Defenders #1 Blank Sketch Variant (2012) CGC 9.8 Signature Series comic book, which has been signed and sketched by Greg Kirkpatrick, who has inked a full cover sketch of the original Marvel Feature #1 cover which featured the first appearance of the Defenders (shown separately, but not included in this sale)!
This is original artwork by professional comic artist, not a pre-printed cover.
A rare opportunity to get a unique piece of commissioned artwork which is fully authenticated by CGC!
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 the 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 signature and the original artwork.
You can check the validity of this item and the signature and sketch by entering the 10 digit number on the label at the CGC web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare is just the scanner on the CGC case, which can cause reflection.
