Hi everyone,
I bought this book many years ago and it has 6 signatures inside and just wanted to see what everyone thinks about the autographs if they would pass VSP or not. In my opinion I think they good but what do you all think?

I don't know but say they did; would you want to pay for six signatures? It would be like $250 and then the grading/shipping/whatever else on top.

Yes I would be interested $155 in VSP and $72 for pressing and grading. Plus shipping back. So maybe $250 all together I think it would be worth it. Even if it’s just stayed in my collection. Deathlok is one of my favorites.

That's one of the best reasons there is for getting your books graded. That book is so cool! You've even got George Perez on that last page!

I would first take pictures of the pages with the autographs. Second, have it cleaned and pressed then graded. I doubt you're going to sell it. It is pretty cool.

This is good advice. It drives me crazy when I see slabbed books for sale with signatures on the inside yet the seller has no photos of the autographs. I simply will not bid on a book like this. How can you enjoy autographs that you have no image of? And it’s placing blind faith in the authentication service.

By the way, the signatures are authentic in my opinion.

I hate having more than one signature on a book. If just one doesn't verify, it messes up the whole thing. I personally would not be slabbing that book and trying to verify all the signatures.

Yep - I won't get a multitude of sigs verified for this reason; but moreso the cost.
I do, however, like to have both the writer and artist (2 signatures) on books; especially if they are legends of the comic industry.

And I love love love the fact the autographs are on the interior of the book for a 70's book (where I feel they belong). Take a sig picture if one wants to get graded and view the sigs

@Zombie_Head If I knew for sure all the signatures would pass VSP then I would get the book slabbed/VSP. The book would look amazing with the yellow label.

Absolutely. That book is too good not to preserve as much as possible. Two of the signatures - Roy Thomas & George Perez - look just like they do on books that I own and have had witnessed. I recognise all the others but I'm not familiar with how a witnessed/authenticated signature looks for them, unfortunately.
