About the item:

Signed by Bernie Wrightson, this comic is professionally graded by CGC and is part of their special Signature Series. With Signature Series books a certified witness, employed by CGC, actually observes the signing of the comic and then immediately takes possession of the book so there is no possibility of the real autograph being switched out with another. The CGC case is scratch and defect free.

International Bidder information & Provenance Guarantee:

~ If you are and international bidder:

All international packages ship vie Priority (if less than $250, including shipping) or Express (if more than $250, including shipping). I cannot falsify customs forms by declaring a lower value than the final bid price realized. Also, please be aware per eBay policy you are responsible for any such fees, duties, taxes, etc. your government may impose upon you before they will release the package to you. It is the responsibility of the bidder to determine what their customs fees, duties, or taxes may be.  Please be aware that with international packages, USPS may sometimes release the package to a local carrier for the final delivery of the item to the buyer. If that is the case it is the responsibility of the buyer to, if necessary, make arrangements for the delivery of the package, for it to be signed for upon delivery, provide instructions to the carrier where to leave the package, etc.

~Certificate of Authenticity/Provenance:

In order to stay ahead of the collectibles market curve and offer the security and piece of mind that a mere paper COA does not and cannot provide, empire.auctions is now offering certification through Collectors Proof.  As always, all autographed items I sell were personally witnessed - by myself - being signed by the artist, writer, creator or celebrity in question. No third-party is involved. Further, art sketches - and most published pieces of original artwork I sell - were obtained directly from the artists themselves.

And now, through Collectors Proof, in order to provide this guarantee to buyers - and especially those who desire said guarantee in written form, after the auction ends and payment has been received, the item information will, upon request, be uploaded to Collectors Proof. Once uploaded, it will generate and assign the item a digital (and permanent) alpha-numeric code ("signature") linked to the primary auction photo as well as a snapshot of the complete ended eBay auction screen (offering a level of authentication and piece of mind that a mere printed certificate with an easily forged signature cannot). Once the item has an entry on Collectors Proof the "title" of the item can then be transferred from one member (Empire Auctions) to another (the high bidder). Not only is this a record of the guarantee of the authenticity of the item, traceable back to its original source, but it also maintains a permanent web-based record of ownership accessible from any computer with internet access. It also allows the current owner to print out a hardcopy of a Certificate of Authenticity (COA), if desired, but without the need of actually having to protect physical paper certificates from loss or possible destruction as the documentation is permanently maintained and available online.

Please note that this service is not available for items already independently verified for authenticity (such as CGC Signature Series Comics or pack-pulled signature cards), items that come with independent provenance from another source (which, if that is the case, will be noted in the auction description above) or items that are not in need of any authentication (such as collectibles that are not signed, or are not original artwork, etc). It is also not available for items that sell for any amount less than $49.99 (though, if desired, for a $3.00 processing fee per item, the provenance through Collectors Proof can be included.  At $49.99 or higher, the provenance through Collectors Proof is included free of charge upon request. Please note- the guarantee that I sell only signatures I personally witnessed the signer in question autograph is real regardless of whether or not you opt for the authentication service through Collectors Proof.
