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 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.
