    Four Color #961-1020 Bound Volumes (Dell, 1958-59). For collectors of Dell Comics' massive Four Color series, this group of five bound volumes is for you! And what a collection between those covers - two years worth of various one-shots, including lots of TV Westerns (Maverick, Wagon Train, The Lawman, The Rifleman, and more). There's more television (Leave It To Beaver), funny animal (including a Grandma Duck's Farm Friends, with art by Carl Barks), newspaper strip adaptations (Peanuts), movies (The Shaggy Dog), and lots more. The issue numbers range from #961 to 1020. All comics were file copies that had been bound and trimmed; most retain their like-new appearance. Approximate Overstreet VG 4.0 value for group = $1,500.

    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.
