Pedigree Comics’ April Grand Auction will end on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, on the Pedigree Comics website. This auction features CGC-certified books from the pedigreed Winnipeg Collection featuring high grade books from the 1970s to early ‘90s. The first lot (Amazing Adventures #2 9.4 Winnipeg) ends on April 10 at 8:59 PM ET and the last lot (X-Men Annual #12 9.4 Winnipeg) ends at 11:30 PM.

There is no buyer’s premium on any of the lots in the auction and every book is listed with no reserve. Every book is CGC-graded and the minimum bid is only $25 for this auction. Over 360 lots are open for bids in the Auction Listing on Pedigree’s website.

This latest batch of Winnipeg Marvel books was recently graded by CGC and represents many of the duplicate issues that Schmell has stored over the past 25-plus years. There are many different titles and issues to choose from including Amazing Adventures, X-Men Annual, Captain America, Conan the Barbarian, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Four, Invaders, Iron Man, Marvel Team-Up, Thor, and Uncanny X-Men.

The featured group is the Daredevil run from the 1970s and ‘80s. There are over 100 high grade Daredevil issues from #45 to #315, plus a couple of Annuals with many in 9.8.

There are over 300 more Bronze Age Marvel Winnipeg books currently at CGC awaiting certification and this group will be finalized and featured in Pedigree’s upcoming May Grand Auction.

More details on the auction will be shared on Pedigree’s website under the “Latest News” section and on Scoop over the next week.

Pedigree is seeking high grade CGC or CBCS-certified comic books to sell or consign. Those interested can go to the site and read the following for all consignment information or contact them directly at (561) 422-1120 or (561) 596-9111 or by email at DougSchmell@pedigreecomics.com

Pedigree is now accepting consignments for their May CGC Bronze Age Winnipeg Marvel Auction. Consigning books sooner means that they will receive more exposure. Pedigree promotes and advertises each auction and sends periodic newsletters to all of their over 25,000 customers announcing the auction items. Pedigree also offers cash advances for quality consignments so check the site for consignment instructions and get your books in now.

There are three ways to consign your books to the May CGC Bronze Age Winnipeg Marvel Auction. The only criteria is that the books must be CGC or CBCS-graded and worth no less than $25. If you have high grade raw books that you want to have certified and sold in the February auction or a future Grand Auction, you can utilize Pedigree’s Raw To Riches Consignment Service, in which they will have your books certified under their account and will lay out all the CGC or CBCS-grading fees in advance for you (refer to the website and their Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide advertisement for all the details of the Raw to Riches Consignment Service).

To consign you can ship your books directly to their offices in Wellington, Florida. They will inventory, scan, and upload each book into the Grand Auction listing. The books will be listed under your personal account and you will receive email notification at the conclusion of the auction with a list of every consigned book that sold along with the winning bid made.

Email the scans of the books you wish to consign directly to them at DougSchmell@pedigreecomics.com. They will format and upload each scan onto their server and then put each book into the Grand Auction listing. Use a .jpeg format with the resolution set at 72 and the pixel width at 1200 for optimum clarity. If you do not have a scanner you can use a digital camera.

You can upload your own scans, item information, book or art descriptions and reserve amounts, if any, by utilizing their Automated Consignment System. Just register onto the site and login, click the “Customer Page” tab under “Your Account” and then click “Consignments” (under the “Auctions” heading). You will then be able to enter the Pedigree Comics Consignment Management System and list your own CGC- or CBCS-certified books. Pedigree will receive an email once you have uploaded the scan and book information for each individual item into the system and they will then review the information imparted for accuracy. The items will then be added to the Grand Auction listing to be bid on.
