CGC further guarantees that its holders are free from manufacturing defects for a period of 5 years from the date of certification. Your exclusive remedy for such holder defect shall be the replacement of the defective holder at no charge. CGC will not replace any holder that it determines within its sole discretion was subjected to deliberate or unintentional abuse, or if the damage is the result of storage in a hazardous environment. For CGC graded collectibles, the assigned grade represents our opinion, as grading is subjective. Because of the fragile nature of these collectibles, the grade is not guaranteed. Clerical errors, mechanical errors and typos are NOT guaranteed. If requested, CGC will remedy any mechanical error with respect to the description or grade of a comic on its label, free of charge. It is the duty of the buyer and seller of a CGC-certified comic to examine the label for mechanical errors and to return such comics for correction when warranted. The determination of what constitutes a mechanical error is at the sole discretion of CGC. If a comic book is removed from its holder, under no circumstances will the comic book receive a Signature Series label if sent back for certification.

DAMAGE OR LOSS IN TRANSIT. Due to their fragile nature, comic books can be damaged while in a CGC holder if improperly handled, stored or displayed. By using CGC’s products/services, you agree that CGC is not responsible for damage or loss whatsoever occurring during transit to or from CGC’s facility, or thereafter. The risk of damage or loss during transit and thereafter is entirely upon you. Unless CGC receives special delivery instructions from you, CGC will return books to you by carrier of its choice. If you wish to control your risk of damage or loss by transit, you should make arrangements to pick up your books directly at CGC’s facility.

EXCLUSION OF WARRANTIES/LIMITATION OF REMEDIES.

If you wish to seek any remedy to the extent allowed against CGC, you must notify CGC in writing within 5 days of the time that you become aware of the facts giving rise to such remedy. You agree that failure to provide such notice constitutes a waiver of such remedy. To the extent that a Court determines that any part of the foregoing provision is unenforceable, then the remaining parts of the provision shall survive.

THIS GUARANTEE REPLACES AND SUPERSEDES ALL OTHER WARRENTIES, EXPRESS OF IMPLIED, AND WHETHER OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS OR OTHERWISE. THE REMEDIES PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE EXCLUSIVE, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT, ALL OTHER REMEDIES AGAINST CGC, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, ARE WAIVED.

THIS GUARANTEE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA AS APPLIED TO TRANSACTIONS TAKING PLACE WHOLLY WITHIN FLORIDA BETWEEN FLORIDA RESIDENTS. CLAIMANTS UNDER THIS GUARANTEE HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY AND EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL AND SUBJECT-MATTER JURISDICTION OF THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF SARASOTA, STATE OF FLORIDA, FOR ANY DISPUTE ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS GUARANTEE.

Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Guarantee, in the event of loss or damage of your comic by CGC, CGC will only be responsible for the LESSER of the actual fair market value or the submitter declared value.

This Guarantee represents a clarification of prior and existing versions and in no way is intended to expand any rights.

CGC Signature Series®

Applies to comics, magazines, and other collectibles with the yellow CGC Signature Series label and purple CGC Signature Series Restored label.

1. APPLICATION OF GUARANTEE: This guarantee (the “CGC Signature Series Authenticity Guarantee”) is offered by CGC with respect to collectible items contained in a CGC protective holder bearing the words “CGC Signature Series” which are submitted to CGC for its “Authentication Review” service.

2. STATEMENT OF GUARANTEE: Subject to the limitations contained in this CGC Signature Series Authenticity Guarantee, CGC guarantees the authenticity of the signature inscribed on any collectible item contained in a CGC protective holder bearing the words “CGC Signature Series.” For purposes of this CGC Signature Series Authenticity Guarantee, a signature is considered authentic if it was inscribed by the named signatory in the presence of a CGC representative.

