Pedigree offers 2 incredible high grade, CGC certified runs starting this July 4th Weekend!!

Posted: 7/5/2005

Beginning on Friday, July 1st, will be offering two large, CGC certified runs of exceptional comic books on its new arrivals section. The first run is a ridiculous, mosty 9.6, 40 book run of Fantastic Four (Fantastic Forty!!) from issue # 22 through issue #79. Over 75% of the run is in NM+ (9.6) CGC certified grade with the remaining 10 books all in 9.4. These books come from a very passionate and finnicky high grade collector who demanded perfect registration and superior page quality in his books, as well as Near Mint or better condition. Every book being offered is fresh and exceptionally glossy and most are tied as the highest graded CGC copy to date. Collectively, this is the best run of CGC certified Fantastic Fours ever offered for sale and come just one week before the major motion picture depicting the four heroes hits theatres everywhere on July 8th!! 13 books will be offered on both Friday and Saturday night with the remaining 14 going live on Sunday. You will not want to miss all this listing!

After the Fantastic Four madness is over, the greatest CGC certified collection of early 1960's DCs ever offered will begin being uploaded onto the new arrivals section starting on Monday night, July 4th. 100 books, all from the now legendary Burntboy Collection (also known as the Sid's Luncheonette Collection) in unbelievable CGC 8.0 grade and higher, will be listed for 10 straight nights, 10 books per night. Every book from this incredible original owner collection was purchased from the exact same magazine/comic wall in a small luncheonette in Orange, New Jersey by long time CGC forum member Harry Banks, who is now making a portion (the highest graded) of the DCs of his massive 1,000 book collection available for sale through

Every major DC title from 1962 through 1964 is represented, most in 9.0 and better condition (Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Mystery in Space, Brave and the Bold, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Flash, Sea Devils, Justice League of America, Atom, Metal Men, etc.). Many of the books are extremely rare in any grade at all, let alone CGC certified 8.0 and higher, and never come up for sale. Almost 1/3 of the group (30 books) are either the highest or second highest graded copies and a majority of the run have beautiful off-white to white page quality and superb color strike, a testament to Mr. Banks' foresight in carefully and neatly storing each book for the past 44 years. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany each book, identifying it as a part of the "Sid's Luncheonette Collection".

Undoubtedly, this group represents the greatest ammassment of early Silver Age DCs ever assembled or made available for purchase and all 100 books will be available to buy and bid as none will be pre-sold. Full color images of each book will be posted on the website for your perusal and enjoyment. Even if you are not a DC collector, you will not want to miss this amazing run as another like it will probably never become available again.
