FANTASTIC (FOUR) NEWS! Pedigree Comics' December World's Greatest Fantastic Four Comic Magazine Auction is underway. The auction began on the night of Wednesday, December 1st and lasts for two weeks (14 days) until the night of Wednesday, December 14th as a separate event on the Pedigree Comics website (www.PedigreeComics.com). There is no Buyers Premium on any of the lots in the auction and EVERY Fantastic Four book from the collection is listed with no reserve. Every book is CGC graded and the minimum bid is only $100 for this exclusive Fantastic Four auction. You can view and bid on the high grade Fantastic Four comics in the Auction Preview right now (over 250 high grade issues!). Just go to the Pedigree Comics website and click on the Auction banner.

The collection (called the Central London Collection) comes out of Great Britain from a high grade collector and Fantastic Four enthusiast who put together one of the very best Fantastic Four runs in the world. This unreal collection took many years to put together and he decided now was the right time to sell. Many of the early issues and issues in the teens are in 8.0 and 8.5. The issues in the 20's are mostly 8.5 and then climb to 9.0 and higher in the 30's. By issue #39, the books are all 9.2 and 9.4 and are all 9.4 and higher beginning with Fantastic Four #51. Then, almost EVERY issue is a 9.6 starting with FF #71 and all are 9.6 and 9.8 starting with Fantastic Four #101. Finally, every issue is a 9.8 from Fantastic four #166 through #250!

The Annuals are all in high grade, including #1 and #2 in 9.0, #3 in 9.6, #4 in 9.4, #5 in 9.8 and the in-demand Annual #6 in 9.4.

The collector was incredibly picky and anal with page quality, as almost every book in the collection has white or off-white to white page quality (over 96% are either white or off-white to white) and most of the later issues are a stunning "BONE WHITE".

He would not buy any books with cream to off-white or lower page quality unless that particular copy was the absolutes nicest looking one he could find (and that happened twice!). He did not like imperfect staples so every one of his books has perfect staples and staple placement, with no books having staples appearing on the front cover. He also did not like stress lines so practically every single comic in the collection has absolutely no stress lines! He was very picky about eye appeal and centering so almost every book has exact registration and centering and an unread look, including many of the early issues. He loved books from original owner collections and would buy and upgrade to one whenever he could and thus the collection contains many gorgeous original owner books.

The collection is near-complete and only issue #'s 1, 3, 120 and 124 are missing from the run!! Every Fantastic Four Annual from #1 to #6 is included.

All 250-plus issues are live to bid on right now in the December World's Greatest Fantastic Four Comic Magazine Auction and are offered with no reserve amount. There are many great issues and iconic covers in the run to choose from.
