    Mad #30 White Mountain pedigree (EC, 1956) CGC VF+ 8.5 Off-white to white pages. While this wasn't the first appearance of Alfred E. Neuman, it was the debut of the classic depiction of Alfred that has become famous, i.e. the Norman Mingo rendition. As such, this is one of the most collectible of the magazine-size issues. Contributing interior art were Bob Clarke (his debut on Mad), Reed Crandall, Wally Wood, Jack Davis, Bill Elder, and Don Martin. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $325; VF/NM 9.0 value = $500. CGC census 3/06: 2 in 8.5, 4 higher.
