I bought this Fantastic Four #243 CGC 9.8, but I am confused by the CGC label. It says "Marvel Legends Action Figure promotional. Polybag removed." However, I don't think a marvel legends version of Fantastic Four #243 even exists. 

From what I can tell, this comic looks 100% identical to the original Fantastic Four #243. Is this a mistake on the CGC label?

It looks identical to my news stand copy, what does the first page say?

Yes, it's an error label.

You can send it back to CGC and it will be fixed for free.

I hope the 9.8 is correct...is it possible that the complete label is wrong and the right label was misapplied to another comic and is actually a 9.6?...just wondering...

According to Comic Base, there was a Marvel Legends edition.  It says that it should say "Not for Resale" on the cover.

You have a point, though it looks 9.8 from the pic. I think a label error like this is pretty cool and would leave it as is. Not a big deal for me.

The grade is fine.  It's just that when it was entered into the computer system, the wrong "Fantastic Four #243" was selected.

But, would he have to pay the shipping both ways?  For something that was not his fault in any way?

In the case of a clerical error like this, the owner has to pay for shipping initially, but will get reimbursed for the shipping after the package is received.
