    Description

    Mad #50 Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1959) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. This big 50th issue sports another great cover by Frank Kelly Freas. The book features a "Peter Gunn" parody, a True Confessions magazine satire, and a classic "Spot That Plug" TV spoof. Then of course there's the interior art by Mort Drucker, Wally Wood, Don Martin, Dave Berg, and Joe Orlando. Add all that up with the fact that it's received the highest CGC grade to date, and you've got about 50 reasons to buy this issue. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $165. CGC census 11/05: 2 in 9.8, none higher.
