    Vault of Horror #27 Double Cover With EC Mailing Envelope (EC, 1952) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. We were stunned to see that this copy was not from William Gaines' files. It's actually from the collection of EC fan-addict and collector Gary Arlington, who stored it inside the original subscription mailing envelope. That envelope is included here, and it bears Arlington's handwritten arrival date: August 1, 1952. The Johnny Craig cover(s!) has never looked better. Craig, Jack Davis, George Evans, and Graham Ingels art. CGC notes, "1st cover 9.6, interior cover 9.8." Overstreet 2014 NM- 9.2 value = $635. CGC census 11/14: 4 in 9.8, 1 higher. From the Gary Arlington Collection.
