    Hey Stephen, I can’t message you because I just made this account but can you explain to me where to find the most comprehensive listing of EVERY issue? I have so many that I cannot even keep track. Completely new to CGC and I see multiple lists pop up when I search for it and some don’t seem complete. Really trying to get everything plus some custom sketches I picked up graded and upload my whole collection to here 

    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.



  2. 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.

    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...

    Seems OK gain now.

    Hello Stephen, 

    Thank you for the thoughtful feedback.  The remaining rookie cards from those 13 players are from sets we currently do not grade. Namely, 1969-70 Topps and 1970-71 Topps.  These cards do not fit in our holder and we would not include player cards we cannot grade.

    This set structure includes one rookie card from each player and no additions or changes will be made to the set.

    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?



  5. 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?

    @StephenWA Our web team has corrected the listing of your card to reflect the actual Pristine 10 grade.

    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.



  7. 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.

    I have five cards that I recently had slabbed with the CGC holder and they have the pristine label but the registry only shows them as CGC Gem Mint 10.

    Any help to how to get this fixed?


    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.

    New Slot requests have a 5-7day turn-around not New Set Types as previously noted in the initial post.

    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.

    I do see several request from you in June.  We are currently working on requests from mid-February and apologize for the delay in adding your requests.  Due to the popularity of the sports card registry, we have had an overwhelming number of requests.  We did, however, create a set another collector had requested that you had also requested; 2018-19 Panini Status basketball .  This set was made available in July.  We appreciate your patience as we work through our backlog.

    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?




  11. 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

    You're welcome! We're happy to have more card collectors, the more, the merrier! :) 

    You don't have to put your requests in both places
