 in 9.4, none higher
