I couldn't believe when I saw this posted on Facebook!! With permission from the original poster, and owner, Tony Pomilla, I'm going to copy and paste what he shared.
"Tim Bildhauser of CBCS went above and beyond in researching and properly notating this variant retailer pre release Shazam #1. Tim helped me research and confirm only 300 copies published and passed out on August 17, 1973. I thought it only made sense to grade both versions to show the variant differences.
My friends, this is why I only use CBCS. Thank you Tim and Kendra."
To clarify, the 7.0 is the pre-release variant of the Ebal Shazam #1 (the 5.0) which came out a month later.

profh0011: Just noticed the FB grup has been "archived". How's come?

Jesse: There was a change in the admins and it never was an "official" FCC page. There is an official group page on facebook now. Many of the members from the archived group are there. www.facebook.com/groups/274684996585171/
