I prefer a raw unsigned copy, but open to slabs. Thanks!

All "officially-released" copies were signed and numbered.

The only known unsigned copies were from JayJay Jackson's archive. A few of those were signed for CGC witnessed yellow labels, so the number of unsigned copies remaining might be less than 5 in the world. Not impossible, but pretty close.

Actually, there are probably at least 7 chances:

I picked one (signed and numbered version) slabbed in the Spring. I am shocked at how much the slabbed versions are going for on Ebay right now.

There’s an unsigned 9.0 on eBay now. I made an offer on it but the seller is holding firm on $659. Could be a member, and if he doesn’t take my offer - which I think is reasonable and close to his asking price - I wish him luck with the sale.
