The Thing #1 (1983) First Print CGC 9.4 Signature Series comic book, which has been signed by Stan Lee, the Marvel Comics legend and co-creator of the Fantastic Four back in 1961!
John Byrne story and cover, Ron Wilson and Joe Sinnott artwork.
The signature is to the bottom right corner near the Thing's foot. It is slightly feint and does not show up too well due to the black ink on the cover and the outer CGC case. Image 3 shows the signature with us tracing red ink over it to show the signature location.
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 very high grade 9.4 (NEAR MINT) or 94% perfect, 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 this item and the signature by entering the 10 digit code on the yellow label at the CGC web-site.
There are no cracks on the case.
