Hi Guys!

Just wanted to say how awesome of a job by everyone in cracking this case wide open! Been creeping since the beginning, but finally registered and able to post! Way to gather plenty of evidence! I love the side by side comparisons! It definitely helps tremendously! I really enjoy the theories as well! This has been both very informative and entertaining! Great write-up, KaptainMyke!

Shrewbeer, showing those 3 side by side really helps show the real one vs the fakes! Nice!

I bought one off Ebay (which now I'm convinced it fake)on 10/14 and sent it off to CGC as soon as I got it on 10/16. CGC got it on 10/18. I did FastTrack Modern. I'm hoping to hear back two weeks from now, but who knows!

Before I bought it, I asked the seller and he said :

" actually don't know anything about fakes or bootlegs. I have had my blurays for a while now so the comic should be real. I haven't seen any that look different then my comic. I will package it secure and it should go out by tomorrow thanks."

He wasn't selling any other ones and seems like a legit good seller, 100% with 755. Mostly selling toys and comic books, vintage stuff, so my radar was somewhat muted.

In hindsight, I should have asked for more pictures and pictures of the bluray packaging as well.

Here are the front and back of the one I sent off:




I got 180 days with PayPal buyer protection, so I figure I'd wait for CGC to get back to me. Will definitely keep you guys posted!

@Garnett21k lots of people got screwed in this deal, and they are STILL being sold. 99% of the sellers have no idea they are selling fakes though, so it's tough to blame anyone.

Your Morty looks to have black hair, and double staples. It will be interesting to see what CGC does with your book, as they may not be creeping this forum 😁

I know! It's crazy! I honestly don't think the guy who sold it to me had any idea that it was even possible.

2 staples! Yes! Sadness! haha I wish I had taken photos when it arrived. I was in a rush to send it off. The pics were from his original listing which were consistent with what arrived.

Definitely interested in what CGC has to say. I tell you what, unless they are in direct contact with Dan and Justin, maybe they ought to creep in this forum!

I'm still in search of a single staple copy if anyone happens to have an extra one. I bought a DVD off Ebay a while ago but the version that came with it was a 2 staple version.

I don't think you used anything I posted but please feel free to use/add my timeline to your write up if you think it would add additional context/information to what you've already put together.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if CGC/CBCS has already sent out graded version of the 2 staple comic before all these issues with fakes started. It will be very interesting to see if anyone who sent out the comics ASAP get back graded 2 staples.

So... CGC started this entire rabbit hole and now they aren't even sure how to proceed forward and grade these comic books?

UPDATE:

In light of the info that CGC is waiting on Adult Swim and Warner Bros. I called to ask if they could just return mine to me so I can file a claim with Ebay/Paypal/Seller. They said they would!

They said they could return it. All they need was an email stating that you want it returned unencapsulated. I emailed this guy Matt at CGC(I guess they wanted it documented with an email)

Basically I'm on the hook for the shipping, but will get re-imbursed for the grading cost! I originally have it coming back USPS, but asked if it's at all possible to send it UPS since it's cheaper. He said he forwarded the request to the shipping dept. We will see!

They are likely just dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s. I doubt either company wants to make an error with this book knowing they are going to be graded by both companies shortly...or I hope so anyway.

I’m glad they reached out to Warner Brothers. Hopefully the response completely eliminates any reason of doubt which ones are real and which ones are fake. Yet at this point I’m not sure we need to hear it from them.

Thanks again Kap for the article, and to everyone else who has helped out!

So was this whole thing solved? Is it safe to return and post again and not receive 10+ emails an hour of replies because I forgot to unsubscribe from the thread?!

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this just yet, but currently we are not encapsulating "The Good Morty" book.

There are to many variables to account for with to little information surrounding the book currently.

Yes. Look at pawn shops, local used bookstores, etc. Unsuspecting ebay sellers who do not sell just movies on their ebay stores.

But - Now you (CBCS) know the variables, Jake. It's easy now when comparing to others side by side. Now that we all know what to look for , it's now easy to spot the fakes in photos on ebay or facebook. (For me anyway)

According to tracking, you guys got the two copies today. Fingers crossed Steve finds evidence that is the definitive enough for CBCS!

Great job kaptain, shrewbeer, scorpion, and the multples of other contributing Columbos that solved this case. You or someone should PM Steve your link. I believe it is the current best reference that ties everything together. 👑🏆🍺

Didn't Ricketts say these were gradable in the other Good Morty thread? I remember him saying something along the lines of how cool one of the 250 signed editions would look with a verified label?

Maybe that was before Columbrah and Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys came on the scene.
