CGC 9.8 (NM/MT)
Signature Series Signed by
Up for auction is a copy of Spider-Man #1 signed by writer and artist Todd McFarlane and graded 9.8 (NM/MT) by CGC under its Signature Series label. The CGC holder is in great shape with no cracks.
For those of you unfamiliar with Signature Series, the Signature Series label takes the place of a certificate of authenticity, and with it you know that a certified CGC witness saw the comic being autographed by the person indicated, and immediately afterwards took the comic into his possession so that there is no doubt the autograph is authentic. In the case of multiple autographs signed at different times, a CGC witness will only release the signed comic at the time it is to be autographed by another person, and then takes it right back.
Note that the picture below is of the actual comic for sale and not just some "stock" photo.
Payment may be made only by PayPal.
To ensure that the winning bidder receives this comic and the CGC holder in the same condition as it was sent, it will be shipped well-protected in a box. Insured media mail shipping is available for $5, and insured priority mail shipping is available for $11. For international buyers, insured Priority Mail International shipping is available for $45, and insured Priority Mail International Express shipping is available for $57.50. Note that the international rates are designed to accommodate shipping to all countries. Certain countries may be less, and if so, I will invoice the lower amount. Shipping rates to specific countries are available upon request.
Please note that more than actual shipping goes into my shipping charge, which also includes the cost of shipping supplies and insurance. Also note that insurance is obtained through a third-party insurer and not the post office and thus will not be reflected on the postage affixed to the package.
NOTE ON MEDIA MAIL SHIPPING: I offer media mail shipping in order to provide the lowest shipping cost possible. According to the Official Overstreet Comic Book Grading Guide (2nd edition), "most ads in comic books have expired, and they may not be excluded from the media mail classification." Nevertheless, many postal employees believe that comic books do not qualify for media mail. Packages sent via media mail are subject to inspection, and if it is determined that the package does not qualify, it will be charged at the higher parcel post rate. If that is the case, the package will often arrive with "postage due." BY SELECTING MEDIA MAIL AS THE SHIPPING OPTION, THE BUYER AGREES TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ADDITIONAL POSTAGE IF THE PACKAGE IS DETERMINED NOT TO QUALIFY FOR MEDIA MAIL.
I will gladly combine shipping for any of my auctions won within a seven day period.
