Red vs Blue label: exclusively signed comics3893

Collector Darkga private msg quote post Address this user
So I just picked up a copy of Crypt of Dawn #1 variant cover. This cover was limited to 5,000 copies and ONLY came signed. There are no unsigned copies of it distributed. Now I know of course I can submit it for a red label, but I would rather just get a blue label (and save $25) since the signature is obviously legit. My main concern though is CBCS giving it a grade hit for "writing on the inside cover." I just don't think a book should get a grade hit for something it came with from the publisher.

I think this has implications for other books like this as well. What are your thoughts?

I would go for the red label, personally. A definite conundrum if you don't want to spend the money or if the sig isn't on the verified list.

I was thinking the red label would look cool with this cover, but for the extra $25 is not worth it to me. This is a fairly inexpensive book too.

There was something similar to this with the cgc and a Walking Dead Lucille variant. All copies where supposed to be signed copies with no unsigned copies exisiting. It didn't take long until, lo and behold, unsigned copies were showing up on eBay.

So, the odds of CBCS giving this book a blue label with a pass on the signature are slim to none.

If you dont do VSP, it will probably be treated as a defect, i.e. writing on the cover. I'd vote for either red label or keeping it raw but not blue

Call the powers at CBCS or private message one of them here to see what their take is on something like this. I'm sure they'd be more than helpful and glad to answer your question/concern.

Go red label all the way. Will look cooler and no worries about getting knocked for a blemish. If the 25 extra bucks is going to break you, keep the book raw and display it in one of the BCW showcases. Love the cover BTW.

Seems like this book was pretty much the same deal. You would get a grade drop

LOL, no I just bought it. They are inexpensive though, about $20 to $30 raw.

Red label it is then... I'll put it deep in the to-be-slabbed box though. Thanks!
