I came across this listing today.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pearl-Crystal-Beat-Free-Floating-6-5x14-Ruby-Red-Snare-Drum-Shell-/400992145541?ssPageName=ADME:X:eRTM:US:1123

Funny thing is... the shell has no pearl badge. The seller claims they are genuine pearl shells and that they come in pearl boxes. Can Pearl confirm? Do you guys ship out CB shells with no logos?

They're just fine I believe. PDFer wsgnst received a shell sans badge, and known legit Pearl dealer DCP has one on their site: http://www.drumcenternh.com/pearl-crystal-beat-acrylic-free-floating-snare-shell-14x5-ruby-red.html

Agreed. That's Dana Bentley's drum shop... he is 100% legit.

It's truth! I'm guessing a few more CB shells made it out into the world without badges. In another thread it appears that on the Japan Pearl site the CB FF snares don't have badges, just labels on the chassis.

I concur, by experience.
