X-Men #1 Blank Sketch Variant CGC 9.8 Signature Series comic book, which has been signed by artist Brandon Badeaux, who has sketched and a great head sketch of Darth Vader!! This is not a pre-printed cover, but original artwork by a top artist who has worked for Dark Horse Comics (Star Wars Tales, Star Wars: Rebellion), DC Comics (Gears Of War, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman) and various Marvel Comics titles.
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 sketching 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 and the original artwork.
You can check the validity of this item and the signature and the original artwork 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.
