REGARDING CGC CASES: CGC is an independent, third-party grading service that grades and then encapsulates comic books. This encapsulation process has potential inherent results. These include, but are not limited to, either the left, right, or both sides of the outer case not being sealed completely, an appearance of waviness, or the existence of Newtons Rings (an interference pattern created by the reflection of light between two surfaces) that can appear and are frequently mistaken for moisture or oil inside the case (in actuality, this effect is between the inner softer plastic shell and the outer, hard plastic shell and are not on the book itself). These and other results can occur during the encapsulation process.
These effects, however, do not in any way affect the book itself or its designated grade. As the CGC book is tightly encapsulated inside the soft plastic case, this will not result in damage to the book. If you are sensitive to any of the above-outlined issues regarding CGC cases poorly sealed sides, Newtons Rings, general imperfections in the plastic case, a slight movement of the interior soft-plastic case inside the outer shell, etc. The item "CGC SS 9.8 Batman Maxx #1 Nathan Szerdy Variant Original Poison Ivy Art Sketch" is in sale since Monday, April 15, 2019.
