Congratulations! This is fantastic! 

I always wondered on big ticket items, do you trust the mail system or prefer face to face transactions? 

Thanks. I was nervous about having it sent through the mail even though the seller told me they had it insured but was lucky that we both lived relatively close to each other. After I had sent the payment we worked it out and agreed to meet at a public place that was equal distance from each other which ended up being a McDonald's.

"Yes. I'd like a Big Mac, Fries, Large Diet coke, and the Original title Splash Art to Rom #1, please."

Incidentally, I see that nobody commented on Sal's signature being right in the middle of the art. That was something he did for a long time (I have a title splash by Sal that he also signed inside the art). Becase this is his standard OP, I assume this doesn't diminish the value? Granted, this is a legit grail piece. But still...

No impact to value in my eyes

He does this all the time that I don’t even notice it anymore.

I think it's awful and definitely ruins the piece for me. Same as all the others he's signed similarly.

Glaring. Made my eyes bleed, but only a little so don't call 911! Seriously though, I didn't post on this because I didn't want to be the debbie downer in OP's thread. So now I am, and OP probably doesn't care anyway. Too bad Sal has such bad taste though. It really is awful.

I didn't even notice the signature on first viewing.  I think the fact that there are so many effect lines helps it not be a distraction.  If it was empty space with the signature thrown in there, I'd maybe have a mild issue (mild only because of the grail nature of the art).  Huge congrats on what I can see is a great piece of art, and I've never read a Rom comic in my life.  He was in a Hulk issue once, as a guest at Rick and Marlo's wedding, but that was as close as it ever got I think.
