@martymann the thanks actually goes to @sagii for starting a thread asking for a pinned pedigree thread and to all the forum members that spoke up on that thread.

Ken Neily was stationed in Germany in 1968' and bought books while there and shipped them home so he could continue his collection.
I just learned this last week from a family member.
That was the only way to get them approved by CGC.

Interesting thread. I read all the posts and there are some neat books posted. Thanks for those pics!

I still don't understand the appeal of the pedigree designation. At the end of the day, if pedigrees fetch a premium, they are even less appealing because I would rather have the best copy that I can afford of whatever book I am trying to collect rather than a crappier copy that came from some collection of this or that person. If Joe Blow had a really small personal collection but he kept his surfer books pristine, I want to buy those rather than a book that has the same price tag because it has a golden label and happened to have been stuffed in a dank box in the "Purple Gully Collection". Maybe it matters more for really high-end collectors? But even then, these collections are now broken up as people are just collecting one or two books from that collection so the value of the collection is gone.

Can someone liken these to something that is collectible elsewhere for indirect reasons? When I think of money, it is condition, uncirculated bills or errors that typically drive up the price and none of those seem similar. This isn't like an item from a movie set because those are one-off props not copies of regularly circulated copies of publications. Typically, these aren't even from a "celebrity" connected to the book/character. Even if a celebrity also collected comics and happened to own a book I wanted I can't see paying a premium for those books. Let's say Dolly Parton collected Silver Surfer books and I could afford a 9.4 or an 8.5 from the "Dolly Parton Collection" my wallet (which speaks directly to me) would say "Dolly collected crappy books, buy the 9.4 that was owned by random people".

I am hoping to be sold on these because it would give me an excuse to collect something else

@Silverado In many cases, pedigree books are the highest graded copies in existence. I think the high prices for pedigree books that aren't the highest grades in existence is often due to their proximity to those books. And you are also paying for the story.

Unless it's a golden age pedigree book like a Church, Gaines, etc. there are golden age pedigrees that don't command more money then a non pedigree book in the same grade.

Why I have so many silver age pedigrees.
Because they are worth the same price as a non pedigree book in the same grade so I bought the pedigree book. It's like a bonus for free.
And I do enjoy reading about the history of pedigree books and how they were collected and kept.




White mountain copy in 9.4 values at the same price as any other 9.4.

Thanks for the thread. I had never heard of the Cookeville Pedigree and was shocked to find out it was named that after my hometown - little Cookeville, TN.

New Hampshire books were given pedigree status after they sold into the market so you can find them out in the wild. I found this one in the Metropolis Comics inventory.
