Avengers #1 Party Gatefold Variant CGC 9.6 Signature Series comic book, from Marvel Comics, which has been signed by Stan "The Man" Lee, Marvel Comics legend and creator of the Avengers back in 1963!!
This extremely hard to find John Romita Jr Gatefold Party Variant was only available to retailers that held an Avengers Launch Party and it was limited to 1 per participating retailer.
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 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 comics web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare is just reflection of the scanner on the CGC plastic outer case.
