Hi All,

So quick question, I noticed with the Signature Series, it says that it has to be witnessed by a CGC rep or from the author or publisher. 

So if you have a comic with a COA from the artist, will they still count that as signature series? 

Also, what about sketch covers with the authors signature.  Example is IDW's TMNT #1 RI-D cover variant.  They are noted in the comic as all signed and sketched by Kevin Eastman.  So if I send one to be graded does it still count as signature series?  If it doesn't I would rather keep them ungraded.

Please let me know what you have experienced with CGC, first time using them.

If the books are already in your possession then the "Chain of Custody" has been broken and best you can get is a green label. Here's the thread discussion about it.

CGC doesn't accept COAs as proof for their Signature Series program. There are ways that an artist can submit a book they themselves signed or sketched directly to CGC and have it qualify for the signature series, but as Antyreal mentioned it's all about the chain of custody; once it's broken, the book is no longer eligible for SS.
