    Super High-Grade MAD #1!

    Mad #1 Gaines File pedigree 3/12 (EC, 1952). The humor book that started it all! This is a beautiful example of this classic, and historically significant book. From the personal collection of William Gaines, this is copy #3 of 12 from the Gaines File pedigree collection. Great eye appeal, clean cuts, and sharp corners with just the slightest imperfection at the bottom of the spine. According to CGC, this is one of the nicest they have seen. CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. Overstreet 2001 NM 9.4 value = $6,500.
