    Description

    Weird Fantasy #16 (#4) Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white pages. Harvey Kurtzman's story in this issue from 1950 takes place in 1970. It predicts: "Television is now everywhere! Every country in the world, every home, every person, watches television!" In addition to that prophetic piece, the issue has an Al Feldstein cover and art by Feldstein, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kamen, and Wally Wood. The issue was mentioned in Seduction of the Innocent, oddly enough not for any pierced eyeballs or the like, but for using the slangy contraction "we'da" for "we would have." Note that while CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File Copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $870. CGC census 3/05: 1 in 9.6, 1 higher.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
