    Description

    Mad #1 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. The pop-culture significance of Mad is well documented elsewhere in this catalog, and there's no more cherished prize than a near-perfect copy of #1. This copy is far nicer than any you would have plucked right off the rack in 1952, selected right off the press and lovingly preserved by EC Managing Editor Bill Gaines. Note that while CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2008 NM- 9.2 value = $7,000. CGC census 9/08: 6 in 9.8, none higher.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 0090991001 and purchase grader's notes if available.
