Civil War #1 Michael Turner Retailer Incentive Sketch Variant CGC 9.8 Signature Series comic book, from Marvel Comics, which has been signed by Stan Lee, the late Marvel Comics Legend & creator of the Avengers, late cover artist Michael Turner and series artist Steve McNiven!
Retailers had order 75 copies of the standard issue back in 2006 to get just one of these Civil War #1 Retailer Incentive Sketch Variant comics!
A similar example, signed by just Stan Lee and Michael Turner sold for $1,000 in December 2020.
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 signings 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 signatures.
You can check the validity of this item and the signatures 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.
