Grading Help Needed

Preacher:personalized signature4820

Collector Daddygetalong private msg quote post Address this user
I have a #1 Preacher comic book personalized and signed by the wrighter Garth Ennis. How would that effect the grade and value being personalized? It looks like a 9.2 and has not been graded by any one.

Won’t affect grading if you VSP it. In terms of value is a different matter - probably reduces it a bit.

In my experience with autograph collecting a personalized sig has a significantly reduced resale value, while I have far less experience with graded comics I would agree with what poka said about it not affecting the actual grade at all.

@Daddygetalong I feel your pain, brother. I put the book down. Said nice to meet you. Meant to say "please just sign your name on cover". Got distracted for one second... and voila!
Bought this off rack for $2.95 NM. Luckily I found another at a garage sale for $1 in NM WITHOUT his signature and will not be getting his signature again.

I've had artists personalize things that I don't plan on getting graded or have no real value. I really love Jordie Belaire's coloring so I have her sign and personalize splash pages. No value but they look great when I can get a few of them together to frame!

That sig in the OP photo does not look like a real Garth Ennis signature.

I just had Garth in my store for a signing, and he did indeed change his signature. I had some older books signed by him and asked - straight from the horse's mouth, this is what his signature used to look like, and over the last 20 years it sort of evolved/ devolved into what it is now. Your signature looks legit to me!

I picked mine up at a flea market below cover price and already signed. Not sure what the value may be. I would like to sell it. I may turn it in to be graded and have the signature verified. You all have been very inciteful. Thank you very much for all the information.
