The Pacific Coast pedigree is arguably the single greatest Silver Age collection ever found. The breadth of the collection spans from 1962 into the 1970’s, and include near full runs from that time period of Marvel, DC, Gold Key, Warren Magazines and Mad ...

Oakland pedigree

Posted by Stephen Solomon on Friday, November 19, 2010, In : Pedigree Collections 

It seems to me that given the dates this collection covers, that there would be many collections that could equally qualify as a pedigree collection. 1967 might be a tougher year to find high grade material, but certainly starting in 1968 and onward, there are plenty of high grade books to be found. The collection does consist of 4,000+ books, so maybe its high quantity gives it a l...

Green River pedigree

Posted by Stephen Solomon on Thursday, November 18, 2010, In : Pedigree Collections 

One of my personal favorites is the "Green River" pedigree. The books are great and the story behind the collection is definitely "different". And if you're a "date stamp" kind of person, this collection is for you.


Green River

The Green River pedigree is an interesting pedigree through and through. It contains mostly Marvel and DC books from the early 1960’s to the late 1960’...

Diamond Run pedigree (collection)

Posted by Stephen Solomon on Tuesday, November 16, 2010, In : Pedigree Collections 

The "Diamond Run" collection was revoked of its pedigree status by CGC in 2007. That alone makes this collection interesting.

Diamond Run

 The Diamond Run pedigree is one of the more unknown collections around. What is known is that it is a high grade collection of Golden and Silver Age Marvel and DC books. The collection spans from at least the late-1930's (as a Detective Comics ...

Circle 8 pedigree

Posted by Stephen Solomon on Tuesday, November 16, 2010, In : Pedigree Collections 

The second installment in my information regarding comic book pedigree collections concerns the "Circle 8" pedigree collection. Some people don't consider this to be a true "pedigree" collection; some view it as a warehouse find. Personally, I do consider it a warehouse find as well, but do agree that CGC should consider it as a pedigree collection.


Circle 8

 The Circle 8 collection is an extremely large collection that spans the dates of 1950 to 1975. The collection numbers approximately ...

River City pedigree

Posted by Stephen Solomon on Monday, November 15, 2010, In : Pedigree Collections 

A few years ago I began what was essentially a report on comic book pedigrees. Most of the information is collected "second-hand", which is why it is a "report". Here is the first installment; the River City pedigree!

Below is a Marines in Action #12 CGC 9.0 from the River City pedigree; check out the Devil Dog in the background slugging the Red right in the face! YEAH! "Classic l...
