Spider-Man #1 Blue Lizard misprint3941

Collector cbj102 private msg quote post Address this user
Does CBCS make a note on the label Identifying the blue lizard error?

My apologies if this has been asked before.

The color misprint only happens with the black color versions. There is another page where the lizard is like coming out of the sewer and he's blue there instead of green.

(Sorry not sure how to just show the pics instead of the link)

It's a little hard to see but that's the best I can do for now.

This error is supposed to be rare and people charge more $$$ for a copy.

Obliviously I would want this noted on the label.

@cbj102 when you do your invoice put "blue lizard error variant" into the variant field. That will draw their attention to it. Might also be a good idea to physically write "varify for label 'blue lizard error'." If they have seen it before they will note it, if it's the first time for them they will decide what to note when they grade it.

I am always on the hunt for this book (but not at the going cost) here is a comparison image that shows the difference between the normal color and the the error




Not my image nor it is the best quality but you get the idea.

I have only found one graded by CGC and it was labeled "manufacture error"

I am very curious what CBCS would put on the label as well.

Thanks for the assist bythegram.

@Darthlego - That's all fine and good but I will be sure then not to have them slab unless the color error/difference is noted - it makes a BIG difference.

I have a silver and silver poly graded by CBCS. I never even thought to check the panel before submitting. Nothing is noted on either label so I'm guessing mine were regular.

thank you for pointing this out! like most here, I never knew about it...have to dig through the stacks I have to check...do you know if its just the regular silver edition, or would the bagged edition possibly have the error too? thanks!
