The CGC Case
The crystal clear plastic’s superior optics unleash a comic’s true color and vibrancy. The redesigned label is cleaner and easier to read, showcasing the grade and even more details about the book, and allowing you to easily identify the book from both the front and back.
The holder’s sturdy outer plastic better resists impacts. The holder design uses precise pressure to lock the comic in place for enhanced protection, and the hologram affirming authenticity is now hot stamped and embedded into the plastic for improved protection and increased security.
The CGC holder and label are easy to apply in fewer steps, which streamlines the entire encapsulation process. The simplicity and speed of the process help the CGC team turn books around faster with even less handling.
Comics / Magazines we grade
The CGC holder is made of state-of-the-art materials and is designed to meet the needs and demands of comic book collectors.
CGC grades most standard comics that do not exceed the following dimensions:
10-1/2" tall (266.7 mm)
7-5/8" wide (192.532 mm)
1/4" thick (6.35 mm)
CGC will NOT grade comics that have a hardcover, a jeweled cover or treasury-sized comics. There may be other comic books that we cannot certify. Exclusion of an item from this text does not guarantee certification. Please remember that no floating items can be encapsulated with the comic book (i.e. Certificates of Authenticity, Pedigree COA's, free-floating 3-D glasses, poly-bags). Poly-bagged comics must be taken out of the poly-bag before being graded.
Magazines We Grade
CGC grades most magazines that do not exceed the following dimensions:
11-1/2" tall (292.1 mm)
8-7/8" wide (223.012 mm)
1/2" thick (12.7 mm)
Certified Guaranty Company (CGC®), the world’s leading comic book certification and grading company, has added concert posters, handbills and postcards to its menu of collectibles grading services. The expansion enables collectors of these rare pieces, which promoted the live music of legendary bands and performers, such as the Beatles, the Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin, to enjoy the same accurate, consistent and impartial grading that CGC has delivered to the comic industry since 1999.
The decision to expand into concert posters is one that CGC Director of Operations, Harshen Patel, believes is a natural fit for the company. “The experience we have across our organization with the handling, grading, and protection of rare paper collectibles puts CGC in a unique position to add value in this market,” said Patel. “There are also great similarities between the collector bases we serve, with comics and music fans sharing a passion for both the history of their respective industries and the artwork created by their iconic figures.”