3. EXCLUSIVE REMEDY: In the event that a subsequent purchaser of a collectible item contained in a CGC protective holder bearing the words “CGC Signature Series” believes the signature not to be authentic, such person may submit the collectible item to CGC and purchase CGC’s Authentication Review services. If the signature is determined under such review by CGC not to be authentic (meaning, CGC determines that the signature was not inscribed by the named signatory in the presence of a CGC representative), then CGC shall pay to such subsequent purchaser an amount equal to the difference between (a) the lower of (i) the submitter’s purchase price for the collectible item or (ii) the fair market value of the collectible item if the signature were authentic; and (b) the current market value of the collectible item based upon what CGC believes, in its sole opinion, to be reliable current market information. CGC’s determination of fair market value and current market value shall be binding on all parties.

4. LIMITATIONS: WARNING: The CGC Signature Series Authenticity Guarantee is limited. The CGC Signature Series Authenticity Guarantee applies solely to the signature, and not to the collectible item itself. The CGC Signature Series Authenticity Guarantee does not apply if the CGC holder has been damaged, unsealed, tampered with, removed or altered. Clerical errors, mechanical errors and typos are NOT guaranteed. If requested, CGC will remedy any mechanical error with respect to the description or grade of a collectible on its label, free of charge. It is the duty of the buyer and seller of a CGC-certified collectible to examine the label for mechanical errors and to return such collectible for correction when warranted. The determination of what constitutes a clerical error is at the sole discretion of CGC. CGC does not utilize handwriting analysis or other similar methodologies to determine authenticity; authenticity is based solely on the presence of a CGC representative at the time the collectible item is signed.

5. IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL TERMS: THIS CGC SIGNATURE SERIES AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE REPLACES AND SUPERSEDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED AND WHETHER OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS OR OTHERWISE. THE REMEDIES PROVIDED IN THIS CGC SIGNATURE SERIES AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE ARE EXCLUSIVE. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS CGC SIGNATURE SERIES AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEE, ALL OTHER REMEDIES AGAINST CGC, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, ARE WAIVED.

THIS GUARANTEE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA AS APPLIED TO TRANSACTIONS TAKING PLACE WHOLLY WITHIN FLORIDA BETWEEN FLORIDA RESIDENTS. CLAIMANTS UNDER THIS GUARANTEE HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY AND EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL AND SUBJECT-MATTER JURISDICTION OF THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF SARASOTA, STATE OF FLORIDA, FOR ANY DISPUTE ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS GUARANTEE.

Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Guarantee, in the event of loss or damage of your collectible by CGC, CGC will only be responsible for the LESSER of the actual fair market value or the submitter declared valued.

This Guarantee represents a clarification of prior and existing versions and in no way is intended to expand any rights created thereunder.

CGC Lobby Cards

Applies to lobby cards with the blue CGC Universal Grade label and purple CGC Restored Grade label.

STATEMENT OF GUARANTEE: Subject to the limitations contained in this Statement of Guarantee and the Certification Notice below, CGC guarantees the authenticity of a lobby card contained in the protective CGC holder. A lobby card is considered authentic if it was printed for the purposes of promoting the movie or event it describes by or for the film studio / distributor / producer, at or near either the time of initial exhibition of the film or event or its official re-release, whichever is applicable.

CERTIFICATION NOTICE: The CGC certified collectible is guaranteed to be authentic pursuant to the terms described above. For CGC graded collectibles, the assigned grade represents our opinion, as grading is subjective. Clerical errors, mechanical errors and typos are NOT guaranteed. If requested, CGC will remedy any mechanical error with respect to the description or grade of a lobby card on its label, free of charge. It is the duty of the buyer and seller of a CGC-certified lobby card to examine the label for mechanical errors and to return such lobby cards for correction when warranted. The determination of what constitutes a mechanical error is at the sole discretion of CGC. Certain collectibles may receive a ‘pedigree’ designation at CGC’s discretion and based on available information believed by CGC to be accurate at the time of certification.

The CGC holder is designed to be tamper-evident and has other security features to discourage fraudulent holder tampering. The CGC holder must be completely intact for the collectible to be considered an authentic CGC certified collectible.

Proper storage is essential to the preservation of a collectible. Extremes in light, temperature, moisture, vibration, temperature changes, other environmental hazards, and mishandling, such as folding or bending, can contribute to the deterioration of a collectible, even if it is sealed in a CGC holder. For maximum protection, CGC-certified collectibles should be stored in an immobile, dark, temperature and humidity controlled area.

