  1. I only have the direct versions and that’s where I observed the difference. I don’t see any obvious differences between the UPC versions. Sorry
  2. See if the following provides any clarification based on what you have:
  3. The webbing is colored differently on the bagged vs unbagged versions.
  4. Rich - if you have any more of this available, I'll take one. Let me know. Thanks!
  5. Not yet, but hopefully soon! As a point of reference, Signature Series books that I submitted at Terrificon, which was held 8/9-8/11/2019, are marked as “received” 8/22/19 in CGC’s Submission Tracking.
  6. Rich - I know this is a late ask, but if you have any more of these available I'll take one. No problem if not. Thanks in advance.
  7. We had some parallel experiences for sure!! I have a recap of my Friday posted at:
  8. Heading to NYCC tomorrow (Fri 104). Looking forward to getting signatures from Jim Lee, John Byrne and more!! Check out my game plan for the day at:
  9. I ordered it as well. I’m leaning towards having one book signed by Claremont (witnessed) and Byrne (unwitnessed) and submitting for the yellow label with green banner. The other books that Byrne signs I’ll either keep in my collection unslabbed, or submit to CBCS for their red signature verified label.
  10. Shazam # 28 -- 1st Bronze Age appearance of Black Adam!!! Opening bid $55 with US shipping included.
  11. If you have any remaining availability for this, I'll take one. Let me know. Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks for the suggestion. Definitely some things to think about as I proceed...
  13. The only straight to bag may have been New Mutants 87. This is one of two copies purchased at publication - I sold the other a couple of years ago. The other stuff was likely read and then bagged. Some were bought when I was 7 or 8 years old, so under those circumstances, and without pressing, they graded out reasonably well.
  14. Check out this summary, including turnaround time, results, and some takeaways, from my first submission to CGC. Let me know what you think. Thanks!!!
