Does Verified Artist Signature raise value?3321

Hi, everyone. Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on if they feel that getting an artists verified signature raises the value of a comic, or if it can hurt it.

Depends on who it is and which comic. Could go both ways.

@Relaxin89 just gives me peace of mind. I wouldn't expect a price bump. Even witnessed signatures can be shady.

That's what I figured. I just found out about Trinity Comics, and the amazing service they provide. Thinking of sending them some comics to get signed for my personal collection but I worry about hurting their value. All newer comics

Newer comics I would not worry about. It is key older books that might be better left alone than signed.

@Relaxin89 I used trinity before, A+ service. I only get 8.5 or less signed by the artist, if the artist/writer had something to do with that comic. Meaning no Stan Lee sigs on a Wolverine comic.

I don't have anything 9.0 or above signed I feel like it's ruining the near mintness.

I guess with all the modern variants having a 9.8 signed would make it sell for more. I'm talking more about golden/silver/bronze age comics.

@KingNampa gotcha. That makes sense. Thanks for the Trinity Comics recommendation. I plan on sending them some new venom variants to get signed by gabriele dell'otto and francesco mattina at upcoming signings. I also have an Amazing Spider-Man #569 CGC at 9.0 I thought about having signed by Adi Granov, again all for my personal collection.

You can do a search of completed eBay sales of signed books by whatever artist you have in mind. Would give you an idea of what their signed books are going for.
