Hawkeye #1 First Print (2012) CGC 9.8 Signature Series comic book, from Marvel Comics, which has been signed by Jeremy Renner, the Hollywood actor who plays Hawkeye in the Avengers Movies!
As well as the CGC authentication, it comes complete with a photo Certificate Of Authenticity from Celebrity Authentics which can be authenticated on-line using their unique serial number. This serial number is also printed on the sealed CGC label.
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 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 web-site.
There are no cracks on the case. Any glare is just the scanner on the CGC case, which can cause reflection.
