Shwarzenegger signed certified Conan comic..8400

Collector Ambush_Bug private msg quote post Address this user
Say, has anyone else seen this? Apparently the new Marvel Conan comic is available, signed by
Shwarzenegger. I see that the rating is NM. I don't think I've seen that before. Is there a reason it doesn't have a number certification? I wonder of they would put a number on it, if it were re submitted.

I assume the "NM" simply means that CGC won't guarantee a specific grade (9.8, 9.6, etc.) except to guarantee that the comic will be at least a 9.4 (near mint).

At the bottom of the link:

"** Near mint means the book has been graded in a range between 9.2-9.8 as determined by CGC"

Yea, I guess I understand the premise, I just didn't know they did "vague" grading like that. Can't say I'm crazy about it. It's a pain if you want a number rating. The cost of resubmitting and waiting doesn't feel worth it.
I don't know why I'm complaining though. Crom never listens anyways!

The slab won't have NM on it - they just photoshopped that on to show the book will have a numerical grade of 9.2 or 9.4 or up when you get it.

Usually you see places advertise a promised 9.8 slab - but I suppose that means signing a lot of extra books to make sure they have the numbers to satisfy the order. Arnold's probably only willing to sign a certain number, and they know they won't all make the 9.8 cut.

Aaaah, I see. That makes much more sense.

Thanks for making that clear.

I saw this yesterday, it's tempting...but $425 is a little steep for my taste, I mean that's like $800 Canadian right.

@kaptainmyke - “Old Man Conan” bends his covers over, so if he reads any comics before he signs them, they all will be mid-grade at best. What a Barbarian!

He's probably folding over some modern variant drek. No harm, no foul. He also recommends starting your day with 200 sit ups.

I'm getting a 9.8 admittedly... I have wanted an Arnold signed book for a long time, this is perfect for this issue and the photo variant. Better than signing a 70s book. My favorite franchise is the Terminator movies but there's no suitable books for him to sign that would yield a 9.8.

I bet it takes him ages to sign 500 covers with that long name, too. This will probably take him weeks at his home to do over the course of time in between all those situps and pushups.

Needs a qualified grade with note on slab... "Signed and crushed by Arnold Schwarzenegger"
