    Description

    Mad #16 Gaines File pedigree 3/12 (EC, 1954). Kurtzman's hilarious "newspaper" cover leads off this near-perfect copy of Mad. This is #3 from the Gaines File; razor-sharp corners and amazing clarity make this look as fresh as if it were printed yesterday. Only apparent flaws are the bottom staple rolled 1/4" on to the back cover, and both covers are slightly off-register. CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet 2001 NM 9.4 value = $420.
