    Whitman and Gold Key 3-Packs and other Unopened Pre-Packs Group (Whitman and Gold Key, 1967-84). Here are the most bagged Whitman 3-Packs you're ever going to see in one place, and all of them are unopened! One in particular will be a real eye-opener for the Uncle Scrooge collector, it's the earliest known Uncle Scrooge pre-packed comic book (issue #69) dating from May 1967 - consider that until now, it was an accepted fact among collectors that the first Uncle Scrooge pre-pack originated around late 1972 or early 1973! In addition to that amazing find (which is a 5-Pack), we've got 15 3-Packs, four 2-Packs, two 4-Packs, and even an 18-Pack! The latter is a bag with three pouches, each containing six mini-comics, with a printed price of 98ยข for the bunch -- the comics are the 1976 Mini Comics measuring 3 1/4 by 6 1/2 inches (Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge, etc.). The majority of these pre-packs are from the early 1980s. As for the various bag styles, not to mention the different logo styles on the comics, they're too numerous to mention. And do we need to mention that many of these Whitman issues were only released in these pre-packs, and only sold in department stores, supermarkets, etc., not on newsstands? Due to the nature of these pre-packs, we can't determine every comic included in them, but we can confirm that the following comics are in there: Uncle Scrooge #69, 103, 104, 114, 117, 130, 154, 155, 162-170, 174, 176-178, 185-187, 191, 193, 195, 197, 200, 201, 204, and 205; Looney Tunes #43; Donald Duck #216, 219, 221, 234, and 236; Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #130, 493, and 495; and Huey, Dewey, and Louie #74. Since these Whitman issues are extremely difficult to find "in grade," you'll be pleased to know that the condition of the comics inside is excellent. Bid on 'em, enjoy 'em, but whatever you do, don't cut 'em open!
