This is my copies and yes it’s HARD to spot it in any conventions or shops. First copy from my local shop in 1999 is pure luck. Last year was at Frank and sons is another pure luck. When seller pull it out from his bin and I said I want it. There were another people who saw it and want it too but I was there first. 😅

Dump or not, Todd autos still desirable to own by Todd’s fans. I think people would keep their best copy and rid of the lesser grades.

No doubt. I'm among them. That name was pure magic to me when I spotted it on a comic in 1990. 

But there were 13,000 copies subbed, and a TON of those copies were subbed by people who are NOT Todd fans...or, particularly, comic fans at all...and that's who will dump.

Happened with Miller. Happened with Stan. Even happened with Frazetta....slightly. And it will happen with McFarlane.

It's a great opportunity for the wise. ;)

Yeah...I subbed 5 300s...got 4 9.6s and a 9.4. Was realllllllllllllly hoping for at least 1 9.8. Was actually hoping for 2, which would have covered my costs, and then I could keep the other.

Sigh.

On the other hand, got 5 9.8 298s, so there's that. 

Yeah I saw that between  the last census update only three 9.8 out of the 126 reported. However, two of those 9.8 were possibly previously blue labels because of the -2 universal 9.8.

Got my books back. Noticed two things. 
 

1. My requests for certain colored pens were largely ignored. All the signatures look good but I had 6-7 books that were for my private collection signed in ink colors that were not what I requested. I am not talking wonky  colors requests either. 
 

2. I have a mix of T. McFarlane and Todd McFarlane. I believe this had to do with the size of the window cutout.

Dang I got my results,

I sent six graded 9.8 books. Two of those six were Amazing 300.

Three came back 9.8

The others 9.4. 9.6 9.6

Thankfully  two of three 9.8s are 300.

Some have predicted that a number of comics from this signing will come to market at bargain prices.... your wait may not be long.

I had requested the front AND back cover of MCC#1 be signed and I'd pay whatever they wanted, but sadly only front was signed and only the T.McF sig -- also the copy I sent in was already slabbed, so I accepted their fee for de-slabbing - but still only got a T. McF and I guess I will never know the "window" that CGC left for Todd to sign in ..... whose fault I will not know ... I did call about the back cover not being signed, and they said that with the overwhelming volume they could not do special requests.

So I'm guessing your ink request would get the same response.

I saw one ASM #316 signed for someone   1) in black  and 2) across the "Amazing Spider-man" lettering at top of book  -- my god, I hope I don't get something   like that on my 316 !!  nice white marker with full name  just below half way down - please!

This will be true of those with no patience. 
Out of my submissions I will sell some at just above cost to recoup my grading fees. The rest will be whatever the market is willing to pay as they are not your mainstream Todd books.

Wanna trade a #300 9.8 for a #298 9.8...?

:D

Here’s the result of my 25 CGCs and it should arrive by tomorrow. :wishluck:

let you know all 25 comics was cleaned and pressed before send to CGC and it was done by local. I am extremely satisfied with result because out of 25, only one got 9.2. That was unexpected but after watched some videos. It might happened by his handling. I am not complain because it’s still rare find copy and very rare to have it signed by Todd. I was absolute soaked that there was one request that I asked actual granted!!!! You will able to figure that one and I will post here when I have it. 😍

Mine was received on 12/13.  Still sitting at Received.  No movement at all.  Prolly won't see any for a week or so I'd imagine with the press...

ATTENTION!!!!!! PLEASE READ!!!!


I just called CGC because they charged me an extra $30 on my recent submission today. Apparently the computer system has an error with labels for this signing and charged u $5 for EVERY BOOK!! So basically I wanted 2 labels but I was charged for 8. This charge will be added to ur next submission if u don’t get charged before hand if u added the books that needed labels on the same submission form as non labeled books like I did. So just be aware when u submit next time.

Is this for the special labels only (Spidey, Venom, Hulk etc)?  Or even just the regular old yellow SS label?

 

I don't even know if they do the special character labels for SS but that question came to mind

Special labels.  I wanted the nyc Spider-Man and venom ones.  Regular labels (blue and yellow) cost nothing.
