Avengers #7 Blank Sketch Variant (2010) CGC 9.6 Signature Series signed comic book from Marvel Comics, which has been signed by Marvel Comics artist Steve Epting, who has also inked a Captain America sketch onto the cover.
This is original artwork commissioned from a professional Marvel Comics artist, not a pre-print cover!
It has been professionally graded by CGC, the largest independent comic grading company in the world, and slabbed in a sealed protective case.
The grade is guaranteed to be investment grade 9.6 (NEAR MINT+) and this is a yellow label CGC Signature Series, which means that an authorised CGC representative witnessed the signing and sketch and this also acts as a Certificate Of Authenticity.
As soon as the comic is signed, it is removed by a CGC authorised party and submitted straight to CGC for grading and encapsulation, guaranteeing the authenticity of the signature and the sketch.
You can check the validity of this item and the signature and the sketch by entering the 10 digit number on the label at the CGC web-site at www.cgccomics.com
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare is just the scanner on the CGC case, which can cause reflection.
