Fantastic Four #72 First Print (1968) CGC 6.5 AP comic book, from Marvel Comics, which has been signed by Stan Lee, Marvel Comics legend and the co-creator of the Fantastic Four back in 1961!!
This key issue features a cover by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott with the Silver Surfer!
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 mid to high grade 6.5 (FINE+) and CGC have stated this as a restored apparent grade as they found a small amount of colour touch on the cover.
The comic was signed by Stan Lee before grading and this was not witnessed by a CGC authorised party, so it does not qualify as a yellow label CGC Signature Series. We have 20 years experience of handling signed comics and we have carefully checked the signature against the hundreds of Stan Lee signed items that we have. We are satisfied that it is genuine and we will unconditionally guarantee it provided the comic remains in the CGC case. You can see many other examples of Stan's signature in our inventory on-line to compare for yourself.
A CGC 6.0 Signature Series book sold for $375 (£288) in August 2018 and an unsigned CGC 6.5 sold for over $130 (£100) recently.
You can check the grading by entering the 10 digit serial number on the yellow label at the CGC comics web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare is just the reflection of the scanner on the CGC casing.
