Description

Title: Black Cat Mystery
Issue: 31
Page: Cover
Artist: Al Avison

Year Printed: 1951


I first saw the printed version of this comic on the CGC boards and instantly loved it. I started collecting any decent copy I could find. So when I saw the original while browsing through the latest Heritage catalog I was amazed. Here is a cover I stumbled upon while browsing these boards and then stumbled upon the auction in a catalog I am lucky to get since I have only won one auction from Heritage and it was for under $175.

Golden Age art pricing is something I know NOTHING about, so my first thought is to PM some of the CGC board members that I have seen discussing it, and who's opinions I have come to trust. All of them responded and I'd like to thank them very much for thier informative and helpful responses.

So I bid my max on the auction (read that "as much as I could scrape together" which was less than some of the estimates I recieved via PM) and I didn't win. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I get an email saying the cover is still available for the winning bid which was one increment above mine. I jumped at it (and also thought, if I had only bid less (c: ).
