GRAIL CALL! Veng of Vampirella #1 Royal Blue4192

Collector Darkga private msg quote post Address this user
My precious... After stalking eBay (and the internet in general) for what seems like forever I have finally found you! The buyer was cool enough to overnight it, it's in USPS possession, and it will be in my hands tomorrow morning. I could not wait that long to post about it though because I am just that excited! This one is going to definitely be a CBCS 2-Day Modern submission.

For those of you who don't know the story behind the book: http://www.recalledcomics.com/VengeanceOfVampirella1Blue.php

Here are the auction pictures!
Vengeance of Vampirella #1 Royal Blue

OUTSTANDING!

Really, fantastic. Well worth the price paid. I sold a complete Royal Blue set, only missing #0, about 4-5 years ago, for about that price, and have regretted it ever since.

Such a tough book.

I love 2-Day Modern! She is shipping back to me today, but I got the image option so that I could have the picture early.

I will say that I wish they put "Royal Blue Edition" on the label since that's the official name of the variant. Instead they wrote "Second Printing" and "Blue foil wraparound cover."

Did it get the grade you expected?

So it had a bend on the back cover that was hard to photo. The cardstock cover probably can't be pressed, so as-is I expected a 9.0 or 9.2.

Nothing to sneeze at with a book that rare.

i have all the ver, Red foil (first print), aquamarine (second print) and gold foil (limited to 500 copies)but that one, i remember seeing this back in the day at my Local comics shop in NY, they had a stack of them,(this may have been a printer error) as i remember there where a few, and my have been returned for a correct ver. but i did not pick it up, as they where 2nd prints of the book like the aquamarine.

No doubt, and that Dave Stevens cover is also one of my favorites.

Your book is labeled incorrectly. Give us a call next week and we will get it fixed for you.

Thanks Steve! I actually have three other mislabeled books that I had been waiting to send in as well, but I did not know if I should create a re-holder invoice for them or just include a note with copies of the emails from customer service. What's the best course of action? Thanks!

I don't know. Call the office and ask how they want you to do it. The Vampi book is definitely labeled with the incorrect variant and needs to be fixed. You'll have to ask about the other books.
