  1. I nominate @BladeTX for his interesting take on a "The Walking Dead" collection - DOUBLE SIGNED throughout this set - see https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=123099
  2. Hi MG if you look at the TWD Legacy set in the Registry, you’ll see it has 670 books. That is the complete inventory of the original 2005-2019 issue. i hope this helps. Regards Stephen
  3. Please review the Registry listing for this card in my collection; it should be listed as a Pristine 10. Thank you
  4. When should we expect an announcement on the 2024 Registry Awards, @CGC Mike?
  5. I have made several requests for the addition of a Player Set (and a Rookie Player Set) for the NBA's first MVP, Bob Pettit. Please can I have an update as to WHEN the set will be created. Writing more broadly, I have noticed a thread, updated monthly, of new sets created, but it is a little frustrating not to know the progress on sets NOT created. Regards SA
  6. Thank you for your super-fast response. Appreciated. SA
  7. Dear Sir, I have added card #1017131057 to my cards inventory, but it has recorded as a Gem Mint 10 when it was graded as a Pristine 10. Please correct and confirm. Thank you :-)
  8. I cannot amend or add to the "Set Description" texts for my current sets. I have read through the thread, and cannot see any else mention the same issue...
  9. Hi Maribeth, Thank you for your reply, and noted. I see others asking about "over-size slabs for tallboy cards" such as 1969-70 Topps and 1970-71 Topps, and perhaps CGC will think about this as a new product for the future. However, WHO makes current decisions about Registry card sets? As you know, I am a new collector of CSG/CGC graded cards after having collected CGC graded comics for rather longer. I completely accept that I am a novice, but I am trying to learn. I keep coming across decisions that (to me at least) make no sense, such as the recent two I have raised: 1. NBA season MVPs without a slot in the Registry (and you told me that this extends beyond basketball to other sports too). I think this is an OBVIOUS reason for inclusion in the Registry, and the decision to exclude the five players I have requested should be reviewed. 2. The 75th Anniversary team represents the best 76 players in the history of the BAA/NBA, yet there are only 62 slots in the Registry (you have told me why). As I said, I think that this set is an excellent set for all NBA collectors to collect into, yet currently only (often expensive to acquire) Rookie Cards are included in the set. WHO decided that? I'm sure there is a reason for the decision. Can we have a different (a second) 75th Anniversary Set with slots for ALL cards from the 76 selected players. I'm sure all collectors (customers) would enjoy that set. Certainly I would. If decisions like these seem incorrect, to whom can a paying member appeal? Regards Stephen
  10. I noticed today an established "NBA 75th Anniversary Team" card set in the CGC Registry. I'm really pleased to see this, though I noticed it only has 62 players in the set (when the 75th Anniversary Team was of 76 players; the 50 players selected for the 50th Anniversary, plus 26 new/more recent ones including 11 current players). I also believe that ANY graded card featuring any one of those 76 players should be admissible into this set; it should be set for EVERYONE to collect in. If this is indeed the intention, do we simply request the addition of cards that we wish to see added in the normal way? Regards Stephwn
  11. Hi Ryan, Thank you for your reply, BUT I just checked. It is still NOT showing 10 Pristine. Please review again, and advise. Regards Stephen
  12. Dear Ryan, I have just found a second card in my inventory (#1018353042), which was graded "Pristine 10" by CSG, but only shows as "CGC Gem Mint 10" in the Registry. Please correct the Registry listing and confirm. Regards Stephen
  13. Thank you for your prompt attention. Appreciated.
  14. I am new to collecting sports cards. I noticed that some cards show an "RC / Rookie Card" logo on them. I had some NBA cards so logo'd, but CGC advised that (and I quote): "Rookie Cards are the first card in a base set with the RC logo on the card. Insert and parallels, regardless of the RC logo, are not eligible for rookie sets" (underlining is mine for emphasis). I have read around the internet, and there seems to be some debate as to the PRECISE definition of a Rookie Card. I know I can look in the Registry "Rookie Player Sets", but there SO MANY players, sets, and cards that are not even listed yet. Please can someone advise me of a simple way to determine HOW I know whether a card is a Rookie Card is eligible for the CGC Registry, or not.
  15. I have a card (#1020343347), which was graded "Pristine 10" by CSG, but only shows as "CGC Gem Mint 10" in the Registry. I looked at https://www.cgccards.com/card-grading/grading-scale/ for help, and it suggests nothing other than it should show as "CGC Pristine 10". Please advise. Thank you.
  16. Hi Maribeth, I am new to CGC Cards, both as a (mainly basketball) cards collector and as a user of the Registry. I am still trying to understand how things REALLY work around here. I have two questions: 1. I asked for new slots for two cards - 1401008898049 and 1401011923027 - to be added on December 15, 2023. I have been watching the Registry, and today (8 days later) they have not been added. Am I expecting too much? 2. I own Pristine 10 card 1401004561074. I tried to add it to my Registry, but it would not add AT ALL (because "it has no score"). I asked for a score to be applied to it, but was told that "programers know about this, but there is no timescale to resolve". Please help me to understand why "adding a score to a card" is not a very simple/quick action? Building an airport is a big job, but there is generally a target opening date... Seasons greetings, and best wishes for 2024. Regards Stephen
  17. Dear Maribeth, I am following up on my post of August 7th, and your reply of same date (both above). I have made many requests for Players to be added to “Rookie Player Sets”, and for new Basketball sets to be created. For example, I asked for Jalen Green, Zion Williamson, Zach Lavine, and Donte DiVincenzo to be added to “Rookie Player Sets” back in June (i.e., six months ago). They have still NOT been added. We have the awards coming up, and I think it is important that Sets are created/updated within a reasonable timeframe. At the start of this thread "5-7 days" is quoted... With the CGC Comics Registry, amendments are made within a few days; at the most, a week or two. What should be the expectation for updating the CGC Cards Registry, and – specifically – when will my June requests be executed? Regards Stephen
  18. Please can you add CGC Card sets (basketball) for the following: Shane Battier 2012-13 Panini Contenders Substantial Signatures Contenders Thank you, Stephen
  19. Hi Maribeth, I am a new collector of CGC (CSG) cards. My interest is in graded basketball cards. I have made a few requests in the last few months for sets to be added (via the links from the CSG/now CGC Cards website), but cannot see than ANY of these have been added yet. Do I need to do anything else, aside from being patient? Kind regards Stephen
  20. I am SO happy to be featured in Letter Hacks, TWDD #67, with @BladeTX and @Crops068. Thanks guys for seeding the idea to become a tiny, but official, part of the TWD universe. See you in January 2024! Stephen
  21. Hi Lyndsey, I am a new collector of CGC (CSG) cards. My interest is in graded basketball cards. I have made a few requests for sets to be added via the links from the CSG/now CGC Cards website, but cannot see than any of these have been added yet. Do I need to do anything else, aside from being patient? Kind regards Stephen
  22. I'm really happy with my seven Best Set awards - thank you, CGC. My target remains to win a Best Presented Set award (or Best Set - Modern Age award) for my Walking Dead set https://comics.www.collectors-society.com/registry/comics/PeopleSetDetail.aspx?PeopleSetID=110228 I'd welcome any feedback (from anyone) on things I might do to bring it into contention :-) Thank you.
  23. Good luck to everyone competing in this year's CGC Awards. I have achieved 18 Best Set Awards over the years, and from what I can see, I might win another 7 this year = 25. I REALLY like the CGC Awards, and long may they continue. Again, good luck everyone :-)
