Fallen Son Death of Captain America #3 CGC 9.6 Signature Series signed comic book, from Marvel Comics, which is signed by John Romita Jr., the cover artist!
It has been professionally graded by CGC, the largest independent comic grading company in the world, and slabbed in a sealed tamper proof protective case.
The comic 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. CGC remove the comic as soon as it is signed and ship it to their facility in Florida, to ensure that the signature is authentic.
You can check the validity of the item and the signature by entering the 10 digit serial number on the yellow label into the CGC web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. The glare is just the reflection of the scanner on the CGC outer casing.
