Conan #1 CGC 9.6 Signature Series comic book from Dark Horse Comics, which has been signed by series artist Card Nord and cover artist Joseph Michael Linsner. Both artists have also each uniquely added a head sketch of our favourite Cimmerian to the 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 signings and sketching 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 and sketches.
You can check the validity of this item and the signatures and sketches by entering the 10 digit number on the label at the CGC web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare in the image is just the scanner on the CGC case, which can cause reflection.
