Happy Birthday Bill Gaines

Collectibly MAD Deluxe Limited Edition Autographed by Bill Gaines and Grant Geissman
Today marks the birthday of William Gaines (1922-1992), publisher and co-editor of EC Comics and publisher of the satirical MAD Magazine. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this deluxe slipcased signed edition of Collectibly MAD.  To our knowledge this was the only book ever signed by the legendary Bill Gaines, who died shortly after this signing. The large book runs a hefty 320 pages and was published in a limited edition of 500 copies. The color section pictures particular rarities while black & white illustrations appear throughout the book. It contains everything you'd ever want to know about MAD collectibles by the one true expert in the field, Grant Geissman. Very Fine unread slipcased hardcover in shrinkwrap. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
