A couple of questions about the registry
1 1

4 posts in this topic

Registry interface looks awesome, just had a couple of questions regarding it:

1. Why are some Pokemon sets not available in the registry (i.e., EX Series sets)?

2. Has there been a consideration of having the registry allow "hybrid" sets? My sets have a combination of CGC 9.5s and PSA 10s, and I know others who also collect in this way. If the registry system allowed hybrid sets, there are way more people who would be interested in participating. I suspect that very few people would be interested in crossing the few non-CGC cards in their sets just to be able to participate in the registry system. Allowing hybrid sets would also entice PSA collectors to cross-collect CGC. You could even stipulate that x% of the set has to be comprised of CGC-graded cards. Anyway, just an idea.

 

Keep up the good work.

Thanks so much for your questions and comments!

Regarding set types, what you currently see is just the beginning. We will continue to add new set types and we welcome requests for new set types. When you click into each category, you'll see a link that reads 'Request a new set type here>'

Regarding hybrid sets, we do not have plans to allow cards graded by other companies. However, I will bring your suggestion to the team for consideration,.Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Awesome; thank you! I know people who have been hesitant to cross-collect CGC slabs specifically because they're working on PSA registry sets (and PSA only allows PSA slabs to be part of registry sets). If CGC allowed PSA slabs to be part of registry sets, I'm 100% serious when I say I know people who would start cross-collecting CGC slabs. There are enfranchised PSA collectors out there who are hesitant to cross-collect CGC slabs because of the current lack of a registry option. The suggestion might sound counterintuitive, but I genuinely think it would go a long way in encouraging PSA/BGS collectors to branch out and add CGC slabs to their sets.

lol that's pathetic.

Pathetic as it may be, it's the reality. Many people collect slabs in order to complete registry sets. And because there's no registry that allows both PSA and CGC slabs, there are a number of PSA collectors who would never add a CGC slab to their collection (which is a shame).
