Captain America #27 First Print CGC 9.8 Signature Series comic book, which has been signed by Joe Quesada, artist and Marvel Editor In Chief at the time of publishing!
A great cover by Steve Epting features the Winter Soldier and the Falcon.
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 high investment grade 9.8 (NEAR MINT/MINT) and this is a yellow label CGC Signature Series, which means that an authorised CGC representative witnessed the signing 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.
You can check the validity of this item and the signature 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. The glare is just the scanner on the deep well CGC case, which causes reflection.
