    Description

    Vault of Horror #38 Gaines File Copy 1/12 (EC, 1954) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Collecting black covers is a distinct genre. It is a difficult task to find them in high-grade since the black field shows even the most minor amount of wear. This book is the perfect specimen for such a collector, with art by the exemplary EC staff, including Graham Ingels, Jack Davis, Bernard Krigstein and Johnny Craig. This book was chosen by Bill Gaines, Russ Cochran, and Bob Overstreet as the nicest example of this issue among all 12 file copies. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $475.
