I just pulled a few nice NM/MT VVSS books :Rai #9 & #21, Magnus #25, X-O database #1 . Here is where it gets strange: X-O #14 & 15 signed by Sears both #1061/5000 sealed in a Valiant heavy milar holder with a gold seal of auth.
Then I also found a dark dominion #1 signed by Shooter with 3 defiant promo cards /5000. Any ideas??

Were these dealer incentives? Does anyone know?

Yeah something that always gets me about signed books w/ coas is that I always remember a story about a guy who made maybe 100 x-men #1 signed by someone and then printed up a bunch of COA's and sold them. He said that he will see one on ebay every once and a while...that kinda steers me away from paying a premium to have a comic with writing no it...however I would like to get that rai 0 on dino's page...

At these same cons in Miami they actually printed up their own COAs (had their own table set up for it) and would sell them for $3 a pop. They were generic as to the artist; used to be a bunch of comic pros would go down there for cons. Easy place to be entertained.

In fact ...

I remember seeing one Valiant artist who was so bleary eyed at 11 a.m. that his eyes were almost swollen shut. He looked like a week-old puppy. Signed a few things for me, very nice guy. Name rhymes with tostada.

And another must have been a little mouthy to the hired help at the local watering hole ... he was sporting a shiner around his left eye.

The Xo 14/15 signed set is listed on the signed books list with a picture (that I stole from dan's site). It comes up on ebay fairly often and isnt worth that much but its pretty cool. I have no idea as to its origin.

The rai #0 is indeed cool as Dawg pointed out. We need our next VcVSS to look like this.

When I was snapping pics of some of these books last night I had a great idea for the next VcVSS. I gotta get in touch with arch and tell him.

Was wondering if any dealers on the board might also have one of these and how they got it?

When Defiant cancelled their last card set, they sent out a letter thanking the retailer's who had ordered the cards. Included with the letter was a signed DD #1 by Shooter, with NO COA, plus three promo cards from the cancelled card set. I got this 'package' deal from two different local comic dealers.

COOOL...from the collection of ZWH. ;)

Previously, the collection of Joe Petrilak.

Come on, it's been like TWO MONTHS since I mentioned him. ;)

It's one of the only GOOD books I actually got from him! :)
