    Description

    House of Mystery #174 (DC, 1968) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. One of the breakout books of the past few years. Prior to this issue, Robby Reed of "Dial 'H' for Hero" had full rein over this title. With #174, the format became mystery, and new host Cain took over in the next issue. This book, featuring a striking Carmine Infantino cover, is not as common as one might think. High-grade copies are nearly impossible to find, understandable because for so many years the unappreciated copies languished in dealers' 25¢ boxes! This beauty is tied as the highest CGC-graded copy to date. Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $170. CGC census 6/09: 5 in 9.6, none higher.
