Single Highest Graded John Buscema's All time classic cover, Silver Surfer #1 !! Who in their right mind would crack a CGC 9.8 from it's holder to have it signed ? We did !! Having purchased a total of 3 9.8's over the years, this was certainly the strongest of the three in grade and the only one worthy of taking such a risk. When it arrived we were extremely excited to see that it came back looking just as fresh as the day we cracked it, only this time highlighted by Stan's own signature series label along with his signature in Silver while maintaining the coveted CGC 9.8 status. As many can attest, this does not always happen. SILVER SURFER #1 is very scarce in high grade. In fact out of all of the 1968 #1's Silver Surfer #1 is the most difficult to attain in CGC 9.8. A 50+ year old CGC 9.8 square bound Marvel is already a scarcity in it's own right, add to the fact that this particular issue boast an all black high gloss cover and was handled and signed by Stan Lee, it's no wonder that this copy resides as the "ONE AND ONLY - SINGLE HIGHEST GRADED COPY. A Silver Signature is a MUST with this book. Stan used a SILVER METALLIC INK resting his Signature perfectly spaced between the top of Silver Surfer's Surfboard and the Surfer himself. It's Stan's Signature combined with the quality of this particular CGC 9.8 copy that seals it as the SINGLE BEST COPY IN THE WORLD.
Note: This signed copy has never changed hands since signed, it remains the only signed 9.8 SS #1 we or anyone for that matter have ever owned. Straight from Stan's hand to yours. The one and only CGC 9.8 Signature Series SIlver Surfer #1 ! "The coolest Superhero in the Galaxy" --- Stan Lee
