If one were thinking about getting into collecting a pedigree, what are some of the more affordable pedigrees out there to collect?

Great question. I'd also be interested in this.

Easy, Pedigree Small Adult Dog. Only $5 a bag! 😁

That's a hard question to answer as pedigree books are typically some of the best examples of a particular issue. Although, almost every pedigree has a few duds for one reason or another. A couple of exceptions would be the Curators and Pacific Coasts.

I would think the Big Apple books might be the most affordable Silver Age pedigree on the whole due to page quality.

I'll go ahead and put this one in the Out Of Context Member Quotes thread.

You have to expand on the question into the various periods.

Golden age, Silver, etc.

Are there any Pedigrees that include Bronze Age books?

There are several pedigrees with bronze age books. I also think there are some copper (Mile High II?)

You might want to look into the Rocky Mountain or Mass. pedigrees first. Or the Winnepeg pedigree books. I think they will satisfy your itch.

Affordable? I would say the Savannah pedigree. The reason is many display cream-off white pages. If you want to step up a little in page quality then Winnipeg or Western Penn.

I would kind of stay way from the Savannah's the page quality is mostly cream to off white in general. Best bang for your buck Western Penn's, Mass Copies , Twin Cities and Suscha News copies. When you start to get to Curators, Oakland's , Pacific Coast, Green River and White Mountains I think you start to hit a little more of a premium.

Savannahs would fit into that category as well

CBCS recognized the Pennsylvania Dutch collection as a pedigree recently. You can find those books (both raw and CBCS slabbed) for sale on ComicConnect.

Did they really? I have a Penn. Dutch Ms. Marvel. How would they go about verifying its authenticity? Mine came with a little notation on the invoice.

I ask because the only option in the pull down menu when submitting a book is the "Pennsylvania Copy," which I assume is the actual Steve Geppi Pennsylvania Pedigree. Would I just put in under the variant?
