Here are four books I just got back from CGC that originally were all graded the same. Man of Steel Trade Paperback #nn Raffle Edition. They had to go back to CGC due to Mechanical Error . Here is my submission form explaining the difference and it was accompanied by copies of the letters and the following images . 20210401_152113.thumb.jpg.56d14b3ebbcf99ee60f9a497ca655231.jpg

   These originally were given away by Raffle to customers who filled out survey cards found  in Superman #1, The Adventures of Superman # 424 , and Action Comics #584  and sent them in . The winners that were selected as well as  their local shop each received a copy. They drew 1000 from each of the 3 contests.  So 3000 of each were produced.  ( 3,000 store and 3000 customer) 269889093_20191023_212631(1).thumb.jpg.c41156e28c97404a25ee54a214a1f883.jpg1307677720_20191023_211400(1).thumb.jpg.225fce9f4a3e50a62225eb339ae5c00f.jpg20191023_211408.thumb.jpg.f4b6d6d2e6d5fd9a81c7e7467cefadab.jpg

Each of these not only has a letter to accompany them, but these were the 6 part mini series bound under one cover. The Store and Winner Editions each had a different cover to #1 . The winners of the Raffle recieved one with a Newsstand Cover version and The Stores received a Collector's Edition Cover #1. 1574836218_20191023_211632(1).jpg.1fcaac336b251dd3e423bca4fe3fe9cf.jpg1174100113_20191023_211714(1).jpg.c4fb1a3e04dfb4da393b74406f9e97b7.jpg

Here are the Graded and now noted differences on the label as well as the letters. 20210401_150858.thumb.jpg.ddc9c7e349a5a43e3354c1f4774bad10.jpg20210401_150918.thumb.jpg.9cb6503966f396ceb2cdf8f8fe2d7d03.jpg20210401_150931.thumb.jpg.cef2eb7e50296471cc6b57a443d61831.jpg20210401_151029.thumb.jpg.5e181bc7a53ce8f4761ccd6a1d1246c3.jpg20210401_151038.thumb.jpg.cdc74e0bdf142a5593a31a2e2979d8b7.jpg20210401_151107.thumb.jpg.43932136b5221b57ae007baa5349d4af.jpg20210401_151151.thumb.jpg.871713a0f0337d7a4fe83063faa67416.jpg20210401_151200.thumb.jpg.19115f7fc5d5670ed5f552a98f79e045.jpg20210401_151250.thumb.jpg.20e7726789211bbdffc53ddbc5e72ed8.jpg20210401_151334.thumb.jpg.d05c4d1cb67e72cc8f7c40f71d801cc2.jpg20210401_151340.thumb.jpg.872dce18466f92fcc5a1296ddef5c1d8.jpg20210401_151401.thumb.jpg.fe9e38c2cba11d711ccbc945da203f5f.jpg

These are very cool!  Shouldn't they have labeled one 'Raffle Store Edition' and the other 'Raffle Customer Edition' to make it even clearer?  That appears to be what you had noted on your MECHANICAL ERROR submission form... or am I missing something?

I always appreciate your knowledge of this entire era of Superman exclusives, variants, etc.

Thank you. It was what I noted, but short of changing the entire census they had to keep one the way it was originally listed and add a new variant . This was the way they chose to do it. I am just glad that they added it and  documented it. :cloud9:

I think it is really cool that there are still books like this out there that even CGC is seeing for the first time.  Just imagine if you hadn't pointed this out... the book would have been encapsulated and no one would have been the wiser!  I also wonder if all of the other 11 slabbed were identified correctly!

Thanks for sharing this piece of history!

I know at least two are correct.  I had slabbed them a while back. I still have 6 copies raw. Have been waiting to see if they would note and break it out. I am still deciding when/if to submit.  You are welcome. I was glad to get my originals graded. The rest I have picked up over the years.
