    Description

    Mad #1 (EC, 1952) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. Mad is now 50 years old, and this is the one that started it all. The importance of this first issue cannot be overemphasized, as it was the beginning of a book that has remained EC's sole survivor. This is a particularly nice copy, coming close to rivaling the Gaines file copies. The page quality is very close to perfection, and only the slightest wear along the top edge keeps this book from being Near Mint. Since its place in history is well secured, a copy this nice will really be a showcase piece in any collection. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $7,000.
