This is the 7th unboxing from the grading service Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) as I set up to sell off my comic book collection to help pay for tuition now that two sons are in college.
This was a single issue inside the box. The first appearance of the Infinity Gauntlet in Silver Surfer #44, a newsstand variant. Considering this sat in a store’s wire rack raw it was in great shape.
Watch the YouTube video to see the CGC grades and 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 tried to fix it a bit in post-production.)
Are you interested in purchasing one of my graded comics? Right now I haven’t put my books up for sale. Send me a message if you want to be notified when it does.
I’m also on Patreon if you want to support my effort to pay for my sons’ education without buying a book!
