Just got this back from CGC last night, and I'm a bit confused...

Clearly there's a CGC error regarding the price... are they also wrong about this being Canadian?

I'm probably going to crack it out (it's only a 7.5), but I'm still curious about this...

You have the regular U.S newsstand edition and CGC did label it incorrectly, it is not the 95¢ Canadian Price Variant.

Ironically, when I call them twice to correct a label and add the Canadian Edition they still screw it up and don't even bother even though I'm assured its done.

Quality Control is not their strong suit.

great, thank you both!

Seems like I've had labeling issues with every-other-invoice... usually incorrect pedigree designation though, so this one was new...

Thanks again :)

:/

I thought the whole point of CGC adding the cover price info to the label/system was to avoid this.

:facepalm:

I think maybe "7" is how they write "nine" in Canada :)

Like that scene in Canadian Bacon when police officer Dan Akroyd makes the Americans translate their anti-Canadian grafitti into French...