Certification by CGC does not assure liquidity, assure universal acceptance of the CGC grading opinion, or eliminate the risks associated with a speculative and unregulated market. The CGC holder is designed to open in the event that removal of the enclosed collectible is desired. Opening the holder voids the CGC certification. To avoid damage to the collectible, extreme care in following the correct procedure must be exercised. CGC will not be responsible for damage that occurs to a collectible while not in CGC’s possession. Collectors who are not familiar with the holder opening procedure may contact an authorized CGC dealer or CGC Customer Service for assistance.

CGC guarantees this collectible has been inspected by at least two professionals and a restoration check has been performed. Any detected restoration is noted on the label in general or specific terms. While the market determines the value of collectibles, some experts believe that restored collectibles have less value than unrestored collectibles of the same type and grade. A good faith effort is made to detect restoration, but CGC does not guarantee this process or results. If restoration is detected, most restored collectibles will be assigned a marked color-coded “restored” label by CGC. “Universal” marked and color-coded CGC-certified collectibles with no color touch or glue noted on the label have been examined for restoration, and none was found.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONAL TERMS: THIS GUARANTEE REPLACES AND SUPERSEDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR OTHERWISE. THE REMEDIES PROVIDED IN THIS CGC GUARANTEE ARE EXCLUSIVE EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS CGC GUARANTEE, ALL OTHER REMEDIES AGAINST CGC, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, ARE WAIVED.

THIS GUARANTEE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA AS APPLIED TO TRANSACTIONS TAKING PLACE WHOLLY WITHIN FLORIDA BETWEEN FLORIDA RESIDENTS. CLAIMANTS UNDER THIS GUARANTEE HEREBY WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY AND EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL AND SUBJECT-MATTER JURISDICTION OF THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF SARASOTA, STATE OF FLORIDA, FOR ANY DISPUTE ARISING FROM OR RELATED TO THIS GUARANTEE.

Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Guarantee, in the event of loss or damage of your collectible by CGC, CGC will only be responsible for the LESSER of the actual fair market value or the submitter declared valued.

This Guarantee represents a clarification of prior and existing versions and in no way is intended to expand any rights created thereunder.

Pedigree Criteria

Countless collections of comic books have surfaced over the years. Some of the collections that have come out only include a handful of comics, while others contain thousands. Every now and then, a collection is found that is so exceptional that it becomes recognized as a pedigree.

The Edgar Church/Mile High find was the first original owner collection to ever be called a pedigree. Though this collection was found after a few other collections that are considered pedigrees today, it remains the most famous pedigree in our hobby to date and it is the reason that collectors started to call certain collections pedigrees.

Pedigree status is acknowledged by CGC based on a combination of the following criteria:

  • The collection must be original owner. This means that the books must have been bought off the newsstand as they came out.  For example, a collector cannot buy a high-grade run of 1940s comics from various sources and expect it to be considered a pedigree.  The original owner need not currently own the comics for the collection to be considered for pedigree status.

  • The collection must be of vintage material. This means that a large collection consisting of comics from the 1970s to present cannot be considered a pedigree.  In fact, until the sale of some key White Mountain books in a Sotheby’s auction in the early 1990s, Silver Age comics were not accepted as pedigree collections. Comic books from 1966 and after are relatively common in high grade compared to earlier issues.  This occurred as a direct result of a tremendous explosion in the number of collectors in fandom in the mid-1960s. Collections that are primarily from 1966 and after must have average grades of at least 9.4 to be considered a pedigree.

  • The collection must consist of a considerable number of comics. Most pedigree collections consist of at least 1,000 books and some number over 10,000 comics. The collections that consist of fewer books, such as the Allentown and Denver collections, must include extremely rare, important, and/or key material.

  • The collection must be high-grade. Comics from the Silver Age in general would have to be 9.2 and higher, and a collection of exclusive Silver Age material must have an average grade of 9.4. Golden Age comics would have to be high-grade as well.  For example, the Lost Valley collection consisted of many golden age books from before 1941 that were technically mid-grade, but were almost across the board the highest graded copy for that book. Page quality must be nice as well.

