Today I’ll be unboxing my third shipment from the grading service Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) as I set up to sell off the comic book collection I’ve been building over 40 years.
But this one is different. The box is much lighter than the first two.
I was initially worried that the box may not contain a comic book, at least not a graded one. I was extremely pleased when I finally cut the CGC box open. I found there was one comic, and it was graded! I suppose the difference in weight was just how it was packed.
So if you’re just joining me on this journey you may wonder, why would I sell my comics? Two sons in college. ‘nuff said, right?
This shipment turned out to be Incredible Hulk #340. It’s the one with the classic Todd McFarlane cover that features Wolverine’s blades with a reflection of the Grey Hulk.
I was surprised at the grade on this one. The cover was cut with a weird angle at the top (see close-up images of this issue here: LINK). I thought that was an error and the grade would suffer. Glad it didn’t.
Watch the YouTube video to see my reaction!
((Apologies for the badly framed side camera in the video. Unfortunately it was set this way for a bunch of the unboxings. I will tried to fix a bit in post-production.))
