Announcing the 2020 CGC Registry Awards

Posted on 3/5/2020

Every year, CGC awards the top sets in the CGC Registry. Ensure your set is at its best by 5 p.m. ET on June 12 to be automatically considered for awards. Winners will be announced July 24.

Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) has announced that prizes valued at more than $10,000 will be awarded for the 2020 CGC Registry Awards.

The CGC Registry is a free online platform where collectors register and display their CGC-certified collectibles and compete against other collectors around the world for recognition and prizes. This popular resource now boasts more than 5,000 participants, 75,000 sets and 600,000 collectibles.

Winners of major CGC Registry Awards will receive a personalized plaque, an icon of recognition next to their CGC Registry set and a $500 CGC grading credit! Winners will be announced on July 24, 2020.

This year, winners will be selected in the following major award categories:

  • The Three Best Golden Age Sets (comics published starting with Action Comics #1 June 1938–1959)
  • The Three Best Silver Age Sets (comics published 1960–1969)
  • The Three Best Bronze Age Sets (comics published 1970–1979)
  • The Three Best Copper Age Sets (comics published 1980–1989)
  • The Three Best Modern Age Sets (comics published 1990–present)
  • The Three Best Presented Sets (sets with the best descriptive text and images)
  • The One Best Magazine Set
  • The One Best Custom Set
  • The One Best Signature Series Set
  • One Collector for the John Verzyl Sr. Registry Masterpiece Award (based on a collector’s overall collection of Registry sets)

Overall quality, balance and completion will all be important considerations — in addition to a set’s score — when judging sets in competitive categories.

Additionally, collectors with the top set in each set-type category will receive an icon of recognition by his or her set in the CGC Registry. Winners will also have the option to print a certificate of achievement through their My Account page. Sets that are private will not be considered for awards.

To participate, just enter your set online in the CGC Registry by 5 p.m. ET on June 12, 2020. Winners will be announced on July 24, 2020.

CGC Chat Board Awards
In addition to the CGC Registry Awards, CGC will recognize three outstanding contributors to the CGC Chat Boards. The CGC Chat Boards are a vibrant community where collectors can come together to share their passion for comic books. It is a resource created and maintained by you, the collector, and the CGC awards would not be complete without the recognition of the top contributors. For the CGC Chat Boards Awards, we will consider a forumite’s complete history of posts in determining the winners. The winning forumites will receive a personalized plaque.