Many of the pedigree collections were recognized and accepted by the hobby before CGC came into existence in late 1999.

CGC recognizes the following pedigree collections on the CGC label:

  • Allentown
  • Aurora
  • Bethlehem
  • Big Apple
  • Boston
  • Bowling Green
  • Carson City
  • Central Valley
  • Chicago
  • Cosmic Aeroplane

  • Twilight
  • Twin Cities

Please note that the purchase of an uncertified pedigree book from any collector or dealer does not obligate CGC to recognize the book in question as a pedigree copy.

If you are the current owner of a collection that you feel might be a pedigree, CGC is more than happy to discuss the potential pedigree status with you. Please feel free to call and ask to speak to a Pedigree Specialist.

Restoration Terms

Repairing comic books has been around in our hobby since the first comics were sold to the public. It is natural for people to want their books to look as new as possible or to remain intact so that they can continue to be read. Early in fandom history, simple and crude repairs were performed by the owner of the comic for these reasons. For example, a couple of pieces of tape were used to hold on the cover, a dab of Dad’s wood glue was used to close a tear, some crayon made the cover look better, etc. As the hobby grew and comics became more expensive, the need to define and describe various repairs became apparent. Some repairs remained acceptable to collectors and were “grandfathered,” such as tape. Most repairs, however, were defined as restoration.

Restoration can be broken down into two main types: treatments intended to prolong the existence of the comic book and treatments done for aesthetics. Both types of restoration involve the introduction of non-original material to create or facilitate a desired effect.

CGC defines restoration as treatments intended to return the comic book to a known or assumed state through the addition of non-original material. Examples of restoration include:

  • Color touch. Using pigment to hide color flecks, color flakes, and larger areas of missing color. Examples of pigments may include paint (acrylic, oil, watercolor, etc.), pencil crayon, pastel, pen, marker, white-out, etc. Color touch is sometimes called inpainting.
  • Pieces added (piece replacement). Added pieces to replace areas of missing paper. Piece replacement material can be non-original paper such as wood or cotton fiber papers, married from a donor comic book, or color-copied pieces. This process is sometimes called infilling.
  • Tear seals. Sealing a tear using an adhesive. An adhesive may be cellulose, chemical, or protein-based glues as well as anything that acts as an adhesive, such as saliva.
  • Spine split seals. Sealing a spine split using adhesive (adhesives are described above under “tear seals”).
  • Reinforcement. A process by which a weak or split page or cover is reinforced with adhesive and reinforcement paper. Reinforcement papers are commonly wood or cotton fiber papers.
  • Cleaned (lightened). An aqueous process to lighten the paper color or remove soluble acids, often using chemical oxidation, solvents, or water. This process is sometimes called cleaned and pressed or C&P. Common chemicals used to lighten paper include benzene, acetone, xylene, sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, chloramine-T, chlorine dioxide, sodium borohydrate, etc.
  • Re-glossed. Enhancing the cover gloss, typically through the application of canned re-glossing/art fixodent spray.

Non-additive processes such as dry cleaning (non-aqueous removal of dirt, soot, or other non-original surface material), pressing (removal or reduction of bends and creases), and tape removal, are not considered restoration by CGC. In accordance with hobby standards, the addition of tape is not considered restoration but will always be noted on the CGC label.

While we believe that tape should never be used on a comic book for any reason, our hobby has accepted that people used tape to keep comic books from falling apart. This measure was taken even before comics became collectibles. In the early days of fandom, some sellers stated that tape was not a defect and some collectors even accepted tape on mid grades. CGC will downgrade for tape, as we consider it a defect no matter why or when it was added.

Restoration has become a controversial issue in the comic book hobby because it is not always disclosed by sellers, but can dramatically affect the value of a comic book. CGC protects against this by ALWAYS disclosing detected restoration. In some cases, restoration is not readily detectible to novices or individuals lacking expertise in restoration detection. Even experienced hobbyists miss restoration when grading comic books. For this reason, CGC has made the restoration check a mandatory component of the CGC certification process..
