*COLE SCHAVE EARLY SILVER AGE MARVEL COLLECTION OUT OF GREEN BAY, WI:

This is a fabulous collection of ultra-high-grade early Silver Age Marvels from the private collection of Cole Schave, a noted collector out of Green Bay, WI, that Pedigree Comics’ CEO and President, Doug Schmell, purchased in July for $600,000. Known to many dealers across the country, Mr. Schave is a very picky high-grade CGC buyer who does not buy a book solely for the grade on the label. He focuses on superior page quality, registration and eye appeal and would routinely pass on many books he needed for his collection if they did not meet his strict criteria. Therefore, all the books in his collection have superior page quality (white or off-white to white with only a couple with off-white), structure, centering and presentation, with no date stamps, writings, etc.

The collection consists of 68 early Silver Age Marvels plus six later Silver Age / Bronze Age keys. Almost every book in the collection is a CGC-graded 9.4 or higher, with only a few in CGC 9.2 and three in CGC 9.0. Many of the books are in CGC 9.6 and CGC 9.8 condition and represent the highest-certified copy. The most popular Silver Age Marvel titles are represented (Amazing Spider-Man; Avengers; Fantastic Four; Journey Into Mystery and Tales of Suspense) with near-complete runs of the early issues. Here are just some of the highlights from the collection:

*HIGHEST CGC-CERTIFIED 9.8 SILVER AGE DCs FROM THE SEATTLE DRUG STORE COLLECTION: This last addition to the auction is incredible. It is a consignment of over 20 9.8 Silver Age DCs from the original-owner Seattle Drug Store Collection that came to market last year. These books are stunning and unread and most are the SINGLE HIGHEST CGC-CERTIFIED EXAMPLE! The Seattle Drugstore Collection consists of a series of Marvel and DC comics from 1966 to 1971 in unread, near perfect condition! During those years there was a drugstore employee & collector who was only interested in comic book covers & not the stories. He set aside one of each issue before they were put up for sale on the newsstand. Always being careful to remove an issue from the middle of the stack (for the best condition), these books remained untouched until they were graded by CGC this year in 2012. All the comic books from this collection are in exceptional condition with perfect or near-perfect gloss, pages and covers just like they were the day of release. Here are the highlights:

Action Comics #365 CGC 9.8
Action Comics #367 CGC 9.8
