This is a serious newbie question but does a "facilitator" have the ability to qualify signatures for yellow label signature series autographs. I have slabbed 9.8 books that I'd send in for Jim Shooter if the facilitator also opens slabs and then does the direct submission. Is that a thing? I'm in the same spot w. Joe Rubenstein who is appearing at Pasadena Comic Con next weekend. Would love to get the books signed but they're slabbed and would need a way for CGC to verify signatures.

I too am curious if there will be a CGC SS SS witness there. 

I see the alpha omega link, but they show you mailing to them, but I am local and am curious if one will be there.

It looks like a big event, I would think CGC would have a booth there since the show is in the same state. I wouldn't be suprised if Alpha Omega would have a booth there too. It never hurts to ask them and they are good at responding back too.

If you are sending in a slabbed book to a facilatator they are qualified to break the slab open and prep the book for you to get the signature that you want. They should also have a witness to see that the artist actual signed it. Then they will ship it out to CGC. All forms sent to CGC will have their information signed at the top of form and that how CGC will confirm that it is a legitiate facilatator. If you were going to a con and CGC happens to be there. They will crack open your slab and get it ready for it to be signed, BUT you have to bring it with you to the artist to get it signed yourself. Also you need to have a witness with you all times when you are getting your books signed. If no one is there to verify it then it is all for nothing.
