Question please.  I am new to CGC and couldn't find anywhere regarding pedigree magazines.

About 5 years ago I purchased "Creepy" issues 1-4 from Heritage Auctions.  They had them listed as White Mountain pedigrees but didn't include any type of tangible authentication.  I trust that they are what they say they are since I have had good experiences with Heritage.  I still have the original invoice that states they are White Mountain pedigree but that's it.  Am I able to submit these to CGC for pedigree certification with that invoice as proof?

Thank you in advance !!

Doesnt it say White Mountain on the blue thing on top?

Thanks for that info. At least that seems like a pretty fair price...  :whistle:

Prices really vary these days on mags in general. A Vampi #5 CGC 9.0 sold for $75.00 6 months ago which I thought was a great deal. Mystified though when a CGC 9.8 falls short of $600.00 then 8 months later a CGC 9.6 sells for $1200.00. A friend bought his 9.6 last summer for just under $500.00?

As per GoCollect, most recent sales,

6.5 -- $175

7.5 -- $72

8.5 -- $115

So, this is true.

As a buyer my standing has always been to never regret over paying at times for quality because you’ll do fine in the long run.

For sellers though this must be stressful to never know if you are going to get burned by nearly giving something away or jumping for joy at getting someone willing to pay double or more of market values...

These books are not certified.  I guess "raw" is the term that is used.  They are in beautiful condition.  #1 is the worst of the bunch.  I would give it an 8.5, possibly 9.0.  But 2,3 & 4 should certify at 9.4 or higher.

If you're not planning on selling them, then I vote leave those mags alone.  If you are planning on selling, pm me before you certify.

White Mountain copies often have a date stamp at the top of the first page ... that would help with verification if that is the case with yours. GOD BLESS...

Like all but one of my pedigree magazines, this is from the John G. Fantucchio collection via MCS.  In today and I couldn't be happier, even with the obvious slight flaws I swear it has the new book smell 55 years after the fact:

Hard to believe this mag is 55 years old now?!?!
