HI everyone.  I've never posted before, so not sure this is the correct place to start this topic.  I came across this auction on ebay this morning.  It's currently still active.  See the picture below and let me know if anyone thinks the CGC case looks odd.  The label looks like it was cut wrong.  The case also looks like it is too big for the comic.  I realize this is not the newest generation of CGC slabs, but when I looked up the certification number, the info states this was slabbed on 3/13/2018.  Is this date after the new slabs were introduced?  Obviously I'm new here so still learning, but wanted to get some opinions on what people think.

CGC census shows this was slabbed on 3/13/18, so I would expect this book to be in the newest generation of slabs.  Why would this book be in the old style slab???

This book looks like it's slabbed in a magazine case. Probably wouldn't fit into a regular case because of a spine roll.

Definitely looks unusual as its in a magazine case but the label being cut that way is throwing me off a lot I am guess as someone said maybe the spine roll and it not being a pressed book cause CGC to put it in a thicker case like for magazines just a total guess I would contact CGC and see what they say I am sure they would know.

Shouldn't this also have a new label? Census shows this was stabbed in March 2018. When did CGC go to the latest generation of labels?

This is correct. The magazine size cases never took the shape of a new label. Everything is fine.

Some of what everyone has said makes more sense now, but why does the label look so....strange...almost like it's cutoff?

Most likely it was just misaligned when the label was printed. See how far down the grade is in the box?

Yes, this looks like the book must have been a little too big for a comic holder, so they elected to put it in a magazine holder instead. The label looks correct for a magazine label, except it's not the newer style label, it's the older label. Did they use a wedge on this book? That would help hold it in place in the well...
