Oh man. I am the TOTAL n00b. Recently fallen in love with comics and just won three signed comics on eBay that I was oh-so-proud of.

 

Should've read this first.. can't get the SS obviously. So perhaps I should just go for normal CGC. Bummer.

 

Oh well - learn the hard way.

It's possible to get a Green label...Qualified.  I have only one in my collection that I bought earlier this year and it 'Qualified'...so to speak. (thumbsu

Thanks mate - I didn't realise this.  I think I ended up flipping those books back in the day - but I'll go for a dig through my boxes to find out! :D

I want to send some books in to get signed and was wondering if there is a list or some kind of a guide as to what books a artist will sign, i.e. Neal Adams, will he sign any detective comic or just the books he did the artwork for?

i'd say it might depend on the artist/creator.  Usually if there is some restriction about their own books like "Alan Moore won't sign DC books" or we're only signing "XXABC TITLE", it will be made very very clear in the posting.

 BUT I don't' think very many creators/artists expect to sign books they didn't work on unless possibly they 'invented' the character, Todd McFarlane with Venom.  If you're considering getting a book signed the creator literally had nothing to do with, I would contact the facilitator first and ask them about it beforehand, and not submit it unless I got a concrete affirmative.  Of course there are many creators happy to just take the money and sign anything (no judgment here, I would too), but better to ask first IMO.

I have books signed by Neal Adams, but never had them graded. Can I send these already signed books to the private signing for NA, pay the fees, CGC will witness him will look at them and say yeah that’s mine, and then Ill get the signature series grade? Or will the existing signatures be considered defects and NA will have to sign them again? What’s the rule? New to this. Please help

Welcome to the boards! For future reference you should be able to find questions like this via the search bar up near the top of the page, or potentially in this very thread.

However, here's answers to your questions in case they haven't been answered here:

  1. No, you can't have him give CGC the thumbs up that they're signed by him. A witness needs to be present at the time the book was signed. 
  2. If you submit the book as it is, it will get a green Qualified label saying that there's a name written on the cover.
  3. If Neal signs the book again you will get a Signature Series/Qualified label, stating that the book was signed by Neal Adams but there's also a name written on the cover.

I have a copy of Vampirella: Valentines Day Special #1 that is graded by CBCS it is also has a witnessed  signature by the artist. If I was to send this in to have a new holder by CGC would they honor the CBCS witnessed signature, or would it get a green label?

They don't honor signatures witnessed by any other companies.  so green label

OK, this is a newbie question, I couldn't see the answer in this thread, nor through the search function.

Is a CGC graded signed copy considered of higher or lower value than another copy of the same issue graded at the same level by CGC? That is, is a CGC yellow label 5.0 Stan lee signed book worth more or less than a blue label CGC 5.0 of the same issue? Personally, I would prefer to see the cover as it was created, but interested in what the consensus is for this.

Probably not the answer you want, but it really just depends on who you're asking and the book in question.

it really depends on the book.  But you can also look at ebay sold searches of whatever book you're into to get a gauge.
