GRADING OPTIONS FOR UNWITNESSED SIGNED COMICS
Reading Time: 1 minute
Every day I get emails and DM’s from comic collector’s all over the country asking me questions about comics and comic book grading. It’s with great responsibility that I take the time to answer each person’s question, and sometimes when I get asked the same question more than a few times, I’ll write a blog post or create a YouTube video to address the topic for anyone else who may be searching for the answer.
The #1 question I get asked these days by comic collector’s is about the options that are available for having an unwitnessed, signed comic graded.
While on the surface the answer can seem somewhat confusing, it’s actually pretty straight forward once you understand the choices you have available to you. There are two viable options for having a comic book graded that was signed without the presence of a representative from a third-party grading service to authenticate the signature. Which option you choose depends upon your intent once your signed comic is graded — do you want to keep the comic in your personal collection? or were you thinking about selling it and making a few bucks?
In my most recent guest post on ComicTom101’s blog, I break down both of the options to have an unwitnessed, signed comic graded by either CGC or CBCS. Head on over to check out the article in its entirety!
