    Description

    Mad #35 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1957) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. It was Mad's fifth anniversary, and the "usual gang of idiots" celebrated with a star-studded wraparound cover by Norman Mingo. Inside was a Cinderella parody, plus stellar art from the likes of Wally Wood, Reed Crandall, Joe Orlando, Don Martin, and Dave Berg. This terrific copy from the Gaines files has earned the highest grade yet assigned by CGC for issue #35. Overstreet 2006 NM- 9.2 value = $280. CGC census 3/06: 2 in 9.6, none 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.
