    Description

    Tales From the Crypt #20 (#1) Gaines File pedigree 1/11 (EC, 1950) CGC 9.8 NM/MT Off-white to white pages. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. Okay, maybe there's a speck of dust on this book, but this numero uno copy from the files of Bill Gaines just rocks! This is the first issue of the premiere horror comic title ever published, and its influence has extended beyond comics, as there have been two movies and a TV series based on this title. According to the CGC census, this is the highest-graded copy as of this writing. Overstreet 2002 NM 9.4 value = $1,350.

    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.
