Item Description

 Item Description
This listing  from a smoke free home  is for a 3X signed CGC 9.8 (NM/MT) Signature Series copy of the desirable NEWSSTAND version of Wolverine Limited Series #1, Marvel Comics, 9/1982.  A KEY issue featuring the 1st solo Wolverine comic and a cameo of Yukio, this copy has been TRIPLE-SIGNED under the Signature Series by FRANK MILLER, CHRIS CLAREMONT, and the late great legendary STAN LEE!  The signatures are all in matching silver sharpie and came out great — please scroll through the attached pictures, I've included close-ups. Among the countless gifts Stan Lee gave to collectors was how he embraced the CGC Signature Series, creating a unique class of books for us where the Yellow Label signifies his autograph of the book was witnessed by CGC before being immediately taken into their possession and encapsulated, for permanent signature authentication... and then with Yellow Label copies counted distinctly among each census entry.  As of this date the CGC census shows a grand total of just 737 NM/MT grade Signature Series copies of this issue number!  The census does not indicate who signed each of those copies but Stan Lee cannot have signed any MORE than ALL of them.  And in actuality, those 737 copies are further divided into DIRECT EDITION vs. NEWSSTAND copies, where the newsstand type are notorious for being poorly handled and thus had low odds of surviving in 9.8 NM/MT grade — ahead of posting this listing I searched eBay on the search phrase "wolverine limited series #1 cgc 9.8" and counted only ONE of the 9.8 copies in the results was the newsstand type!  Meanwhile, over at competitor CBCS, they do differentiate the types and they recently released their census: it shows 83 direct editions in 9.8 versus just 2 newsstand copies in 9.8 for this issue, a ratio of 2.4% newsstand in grade...  We can't know for sure what the ratio is among CGC 9.8 copies because they fail to tell them apart (CGC lumps both types together on census) but if it is anywhere close to the ratio we see in the CBCS data then the number of CGC SS NM/MT NEWSSTAND copies signed by Stan Lee of this issue is a crazy-low number! Here's an opportunity for you to own a 3X-SIGNED, FRANK MILLER + CHRIS CLAREMONT + STAN LEE CGC Signature Series NEWSSTAND 9.8 copy of Wolverine Limited Series #1!  Offered at NO RESERVE AUCTION!  BID NOW!!
 Shipping Information
USA: Free Media Mail shipping, or $9 Priority Mail (recommended). For international buyers, I have checked the box to participate in eBay's Global Shipping Program.  I have 15 years of experience selling comics on eBay and always take great care to package rare comics well for shipment — my assumption when packing, is that the box will be dropped on its corner by a postal worker, and therefore needs to be protected accordingly.  I am a collector like you and I've received my fair (unfair) share of cracked cases.  So rest assured, great care will be taken to see that the comic will reach you safely; some of my positive eBay feedback responses include these comments: "The Best Packing I've Ever Seen", "Fast international shipping, bomb-proof packaging", "Lightning fast! Book very well packed, could have survived nuclear attack!"
